Beyond My Comfort Zone

So... lately, I've had this urge to create an "official" logo for my design and photography portfolio.  I hate what I have now, it no longer seems to fit.  And I want something unique and original.  The problem is, I haven't really ever dabbled too far into designing logos.  The only professional logo that I can say I have designed from scratch is for my father's company.  And even then, he'd given me a pretty specific idea to work with.  This time, I really have no idea, other than that I want it to be original.

So I've started reading about other designers' processes when thinking up a logo and implementing it.  I never knew that Adobe Illustrator was a better program for creating logos either, I've always just used Photoshop (even though I do have Illustrator installed).  I'm going to be spending a majority of my free time studying up on how to effectively use the program... from what I've seen so far, the mechanics and layout of the program don't seem that different from Photoshop's.

Maybe I'm just subconsciously getting tired of Photoshop and this is my way of exploring something different.  Who knows?!  We'll see where this takes me.
