Advanced Photoshop Workshop

1:40 PM

In line with the Scitech Month and SIMO, I gave a workshop at the advanced computer laboratory on advanced photoshop. Some of them enrolled online through SIMO while others were invited from other schools. It started one hour late because we have to install another software that we will be using. The workshop is all about using 3d renders and Typography. First we made a 3d text using Xara 3D and saved it as a jpeg file. Afterwhich, we pimped the text using different layer styles, gradient techniques and ornamental brushes. I also taught them a technique on making vista-inspired backgrounds. It was hard teaching the students because some of them are not really equiped with the basics of the program. We finished on time despite of these difficulties.

Here are some of the outputs:

Line Test: Bouncing Ball

11:52 PM

This is my first line test activity for animation. In this activity, we learned the property of a ball or any object in animation. As the ball falls, it does not remain round but it squeezes which looks elongated. When it touches the ground it squashes. It bounces back, squeezes and becomes round in mid-air. The animation does not always look like this though, some factors should be considered. The texture of the ground, the type of ball/object, speed of the object, etc. I used Photoshop and ImageReady for the animation.
