Introducing a new project!
Manip Academy (thanks, cristii, for inspiration for the name) is a new photomanipulation project inspired by projecteducate. We all love to learn, and we learn best from one another. Here's our chance to share what we know.
Manip Academy is an education initiative designed to spread the knowledge and the love. It is a collaboration between CRPhotomanipulation and we-HEART-photomanip. We will share tips and tricks for photomanipulation success. It is difficult to write tutorials, but anyone can write a simple tip or describe how they achieved a specific effect.
This project will feature two weekly articles written by the community every week, on Mondays and Thursdays. This will be an ongoing project within our community, and we hope that many people will take advantage of the chance to sign up to submit one blog or even just a few sentences to help the community.
How you can help
Everyone is encouraged to get involved with sharing knowledge. It would be great if you could write a journal over at CRPhotomanipulation and/or at we-HEART-photomanip, but it's fine just to send us a tip; we'll write it up for you. The idea is not to have people writing tutorials all the time, but rather to share different little tips and tricks that help along the way. It can be something as simple as showing how a candle would reflect light on the wall, or it can be something more difficult like using a scatter brush or creating a glow effect. You could tell a big secret, or you could just tell a little tip. You can even just say how you did one particular effect in one of your photomanipulations.
Here are the currently reserved spaces. To reserve a space, you can just leave a comment with the date and topic of your choice. We'll be happy to add you.
