Don’t you just love it…

…when you have a vision and then you make it a reality?!

I got an idea last week to do a photo spread that looks like a “screenshot” of my Instagram feed. Wanting to showcase some of my best photos from a photography project I completed last year, I took to the interweb to search for how to make that happen.

Sometimes when I dream up awesome visions, I forget that it’s probably not all that hard to recreate or manifest. Thanks to the land of Youtube, I found exactly what I was looking for! What I wanted to do wasn’t hard at all; it’s simply a photo collage with perfect squares.

I spent Saturday practicing and learning how to make a collage by watching a few different videos. You know how they say, “there’s more than one way to skin a cat”? Well, there is and I try to learn every single way! But seriously, I find that it helps me learn a skill if I learn it a few different ways. This is wisdom that I gained when trying to master all the math classes I’ve ever taken in life (ahem, college level algebra 3), and it really helps to reinforce the learning process. 🙂

Needless to say that with a little practice, I created a 3 x 3 masterpiece of last year’s Rock and Roll Marathon:


It was exactly what I wanted and I’m proud to say that I have learned yet another Photoshop skill. I’m almost an expert (not!) 😉

I love when I can “make my dreams come true” in Photoshop. How do you challenge yourself in post-production?
