Whether you have never picked up your DSLR camera before or are starting to become serious about photography, my lessons will help you get on the right track. We will go over: how to use your camera in different modes, how to control shutter speed, aperture, ISO, etc. what gear you should get, lenses and more. The ultimate goal is for you to be shooting in full manual mode, and then bring your pictures onto the computer and edit them! Every week, I will give you image shooting assignments and we will do weekly mini critiques. Once you feel comfortable shooting with your camera, we will get into more technical aspects such as printing, post processing, and proofing. I am a "Canon guy", so that brand of camera is my specialty! However, I have worked with students with all camera brands. Just an extra plus if you have Canon! I have been teaching Photography on Takelessons for 4 years now, and I can't wait to see you in class!

There is a complexity in the teaching of art that includes giving students the knowledge of different techniques in art, as well as teaching the process of creating, and the process of finding their own way in painting. Teaching art, for me, is not only a pleasure, but also a wonderful way to exchange my personal vision of life with my students.
I have 15 years of teaching experience in my studio and high education levels. I am a working artist myself and know the steps my students could take to study painting and express themselves in Art. The students will learn the elemental composition, color theory, use of brushes, different techniques, and movement in painting.
I teach beginners to intermediate artist in my studio and online.

Hands on instruction on manual camera settings (ISO, aperture, shutter speed, white balance, etc.). Framing the subject from different angles. And most importantly, how to see light the way your camera sees it.

Do you want to learn to draw your favorite characters, your pets, friends and family members? Or maybe you want to draw fantastical creatures with magical powers? Maybe you’re a medical student interested in drawing anatomy to help you study? Perhaps, you’re more interested in making intense abstract emotional drawings with deep philosophical meaning? Or, maybe you just want to learn to draw eyes and hands better? Whatever your area of focus or skill level, I will help you to sharpen your observational skills, expand your understanding of important art principles, become comfortable with a variety of drawing media, and teach you to translate your ideas onto the page to bring them to life. I believe art is an invaluable form of expression meant to bring the student peace, joy and a broadly applicable set of skills. My lessons are customized to the needs and goals of each individual student with subjects ranging from life art, to digital illustration, to mixed media drawing, and much ...

What is the Best Lighting for Photography?

The best photography lighting is based on several factors, and depends on what type of look you want when it comes to your photos. Natural lighting versus studio lighting brings about two different looks in your photography. We'll be discussing natural lighting, which does not need any equipment. And we'll also discuss the benefits of two styles of studio lighting. The natural lighting of a photo will be much softer and a warmer look while using studio lighting gives your photos a more ov …
