  2. I JUST signed up! I did a 365 self portrait project over a year ago…it was an eye opening experience….BUT as soon as i figured out photoshop…I didn’t like who I became…The photos were beautiful…near perfect skin, a younger me…someone who I missed growing up. And now that I’ve turned 48…I’m having a very difficult time facing the music. Some days are better than others…but I think…I HOPE this will help bring me around to understand me…and NOT be so hard and judgemental on myself.
    Thank you.

  3. i just registered for the summer course and I am shaking. An impulse got over me and made me do it, and I can’t wait for it to start!
