Learn Digital Photography and/or Photoshop CS 6, Photoshop Elements, etc.
I’m an experienced teacher currently teaching Photoshop and Photography at two of New Jersey’s leading art schools, and I know how to make learning fun and interesting. My teaching style is relaxed and laid back, with a straightforward approach, using my intuitive nature to guide the student’s development.
In our first session, after finding out what you want to achieve, we’ll set some goals. The curriculum is very flexible, with the student setting the pace to reach those goals.
Photography: We'll cover basic camera functions, Shutter Speeds, f-Stops, ISO’s, Depth of Field and Camera menus. As well as the basics of good composition, Leading Lines, Pattern and Symmetry, Rule of Thirds, Texture and Framing, etc. This could also involve field trips, but that’s your call.
Photoshop: Starting with the basics, Getting Images into P’shop, Using P’shop Tools, Adjusting Color, Image Sizing, Working in Layers and Filters, just to mention a few. Saving images to the various file types, DNG, Tiff, jpg, psd among others and the advantages and disadvantages of each.
Each session ends with a homework assignment. If you don’t have a copy of Photoshop, you can download a fully functioning trial version for our classes.
Lessons can be anywhere you choose, your home, the office, the local library, etc. I’ve even used Starbucks and Panera, on occasions. Lessons can be on Mac or PC.
Thanks for taking the time to read this. Stay well.
