I have been an avid user of Photoshop for years. I actually started way back in 2001 using photo editing software. Back then I used Jasc Paintshop. But within a few years, I had switched to Photoshop. I am glad that I knew my way around it once I started blogging. It is probably the number one tool in my arsenal of blogging weapons, and with that tool, the most convenient editing skill is knowing how to create presets in Photoshop.
In photography and videography, I find that a green screen is an essential backdrop to have on hand. It is right up there with the standard white, gray, and black backdrops. So, knowing how to make your own green screen can really come in handy. However, the products required to make a green screen can be very cost prohibitive, especially if you are just starting out and are on a very tight budget. And in my case, if you are a total DIYer who wants the most bang for the least buck.
If you are anything like me, you rely on your iPhone to document a lot of important things in your life. Being a home improvement and DIY blogger, I find that my iPhone handles the brunt of the imagery. It’s just not that convenient to pull out all my gear while I am elbow deep in sawdust and paint. Therefore, snapping shots with my iPhone has really come in handy. Except, that is, when I need a wide-angle. No mater how far you zoom out, sometimes you just can’t capture everything. So, when I discovered how to take wide angled photos with an iPhone, I knew this was something that I wanted to share!
