Week 3 Blog post // Technology Stewardship

Greetings, fellow students and teachers J ! As this week’s blog post is all about online tools and using them, I think I have some personal information related to the subject that I can share.

As we all know, in the 21st century technology is advancing so rapidly that people cannot keep up. I believe everyone in this programme has some skills, which might be of use to me. Personally, I have been dealing with Photoshop CS for about four years now but I have always restrained myself to learn only the tools in that program which I would need. These past two-three weeks provided me with the motivation to advance In this particular field outstandingly fast.

Why Photoshop ? Well, considering that one of my passions is Photography, I really assimilated that Adobe programs and particularly Photoshop are tools which are directly related to it. Furthermore, in my opinion, they are essential to designers, because of the enormous capabilities they have to transform your imagination into an understandable drawing.

As a matter of fact, yesterday, while drawing the spidergram on my laptop Ibi looked really interested in the way things are put together in Photoshop. Although I don’t consider myself as a specialist,  I am more than willing to help him and everyone else who wants with all I can so they could get started with Photoshop or Photography. Nevertheless, I believe each group needs at least one person who is familiar with Photoshop, Illustrator, Corel Draw etc. , because a big part of proving ourselves as a trustworthy NGO is accurate and thorough presentation on the Internet. After all, nowadays Internet is of significant importance to every person on the world, no matter a student, a businessman, a designer…

I am open to any questions regarding the fields that I have been dealing with. Should anyone require information about Photoshop or Photography, please do not hesitate to contact and ask me. I have seen a lot of skills in the people of this programme that I want to acquire, so I am sure that mutual communicating and teaching will be of great use to our future J

    It is easy to learn the basics but it’s really hard to master in Photoshop…
    By the way,your logos look beautiful,so I think you are on the right way =)

    Indeed good Photoshop skills will be an invaluable asset to your team. How would you use them though? Because before you create the image in Photoshop, you have to have the idea for the image in your mind.
    There is a danger inolved in being a Pohtoshop boss and that is that you’ll be asked to take that role in every project team you are in. And then when you get to do an individual rpiject you might find out that you haven’t practiced other team roles enough. So beware of that.

      I consider Photoshop as a sideline so this is just a little something to contribute, as for my role im trying to do everything i can in order to get the essence of the project and fulfil my personal assignments. As for using the more you advance in the program the more diversity you have in your mind when you want to make something out of the program , and by researching the program itself you have to put in a lot of your imagination, so i believe that it is also a program which can stimulate your imagination.

    I have never been good at Photoshop so you could teach me some stuff. Obviously Photoshop is your way of expressing yourself and inspiring others.

      Yes i really do consider that program as a way of expressing yourself and you have no problem i can show you the basics, but if you are really into it you have to do researching by yourself as well 🙂
