Canadian artist Marla Julien
My journey began with a new camera I got before a trip to Australia. There I took many, many pics … though when I got home and moved them to the computer I was rather disappointed in how they turned out.
So I began the search for a class on how to better use my camera, and found one that I was happy with. During one of the weekly challenges I was introduced to trick photography and special effects … and, well, that’s was all it took. I was off and running.
I went through many tutorials by Phlearn and by other talented teachers while also learning my way around Photoshop, which was a challenge in itself. That’s when I came across Photoshop Artistry. At first I didn’t know if that was what I wanted to dive into, but a few weeks later I decided to take the plunge. I’m so glad I did. Because it opened up a whole new world.
