Adobe Photoshop

I have a BA in Fine Arts, and I have been a photographer for over forty years. In 1992, during my career as a still life photographer using film, I decided to get my feet wet with digital photography. A digital camera was very expensive in those days costing tens of thousands of dollars, so I thought learning Photoshop was a good place to start, as this was an important tool connected to digital photography. I decided to teach myself, first how to use a Mac computer, and then Photoshop. It was the school of hard knocks teaching yourself, but I had quite a passion for it, so much so, that I started to do more retouching on a freelance level, and then found a position at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia which lasted over eleven years. My experience there really fine tuned my talent, as the expected quality was very high. I would not recommend teaching yourself Photoshop, as this can be very arduous, but this self taught knowledge gives me the added feature of knowing the stumbling blocks, and being able to interpret for you the best method of learning.

Photography

Photography has been a passion for over forty years. I majored in Fine Arts in college with an emphasis on photography. With fifteen years as a commercial still life photographer using film, and now over ten years transferring to digital, I have a distinctive knowledge of both worlds. I no longer do any film, so my attention is in digital. I have been a hunter of images, documenting what I see around me in various subject matters from nature, to city, to architecture, to people in protest, and to images of snow at night. I have experience in recognizing light, design, subject matter, and composition, to create images of significance. I am now interested in passing my knowledge for people in a noncommercial atmosphere, learning digital photography, and how to develop your own creative talents, from the basics to the more advanced.
