I have been working with Photoshop for over 5 years. Getting started with this program is as easy as understanding layers. Once you understand the basics of Photoshop, we can move on to more functions and tools inside the program. You will learn about file sizes, image types, color correcting, and editing "tricks". Some of my students personal favorite lessons include "basic compositing", "spot color correction" and "changing the background". Once you have a solid understanding of the basic tools, you can start to explore; and let your creativity take you wherever you want. My lessons are paced based on your learning style and speed, and are geared towards a stress-free experience. I will show you the ins and outs of creating digital art with this exciting program. The possibilities are endless! If you have an idea or certain type of image you want to work on, we absolutely can! Please note, I am not a graphic designer. I teach Photoshop for primarily image editing purposes. Logos and graphic illustrations are not my forté. NOTE: I teach the current Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud and as old as CS5. I do not teach Photoshop Elements, that is an entirely separate program.
About Sam H.

Hi! My name is Sam! This is my fifth year with TakeLessons and I couldn't be happier with the students that have come my way. If you're reading this, then you've taken the first step in finding a tutor that is right for you! I completed two Bachelor's degrees at Worcester State University in Massachusetts. I have a B.A in Spanish and a B.A in Communication. I love Spanish, and I believe that you can really get the hang of it after a little time and practice. With grammar review, practice, and vocabulary memorization, it becomes really easy to learn this language. I am more than happy to be here to help you learn this exciting language! Proper pacing is crucial to learning a new language. Therefore, I make each lesson customized for every student. Every lesson, you will receive downloadable links with all of the content covered in the lesson. I also teach group classes. These are great for those that prefer larger classrooms and interacting with peers. Check out the Takelessons Live page and sign up for some of my classes! Aside from Spanish, I also teach Adobe Photoshop & Photography. There are endless possibilities with Photoshop, and I am here to let you discover some of them. No experience? Tired of watching online tutorials with no feedback? Maybe you need a tutor to guide you through the process! We will start off with layers and then go on from there, moving into the more intricate tools such as the pen tool, layer masks, and blending modes. For photography lessons, I teach you the technical language you need to know when talking about photos. I will show you how to command your DSLR camera to get the exact photo you want.
