Firstly, before I launch into an exuberant rant about Ms. Merrick coming to WASHINGTON (!!!) I will need to explain my absence of a promised tutorial today. I did indeed record a tutorial and I indeed watched a bajillion tutorials on editing in IMovie. I was feeling pretty confident and spent hours last night editing, everything seemed liked it was smooth sailing until I played the screencast back and it was a choppy mess. Also, the quality I am getting from the Quicktime recordings is gosh awful, I know a lot of people record their tutorials this way and they look great so I am not sure what settings I am using to accomplish such lackluster results. I am not giving up though so I will have this darn tutorial for you and by that time I am sure you will have figured it out for yourself, but you will have it! Now back to the subject at hand AMY MERRICK!
I just found out this morning that the uber talented floralista Amy Merrick will be coming to Mount Vernon, Washington August 24th & 25th for a weekend intensive workshop at Floret Flower Farm with floral farmer Erin Benzakein. It seems like a once in a lifetime type opportunity and unfortunately it has a price to match (cue sad face now). I would have loved to join in, even gone with a group of us flower + photo enthusiasts, but alas it is out of range. I do think though if the floral industry seems to be your calling instead of sitting in a cubicle 10 hours a day that this could be a wonderful investment into your floral future and could be what is needed to jump start your career. I would love to know if anyone plans on going, I want to live vicariously. To slightly subdue my workshop envy, I ordered Studio Choo’s new book, I have wanted to get it since the launch but didn’t want to be frivolous with my spending, when I compared it in price to the workshop (that I wish I could afford) it seemed like a bargain! Of course it’s not the same, this is AMY MERRICK after all but I am highly anticipating it’s arrival and will be sure to give you a full review.
