Ok my friends
If you’re reading this
Then you’re the ones
That left the check-box
So I must ponder
At this time
With my art
I have been here
A long time
Am old as dirt
Younger than sand
During that span
Had ups and downs
As all must face
At one time or another
Trial and error
Learn by doing
Baptism by fire
Was my learning curve
Dark to light
Photos to thoughts
Many ways to weave
The many dreamscapes
Dream to dream
My vision has
Become more clear
As a rise upon the ladder
Current Greenwich Time
Am standing still
As time slips backwards
Have I gone blind?
Is my skills gone missing
Is the dreams become
Nothing but a mere blur
My head spins
My heart hurts
To my feet
The climb to be
The best as one can get
Is not a lite task
Some have to work harder
Just last year
My dream flew upward
60 -- 90 golden stars
Update: Tutorial Club: A proposalUpdateMore Like This
We have created this group and are ready to roll! --> :iconmaniptuts:
What is this?
Tutorial club is an idea I had for helping bring great tutorials to the photomanipulation community and giving everyone a chance to try things out with some social support to help you be successful. When I returned as a photomanipulation CV, we did a poll and learned that people really want to see more tutorials and have more opportunities to practice. This idea is similar to "journal clubs" or "book clubs" that you may have been a part of at some point.
How does it work?
The idea is that we'll take turns signing up to bring a tutorial to a group of people who are interested in participating. We will either use CRPhotomanipulation or some other group. I'm willing to try a new, smaller group for people if they want to participate, so that it's more intimate. But I am fine doing it with the larger group as well.
