Learn Digital Photography, Photoshop CC and/or Lightroom Classic.
I’m an experienced teacher currently teaching Photoshop CC, Lightroom Classic and Photography at two of New Jersey’s leading art schools, and I know how to make learning fun and interesting. My teaching style is relaxed, with a straightforward approach, using my intuitive nature to guide the student’s development.
After finding out what you want to achieve, we’ll set some goals. The curriculum is very flexible, with the student setting the pace. Photography: We'll cover basic camera functions, Shutter Speeds, f-Stops, ISO’s, Depth of Field and Camera menus. As well as the basics of good composition, Leading Lines, Pattern and Symmetry, Rule of Thirds, Texture and Framing, etc. This could also involve field trips, but that’s your call.
Photoshop CC & Lightroom Classic Starting with the basics, getting Images into the software, using the Tools, Adjusting Color, Image Sizing, Working with Filters, (and Layers in Photoshop) just to mention a few. Saving and Exporting images to the various file types, DNG, Tiff, jpg, among others and the advantages and disadvantages of each.
Each session ends with something for you to work on at home. If you don’t have a copy of Photoshop CC or Lightroom Classic, you can download a free fully functioning trial version for our classes and if you don't have a camera I can provide one for the class. Lessons can be anywhere you choose, your home, the office, the local library, etc. I’ve even used Starbucks and Panera, on occasions. Lessons can be on Mac or PC. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Stay well. Bill Blanchard.

On the first lesson there is no obligation to continue past the first half hour if either of us desides we are not a good match for each other and there will be no charge. If we decide to continue past the first half hour, you will be fully charged for the total time of our class.
I’ve been teaching digital photography since 2005, Photoshop since 2006 and Lightroom since 2012 and am currently teaching the above mentioned subjects at the Visual Art Center of New Jersey and the Paul Robeson School for the Arts (aka Princeton Arts Council). I’ve also taught these subjects in the Middlesex County Vocational School System.
Classes are taught in two hour increments at a rate of $60 per hour. Two hours is the minimum charge.Classes can go longer if the students desires.
My professional photography work was noticed by the director of one of the the schools and she asked me if I had any interest in teaching. She worked with me to develop a curriculum. I really liked teaching and my teaching took on a life of its own and I’ve been doing it ever since.
I’ve taught photography to everyone from teens at a summer camps to seniors at adult learning centers. I’ve taught photography to everyone from teens at a summer camps to seniors at adult learning centers. I also have experience working with students who have autism and learning disabilities.
The most important thing is listening. Knowing that you’ve been heard. It all about good communications between you and your instructor. Good teaching is good communication
