Welcome To The Endless World Of Photo Manipulation
I started my creative journey 20 years ago, when I got my first copy of Photoshop as a birthday gift. It was a time of no YouTube, really slow dial-up internet connection, and not so many places to learn Photoshop from.
So, I needed to learn it on my own.
I practiced a lot, experimenting with the tools and having fun with Photoshop.
The first tools I learned how to use were the Magic Wand Tool and Lasso Tool. With those two tools I was able to select and extract objects from scanned photos. And that was how I made my first photo manipulation. My father standing in the mountain near the camp fire with a rifle in his hand.
That was the time when I opened a door to the world of endless possibilities.
