About Cynthia

Do you struggle with your new camera and wonder why your pictures don't turn out. Through hands-on teaching activities, you will be taking photos you will be proud to display. Confused about digital formats and saving images? I have tutored youth for years and love opening up the world of photography for growing artists. Photography has been my passion for 25 years. My experience ranges from group or individual portraits, kids, action, macro, flower, wedding and landscape photography. I have taken still, action, outdoor, indoor and stage photos of children for 25 years. My strength is in Canon cameras and have dSLRs and film. If you are interested in the skills needed for family vacations, senior pictures or wedding photography, I can assist with your needs. Don't miss capturing another moment of your children growing up, school events, sports events, flowers and special events. I can also assist with art shots. My daughter and I do wedding photography. I have completed a certificate of photography through WCTC and have additional training through Mt Mary. If you struggle with Photoshop, I am very strong in Photoshop CS5.5, In Design and Illustrator. After you have learned to take, edit and print photos, I can also assist with scrapbooking or framing.

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 used Photoshop Elements, Photoshop 7, CS4 and CS5.5. I am fluid in Mac and PC and have CS4 PC and CS5.5 for Mac. In addition to personal use, I have further instruction in effective Photoshop skills. Photoshop is a photo editing program that allows cropping, adjusting levels, exposure and color saturation. Filters, brushes and patterns allow for creative enhancement. I can reduce photos to black and white line drawings that can be colorized by hand with paints or colored pencils. I have used photoshop for personal editing, creating images, posters, and t-shirt designs. I have created business cards, letterheads and brochures with Photoshop images imported into Illustrator and In Design. I have effectively used photoshop for instructional power point images as well as backdrops for pantomime dramas. I have taught my children and ministry youth how to work with Photoshop as well. I look forward to sharing many tips for dynamic photographic enhancement of your work.


With 30 years experience: from point and shoot, SLR film or slide to dSLR (digital), I desire to help people be all the photographer they can be. I am Canon based but can assist with Nikon as well. My experience ranges from: low light, Wedding, family, landscape, floral, macro, children's activities, theatrical and concert. I am always increasing my knowledge of photography so I can share it with others. I have a certificate of photography from Waukesha County Technical College (WCTC). I have taught Interior Design for credit and non-credit courses through WCTC. I am a Wedding photographer with my daughter. I can make sense of f-stops, shutter speeds, exposures, low light, macro, action and studio lighting for the beginning or intermediate photographer. I am a hands on tutor, developing your skills through interesting projects. I shoot Fire Department Photography, and provide end of the year certificates using my action photos. After you have taken exciting photos, I can assist you in editing your photos. I will show you how to store, categorize and print your photos. ( see Adobe Photoshop resume). I look forward to helping your photographic skills soar!


I have sewn various garments, quilts and doll clothes for many years. I made model garments for a fabric store for 5 years. I strove for perfection due to the constant critiques my garments received. I won 2nd place for a baby quilt competition and have made more quilts than I remember. I use a Singer machine and Viking applique machine. My toughest project was a civil war dress with 26 yards of fabric. I do work with patterns.
