For the last week of August, our daily journal was teaming with some unique articles that gave a great finish to a great month. We interviewed a photographer who shot soccer in 28 countries over a year, we heard from photography professor Chris Corradino on shooting reflections, and featured user Paolo Morucci’s tutorial on creating scars with PicsArt. We also released travel clipart, held some exciting art contests, and revealed our Top 10 New Users. That’s just a brief summary of the end of August, but read below to find get the full recap.
