By the way, I’m still alive.
I did not fall into depression or anything post five weeks in Europe as I had expected. I’m alive and kicking, just sorting a lot of things back home after being away for more than a month.
I still have a few posts unfinished about my trip and a lot that I have not started yet. But I will give you a little break from me yapping about Europe and show you one of the things that I was busy with after coming back.
A few weeks before I left for Europe I agreed to help my friend shot some pictures on her wedding day. I had to say it did not go quite as planned as I found out on the day that the zoom button on my camera was broken. Coupled with the fact that I had zero people photography skills and no idea how to do the settings in my camera, they were really signing up for a disaster by asking me to do a favour.
Well, the raw pictures did turn out to be some kind of a disaster. But coming back from Europe kind of gave me a renewed sense of creativity and hope that I suddenly had this urge to try salvaging the pictures using some of the most basic photo editing apps I could find in Windows App Store.
The results: I have to say I am rather pleased with myself. Since I’m probably not going to branch out into a career in photography, let me show you some of the before and after pictures and how Adobe Photoshop Express has basically saved my life and made my friends’ day.
(I have to say it was a good thing that both my friends were good looking people who could pose naturally. I think half of the reason why they could still turn out well is due to their happy faces!)
And last but not least, my personal favourite…
