What I ate and did this weekend

I’ve had a good weekend. I’ve been doing a two day learning course on Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. I’ve been using Lightroom for a couple of years but I know very little about Photoshop. It was a really good experience. The weekend was arranged by the Canberra School of Photography and the teacher was David Harradine. I’d happily recommend courses by Irene Lorbergs at CSP and David from whack.com.au

I’ve also eaten well this weekend mind you at the course I ate nut muesli bars, potato chips and diet coke.

Check out this gallery for some of what I ate and some stuff I learnt about layers and masks in Photoshop.
