Photoshop

It’s not really my habit editing photos. There’s just some times where looking at edited photos amazed me. I love the way how the editor transforms a simple picture into something that is very cool to the eye. And that urged me to do editing on my own.

I’m actually currently enrolled to a short-term course called Adobe Photoshop. From the start of the class, the basics where not really new to me because I edit photos before courtesy of some alternative photo editors online and offline. I’m talking about the tools, types of it and how it should be used. As another Photoshop features were introduced, there’s this idea popping up my mind on where I should apply it. The hard part there is that on how I am going to use it given that I will end up to something I desire. It’s hard to the point that though you know how to use those tools, you still have to think of what pictures to use and how you are going to blend it in, in order for the outcome to be satisfying. Well, good thing there are tutorials on the web where all you have to do is to follow the steps written there. The tutorial provides you the things to use for that certain feature. So, all you have to do is not to get lost as the tutorial sometimes is a bit confusing for beginners. You just have to handle things like that and if still confused, use some alternatives. Meaning, your outcome still depends on you though guides were given. The very good thing when you’re a beginner is that, if you will end up something you really want to, the next time you do it will then follow smoothly with the feeling of excitement and curiousness on what else you can do. Sorry for me because, my works so far was just good but not that much.

Well, I wont quit while the opportunity is there wishing one day, photo editing is just a click away. BOOM!

Boredom

When you feel like you’re doing something you don’t know, watching TV though you don’t like, surfing the net and got nothing, walking around with no point, sleeping but you can’t, texting group messages and the likes – well, you are probably in the emotional state of nothingness called boredom.

I’ve been into these many times and the last thing I did to overcome it is to sleep – but that’s for me. Actually, those things I mentioned about boredom were just the usual case I have experienced. It may not be boring on your part or sometimes not on my part as well, but those may lead it there. And all you have to do is to feel it for a while until the feeling is gone.

Well, I have read some tips from the net on how to overcome it. Here it goes.

  • Know why you are bored. These were may be those I mentioned above. It’s like a problem, where you have to know it’s cause.

  • Do something different. Different in such a way that, it will be something totally new. You’ll never know, you’ll be amazed of something else you can do. With that, boredom will be your way to new learning.

  • Be socially active. This may not be something new but this may help. Open your social network accounts and join groups and discuss what’s the trend there.

  • Break your daily habit. Everyday may sometimes a deja vu for someone who always get bored. Break it like adding new hobby – hiking, drawing, playing an instrument, card games, photography, etc.

  • Avoid boring things. This tip is quite funny but this is true. You should avoid things that would lead you to boredom.

These were just simple tips but were really useful. Life has full of adventures and you have to discover it. Enjoy it even if it’s boredom!
