Announcing a new Meetup for The Austin Beginners Photoshop Meetup Group!
What: *Free* Photoshop 'Creativity Contest'When: Sunday, March 14,[masked]:00 PM
111 W. Anderson Ln. Suite D213
Austin, TX 78752 'Creativity Contest'
Even though this is a 'beginners' Photoshop group, I thought I'd open it for this special Meetup and give some of you a chance to display your talents. All levels of experience are invited to participate, however I suggest that you be somewhat familiar and comfortable using the program. This session will give everyone the opportunity to express yourself, put your abilities to the test and demonstrate your skills and creativity.
I'll distribute identical images along with instructions, rules and guidelines to follow as if I were a client requesting a particular Photoshop illustration for my business along with details of the basic concept.
You'll have about 1.5 - 2 hours to come up with a unique and imaginative design based on the elements you've been given to work with. Any version of Photoshop is acceptable, although you'll need to supply your own laptops ... MAC or Windows ... either is fine.
(I have 2 laptops available for loan @ $5.00 each ... contact me prior to reserve one)
We'll take a short break at about the 2 hr mark and come back and share our work and personal techniques. Not only will this be good practice but it will also allow everyone to learn from one another. Then we'll all take a vote on who we believe would be best suited to be hired for this fictional project with regard to his/her example and presentation. (obviously you won't be able to vote for yourself)
The winner will be awarded a prize
I'm not planning to instruct or assist ... you're pretty much on your own.
~~ IMPORTANT ~~
If you decide to enter and place an RSVP, you will be expected to attend. There have been entirely too many 'no-shows' at prior Photoshop Meetups ... so please be considerate. If for any reason you think you may not be able to attend, then don't RSVP ... allow someone else to take the seat. It's not necessary to click the 'NO' circle if you can't make it.
There are no 'maybes' although I'll have a waiting list should there be an overwhelming interest.
As noted, this is a free event and will be limited to the first 8 that rsvp. (of course a small donation would be greatly appreciated but certainly not required)
You're welcome to bring a snack and something to drink ... we have a fridge.
I'm looking forward to this Meetup ... I think it'll be interesting, fun, educational and entertaining ... especially if we can get a lot of good interactive participation.
Depending on how this goes, I have ideas for future creative activities.
Hope to see you there.
