I am offering tutoring in Photoshop and video/audio production.

For Photoshop: With 20 years of corporate experience, I can tutor you in simply the basics or some advanced techniques, with the goal of improving your photographs. Instruction in sizing/resolution, tone and color correction, blemish removal, swapping heads in photos, removing backgrounds, learning shortcuts, paths, levels, sharpening, filters, etc.

For video production (with experience teaching video to middle school kids at a private school in Cambridge and also currently producing videos for Colgate-Palmolive): I can teach you how to storyboard, shoot, edit video, add music and type, make DVDs or upload to YouTube. It's a chance to express your creativity and become comfortable with video editing. Video programs include Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere and iMovie.

For audio production (which I do for a ballet school and corporate projects): Learn how to cut music such that the edits are invisible. There's nothing like good audio for whatever your project is.

Adobe Photoshop

Hi, I have over 20 years of Photoshop experience. Photoshop is a wonderful tool for making your pictures great.

First, I can teach the basics - sizing and changing resolution, cropping, adding type, image adjustments, etc. Then there are also the secrets to success with Photoshop. For example, color correction is the most important. Yellowish or bluish skin tone? How do you bring the color balance in line... whites need to be white. Removing imperfections and sharpening fit into the category of correction. There’s also a method of lightening areas of the photo without washing out already properly lit parts of the picture. And finally, I will mention the option of combining parts of two pictures to make one good one, such as swapping heads or even eyes so that a person’s eyes are not closed.

It's a chance to really enjoy Photoshop!

Video Production

As the video instructor at Fayerweather Street School in Cambridge, MA from 2009-2011, I taught middle school students in iMovie, Final Cut Pro and Amadeus (audio editing) making narratives, documentaries, commercials and experimental films. It begins with an idea, some storyboarding, acting, editing, and adding music, type or narration. My background includes teaching filmmaking for an arts/education program in Washington, DC to being a local video,/media/events producer for corporate accounts such as Colgate-Palmolive to having my films in festivals throughout the US. It's a chance to express one's creativity and gain practical and technical experience in making videos… or if you just want to improve your home movies and vacations videos.
