I teach Photoshop skills ranging from basic adjustments and color grading to full photo manipulation and digital art. I can teach drawing and painting using photoshop as well as it is one of the best tools for digital illustration and creating digital art. You will learn the workspace and tools as we develop a workflow that suits your style of editing and creating. As you advance you will learn about masking and layering techniques using blend modes. You will be able to cut out portions of a photo or add elements to a photo that look natural and as if the camera had taken the picture that way. If your interests are in digital art, you will learn all of the same drawing concepts of traditional drawing plus digital painting techniques and color theory. I can also give you the tools and understanding to create your own digital brushes to use on your future art projects. If you are a more advanced student, we can dive into more directed areas of study all incorporating dynamic compositions and lighting to tell a story. Again, if you are more interested in digital art, this will include painting techniques and color theory. I love teaching and I'm so happy I can continue to share my passions with those willing to try something new and challenging!

Understanding the Basics - goes over how to navigate the interface, basic shortcut keys, adding text, working with images, and other features to get you up and running as quickly as possible. Layers - shows you how to combine multiple images, resize them, split them apart, and add in color boxes. Selections - starts by showing how to remove simple images from a photograph and finishes by showing how to select out strands of hair and change the background. Color Correction - goes from simple corrections to in depth theory. It uses this theory to fix complicated photographs, change the color of a shirt from yellow to green, and even turn part of an image into black and white. Object Removal - isn't just about how to remove a pimple. It covers removing wires, large objects such as a fencepost, and even how to get rid of something like a date stamp when it is in front of a person's face. Beauty Retouching - I show you how to remove wrinkles, increase the size of an eye or decrease your nose size, how to smooth skin, what to do if you make a mistake, and how to fix problems such as bloodshot eyes. Compositing - you see how all of these individual tools we've learned along the way can actually be combined to accomplish just about anything, from merging together household goods to to removing a person from a photograph and putting someone else in that person's place. Wrap Up - shows how this is a solid grounding and while there's still plenty to learn, you now know enough to be dangerous.

Whether you’re a local wedding photographer looking to enhance your final images, a graphic designer working for a major advertising firm, or just someone who’s interested in sharpening up some old family photos, Adobe Photoshop can get the job done. But like any tool, Photoshop is only as effective as its user. If you understand the ins and outs of this powerful editing suite, you’ll be able to perform magic on photos and videos alike. Without this knowledge, however, even opening a file correctly may be a struggle. That’s why my Photoshop class is essential for anyone who wants to know how to use Adobe’s premiere image editing software effectively. Whether you’re a complete newcomer or someone who merely needs to brush up on some of its more powerful (and complicated) features, this class will offer everything you need to take your Photoshop game to the next level. And since this class breaks everything down into simple, easy-to-find categories, you can even treat it like a comprehensive reference guide. Do you need to learn how to retouch a flawed photo? Remove red eye? Work with layers and special effects? It’s all here and easily accessible. This is the perfect class for… Amateurs and hobbyists who are interested in editing with Photoshop but have no experience whatsoever. Students who have the basic down but want to take their knowledge and experience up a notch. Graphic designers who want to master the industry’s leading photo editor and get a leg up in their career. Portrait, landscape, wedding, and fashion photographers who are hoping to build an unparalleled portfolio - and increase interest from clients. Anyone who’s interested in learning any aspect of Photoshop and how it interfaces with the rest of Adobe’s Creative Cloud. In other words, no matter where you are right now, this class can help you push your editing skills forward. All you need to get started is Adobe Photoshop. And though many of the skills you’ll learn will transfer to previous editions, you’ll get the most out of the class by taking full advantage of the latest Adobe CC version. So, how do you know that I can help you? Simple. I have hundreds of Photoshop students that have built and refined their image editing skills over the past 8 years. I’ve worked with people from a variety of backgrounds, industries, and experience levels. And together, we’ve helped them achieve the skills they’ve always wanted. I’m not just interested in throwing a lot of information at you. I want to guide you from your current skill and experience level to the place where you’ve always dreamed of being. A place where working in Photoshop becomes intuitive - like an expert chef in a well-designed kitchen. I’ll teach you the tools, techniques, and tips you need to become a Photoshop pro. So, are you ready to put the things you’ve been imagining onto the screen? If so, then let’s get started…
