My name is Chris and I have been practicing photography and Photoshop for 10 years. But no matter what your level of experience, there is always more to learn! I just recently started scuba diving and that opened up a whole new world of photographic challenges! I am very excited to share my enthusiasm for photography and expertise with people willing to learn.
The first job I had involving photography was a graphic design job. I stitched panoramas by hand and wrote automation scripts for Photoshop. This is back when I was 19 and I fell in love with the process. Ever since then I could not learn enough about Adobe Photoshop or Photography.
My method of teaching is hands on. Developing the skills and knowledge in tandem is the best way to learn. So as we go though a lesson I will tell you what to do, but also why we are doing it and how the software or hardware achieves that result. A through understanding of how the software and hardware works creates a foundation on which to learn new skills, and even come up with your own techniques!
I would ask that students bring their own digital pictures to work on because it increases the interest for the student in their work. But if you do not have any of your own, we can take one with my equipment or you can use one of mine.
For my photography and Photoshop students, I look forward to setting up special sessions involving Water, Flame, smoke, long exposure, photography for 3d glasses (3d anaglyph), custom panoramas, focus stacking, multiplicity (one person a bunch of times in one photo), levitation Portraits, invisible people and other techniques.
See you soon!
