About Ramon

I have been a professional photographer for more than 25 years.

I have been teaching the skills to be a great photographer for more than seven years as an adjunct professor at an internationally known college. In that setting, the students in my classes won best of show every semester accept for one even when I only taught froshmen classes.

I can teach you just about anything you want to know about the mechanics, the composition, the art and the style of photography today through film or digital means.

I am quite fluent with Photoshop as well as Lightroom and the software packages that come with some camera brands as well as the share ware products such as Gimp or Picasa.

I can show you how to make your great images even better and how to make your next photo shoot even better than that.

I see modern photography and photo enhancement as part art, part science with a little bit of magic.

Anyone can teach you the mechanics, I can teach you the art and the magic.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 have been a photographer for more than 30 years, starting of course with film and following the natural evolution of the craft from the darkroom to the software editing tools we use today. I use that darkroom experience to achieve the same nuances in image enhancement and preparation that the masters we study in art and photography history achieved. I have taught Photoshop, Lightroom and other editing tools for photography and graphic design applications in a professional career college setting. I taught for more than 7 years and have kept up with the changes in the software and the styles in which people apply the tools therewith. I can teach anyone to tap into their minds eye and create the images and designs they desire. While teaching, the students who responded to my direction won 90% or more of the awards when their work was compared to their peers in juried shows and competitions.

I can help with the practical to extreme use of Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and all of the software associated with them including Adobe Bridge and Adobe Camera Raw.

Photography

I have been a photographer for more than 30 years, shooting in a professional studio and product shooting situation and pursuing my own personal artistic photography. I have studied Art and Photography History extensively and taught those subjects as well for 7 years at a local college. I also taught Photography from beginner level to advanced. I have taught studio lighting, shooting with natural ambient light and all aspects of understanding. harnessing and controlling light through photographic exposure. That being the mechanical side of the craft, I have always stressed the creative side of the art which is what makes a good photographer make outstanding imagery. Anyone can take a good picture these days, but it is additional knowledge which takes it to the next level of creativity and craftsmanship.

We will start off with the basic mechanics and safest practices of using a camera to advanced lighting and composition of the photograph. There are some things in the photographic world that are founded in long traditions as well as new stories being written by today's technology.
