As you may already know, I work as a technical tutor at an arts University. And part of my role is to show students some of the functionality within Adobe Photoshop. To do this I tend to use mostly stock images with a few of my own mixed in. The purpose of this post is to highlight a particular image that I have used regularly over the years.
Its a stock image from Adobe. A simple head and shoulders portrait of a woman. The reason I bring attention to her, is that I believe she deserves some recognition. Over the past 4 months alone, she has been retouched by over 200 students and upon discovering the power of Photoshop, many of them have been unkind to this innocent unknown lady. As I browse over the students screens I commonly see a few extra eyes, a missing nose or some unfortunate facial hair. Yet each week as I start a new class, there she is, resolute in her role as a visual mentor for todays youth.
So I would like to make a toast to this mystery lady, in helping so many become proficient with tools of deceit;
The the blonde haired lady!
(Rollover for an example of what I teach them)
(Yes, I'm aware that this may make me a morally bad person)
(But it's fun!)
