I'm feeling pretty pleased with myself today.
I mastered the art of making a real poached egg, without any assistance of any fancy gadgets. It was just me, an egg and few basic tools.
And you know what? By following careful instruction, it was dead easy!
I can't tell you how long I've been wanting to do this. After a failed attempt many moons ago, I lacked the courage to try again until yesterday.
I seriously waited far too long.
After a few tweaks, and my second attempt, I hit perfection this morning. I snapped a photo of my work of art shown above.
During my morning walk with the crew, I got to thinking that clipping masks are bit like poached eggs. They're surrounded by an aura of fear and intimidation which is just not warranted.
They are SO easy to use. You just have to follow the basic steps and your reward can really be something quite special.
So I spent the day making a video providing easy-to-follow directions for using FotoBlendz clipping masks which includes a few BONUS techniques for more advanced usage.
And if you fancy trying your hand at a poached egg as well, you can find some great instructions here too!
