What does a “designer” do when she has no work? I dream. I dream of a job I really like, working from home 20-30 hours per week, earning at least $XX/hour. I’ve been focusing my education on photo restoration. Just earned a certificate from lynda.com, and am looking for more tutorials about restoration.
Photo restoration. I had fun with it in college. One of the first assignments we had was to take a baseball player out of a team photo, and put him into his own photo. We had to add an appropriate background, and manipulate both images so they matched. I must say, I think I did a pretty darn good job!
See the fifth (middle) guy in the back row? He “insisted” on being in his own picture! 😉
So, I obliged.
I can see that it needs a little work, yet, but, I know I had one of the best images in the class. (Brag, brag!) But, as you can see, a lot of his bottom half was missing in the group photo. I had to create legs and feet from pieces of the other men in the photo. I also had to finish his arms, and add a glove.
All in all, for a first attempt, I think I did a nice job. (Pat, pat)
So, I’m enjoying learning how to restore photos, and am hoping to some day get some (paid) work doing so!
