Cal State Fullerton
all about me
Hey y'all, welcome to my semester project! I'm Lara, and I'm a 20-year-old student here at CSUF. I'm currently a second year Communications Journalism major, and I hope to graduate by 2019.
I was born and raised in The Bay Area where I lived with my mom, dad, and guinea pig. I decided to move away from home to go to school in SoCal because I love the weather! I'm a sucker for sunshine, and I love that even in the winter it feels like a summer in NorCal.
I once raised a baby duckling for two months. I lived on the water in NorCal because my house is on the bay, so every year during the spring baby ducklings would wander around my neighborhood. A duckling got stuck in a drain pipe and abandoned, so I got to keep it until the ASPCA could take it.
I enrolled in this class because I have no previous experience with Adobe programs, such as Photoshop, Illustrator, or InDesign. I wanted to familiarize myself with them now so that when I enter the real world of media, I don't need to waste any time having someone train me in order to get a job done.
These are a few examples of how I applied the Photoshop skills I learned in this course. I'm no Photoshop guru, but I have a much better understanding of how to use Photoshop, and you can see the improvement in my work.
These images are from the first assignment in this class using Adobe Illustrator. With Illustrator, you can create and manipulate original content with all of the available tools. It's great for creating, but not editing.
