It is really. Photography is the reason that I write. I started this blog as a way to keep track of my projects. I thought that by writing out what I was doing, I would be better able to process my work. I think that it has helped. A bonus of writing a blog has been all the creative work by others that I have been exposed to. I have enjoyed looking at blogs about technology, cooking, and writing, in addition to those about photography.
Today’s post is about Illustrator, which I purchased recently as part of CS6. The link there is for the specific version I purchased. I bought it because in addition to taking a photography class this semester I am taking a class called Computer Art Studio. We will be covering InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator. I’ll be honest and say that I am much more a photographer than a tech person, so I am a bit apprehensive about this class. However, I am taking the class because I think it will benefit my photography. One of the first things I am learning to use is the pen tool. The pen tool works the same in all three programs. If you are looking to learn to use the pen, I would recommend this video. It runs about 21 minutes, but it is a good place to start.
Here is my first project:
I was really happy with the way it turned out. I am hoping to create my logo for my business eventually.
So, thank you to all my readers who have been following my photography journey. I hope you enjoy my occasional foray into related fields!
