Subjects

Art

Adobe Photoshop,

Adobe Photoshop

When working at Brown & Williamson Tobacco I used Photoshop daily. Photo Shop is used to manipulate photos and art work. There were many photographs that I removed the back grounds and and put the subject on a different back ground. I used to work at several television stations. When working on photographs I would do stills or back grounds for different stories, that would be shown on the air. Most of the time the back grounds would be out of focus or a little blurry. There were many ways to do that. You can add, subtract, color, surface, layers, mirror, and restore pictures that have been damaged and so on. Photoshop is used by Graphicc Artist, Photographers, The Movie Industry.
Drawing,

Drawing

I start off drawing with pencil. Most drawings start off with basic shapes. Squares, rectangles, circles, ovals and other shapes. Then the Artist will use his artistic ability to take basic shapes and manipulate into subjects and a nice composition. Then we will need to add a little color to our art work. We will learn the color wheel. Learn to mix our colors from the color wheel We will work with colored pencils and color markers.
Painting,

Painting

Every one can learn to draw and paint. Imagination plus talent plus skills. Everyone has talent! With a little imagination the skills can be taught. I have always liked to paint. I started off with the paint by numbers paintings. Not long after that I would draw my own pictures. I wanted to paint my own subjects and I liked mixing my own colors. I like teaching composition, the color wheel, mixing colors, prospective, brush strokes with the different types of brushes. I like painting in water color and a acrylic. Now I have a business painting pictures of peoples house's. I take pictures of the house. I start off with a rough drawing. I like painting with water color paint. But not a water color style, more like acrylic or oil. Sometimes I like to mix a little pen and ink in my pictures. I think of these as architectural paintings. I like painting gourdes as my hobby. I usually paint them with acrylic paint.
Photography

Photography

I worked at Auto Trader in the dark room. I developed black and white film, and printed black and white pictures. I screened them to be printed. When I worked at Brown Williamson Tobacco I took many pictures for the print shop. I would use graphic software to print, edit, save, restore. My pictures would be used for publication in many various ways. I worked as a wedding photographer. I have photographed about 30 weddings. I have posed many brides and grooms for their big day. I would take the orders for the prints and many enlargements that followed. I can teach 35 mm photography as well as digital. I know photo shop, print master, and different desktop publishing.

Knowledgeable and kind

Steve is very professional and knowledgeable. He is able to guide our son in drawing techniques while allowing him to explore his own abilities. We highly recommend this instructor.

Worked Well With My Husband Who Is Learning How To Draw For The First Time

Steve is patient, amiable and skilled. He taught my husband a technique for drawing from a reference photo. John looks forward to working with him on a weekly basis.

Ingrid, 7 lessons with Steven

Steven showed up to my house 15 min. early, which I like. I think we will work out.

1st tutor lesson in regards to working the basics of my computer, the time went by so fast. Steven was very patient in regards to my computer knowledge. Maybe after a couple of lessons I can turn on my computer and feel comfortable with my new knowledge. My tutor will have to delete all the garbage I have on my computer and show how to do this, how to get there. I like Steven and will continue to use him at this point.
