This fall, 2017, I am teaching an 10-week Digital Photography class on Tuesday evenings and teaching three Thursday night workshops on Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop software.
Digital Photo Class at Delaware Art Museum
Tuesdays, January 9 – March 13, 2018
6:00 – 8:30 p.m.
Ten weeks, 25 hours total. SLR digital camera is preferred, or a digital camera with a manual shooting mode. Simple point-and-shoot cameras will not work for this course, neither will cell phones. You need a camera with adjustments for ISO, shutter speed, and aperture. Students of all skill levels are welcome, age 15 and up. As part of this class, we sometimes photograph dress rehearsals at the Delaware Childrens’ Theatre.
See the Delaware Art Museum website to learn more about this Studio Art Class, or call the museum at 302 571-9590.
Adobe Photography Workshops, Spring, 2018
Dates To Come
Take your photographs to the next level in this series of workshops exploring Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. Students should have a basic understanding of these applications before enrolling. Students are encouraged to bring their laptops to class if they have the software already installed. Some bring their tablets and phones, but the class is designed around the desktop versions of these applications.
You can download trial versions of Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop at
If you decide to use the software after the trial period, it is $9.99/month.
Adobe Lightroom Photo Management
Learn how to manage the thousands of photographs saved on your computer in this introductory class. Using Lightroom’s library module, students will import and organize their photos by creating titles, captions, keywords, and more.
Adobe Lightroom Post-Processing
Lightroom software allows photographers to make global and spot adjustments to their digital images. Learn to use Lightroom’s graduated and radial filters, the adjustment brush, the spot removal tool, color adjustments, split toning, and other tools.
Intro to Adobe Photoshop
Photoshop is powerful software with many tools. In this introductory class, students will explore the toolbar, adjustment layers, selections, layer styles, masks, and more.
