Photoshop Homework Week 1

I am LOVING my new Photoshop class with Jed from A Photo School.
(And not just because I'm taking it with my friend Mallory and we talk and giggle the whole time!)

I've been using Photoshop for years, so I wasn't sure how much I would learn in the first class.
But HOLY COW, I learned more than my little brain can hold!

Our first homework assignment was to take a Raw image (a photo taken in raw format on a DSLR camera) and using only the Photoshop RAW tools, make the image better.

So here's my RAW image.
This was part of the shoot I did for my mother and father-in-law for their wedding anniversary.

And here's the one I changed using only the tools in Photoshop's Camera Raw.

It doesn't look like I did much more than make it black and white, but I swear I did.

Our other homework assignment was to create an image in Photoshop and play with as many tools as we wanted.
Here's my masterpiece.

Pretty sweet right?
My drawing skills haven't improved since I was 3.

I CANNOT wait to see what Mallory came up with.
Our second class is tonight.
Wish me luck!
