I like the creative process of exploring and looking at new things so my approach is have fun with the fundamentals. Once a degree of program knowledge is achieved, one can proceed to use his or her natural creative talent creative production and enjoyment. The Adobe Suite of creative programs contains amazing tools, easy to start learning, yet mastering takes years. It's like playing the guitar or the piano - getting started is easy; mastering takes time.
