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.

Photoshop, Photoshop Elements Lessons Learning Photoshop can actually be fun. I’m an experienced teacher, and I've taught everyone from kids to seniors. Lessons can be in groups, one-on-one, in your office, at home or anywhere you choose. We can work on a PC or Mac, whichever you prefer. If you don’t have a computer I can provide one for the lessons. One comment I always get from my students is, “I never thought I would have so much fun learning this.” So give it a try.

I’m an experienced teacher currently teaching Digital 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 straight forward approach, using my intuitive nature to guide the student’s development. After finding out what you want to achieve, photographically, we’ll set some goals and start right in. The curriculum is very flexible, with the student setting the pace to reach those goals. Lessons can be on Nikon, Canon or any DSLR digital camera. I’ll even provide a camera for the lesson if you don’t have one. Lessons can be anywhere you choose, your home, office, the local library, Starbucks, Panera, what ever works best for you. Lessons 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 & Symmetry, Rule of Thirds, Texture and Framing, etc. This could also involve field trips, but that’s your call. Each session ends with a Homework assignment, directly related to the lesson taught. The assignment will be reviewed at the start of the following class. I know our mistakes can be our best teachers, so if you have any concerns about getting the homework right, please don’t be.

Macintosh

I’ve been teaching Mac computer skills to people of all ages for years, making it interesting and simple to understand. My teaching style is laid back and relaxed, with a straight forward approach. The curriculum is flexible with the student setting the pace. Lessons can be in your home, at the local library or anywhere you choose. I’ve even used Paneras and Starbucks on occasions. Most lessons run about 2 hrs. and if you don’t have a computer I’ll provide a MacBook Pro running the latest software, for our lessons. The Lessons: First if you haven’t done this already, we’ll set up your computer just the way you want it and then wi’ll cover how the computer works and how to use it. Moving forward we’ll cover the basic software that came with your Mac, Safari, Mac Mail, iTunes, iCloud, iCal, the Address Book, iWorks, etc. and of course I’ll answer all your questions along the way.
