About Melody

NY College professor teaching photography and digital editing available to tutor you one to one. Learn how to maximize the use of your expensive cameras with the 'holy trinity' of photography. Learn the compositional skills that turn your pictures from snapshots to professional looking photographs. Afterwards bring your photographs into Photoshop and retouch them subtly, or create creative collages from your own pictures or get pictures from the web. Also learn the very important skill of digital file management. Be able to find any file in 5 minutes or less.
I have had many years of teaching as well as being a working photographer. If you are interested in learning any of the above skills, I can provide you with samples as well as posted testimonials. In an objective humble description of myself, I am creative, technical, experienced, reliable, patient and funny. Oh yes, and mature.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe Photoshop

I am a professional photographer in New York City and I have been teaching at Pratt and CUNY for the last 20 years in Digital graphics. I can help you with any problems or interests you may have in going forward.

Macintosh

I have been teaching and creating computer graphics on the Macintosh since it was first introduced, approximately 1986. Prior to that I used a PC.

In addition, I work as a photographic tour guide, teaching composition and basic SLR operation on-location for the Digital Photo Academy, a workshop arm of the retail store B&H.
