Private Photoshop Lessons

Whether you are a beginner or intermediate photo editor there are always new things to be learned. Individual photo editing instruction will be tailored to your needs from learning the tools for editing photos to creating your own works of art, photo books, newsletters and greeting cards. 

Editing portraits is an important skill if you photograph people, and some of the most requested lessons I teach. Don't rely on quick fix software that leaves your clients with plastic looking skin and fake eyes. Portrait retouching needs finesse and a light but effective touch.

Compositing photos is another powerful function of editing software.

Let’s get busy. You will get more from our time together if you are familiar with the general operation of your computer and have at least experimented some with your editing software.
