Summer Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC Classes


LR CC Mixed Logo

Photoshop CC logoA couple of weeks ago I posted that I would be teaching Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC classes for PVNET this summer. The details have been worked out now.

There will be three classes all during July. Each class will meet for one week on Monday through Thursday evening from 6:30-8:30 pm for a total of 8 hours.  The classes will be taught at PVNET’s summer home in the Palos Verdes Peninsula Center Promenade. It is on the second level right beneath the Regal Theater.

We will be using the latest software, but if you have recent versions of either program, that will be fine.  The number of PCs are limited, so sign up early! To the best of my knowledge this is the only adult school or similar educational facility that has Creative Cloud (CC) versions of these programs.

To find out more about each class and to register, click on the class link below.

I hope to see you in one of the classes.

PVNET Now Has Adobe Creative Suite

PVNET Annex

Yes, that is right. PVNET has just acquired the complete Creative Suite package. Check out their current class offerings. In fact, there is a new InDesign class starting this Tuesday. As many of you know I have taught several classes at PVNET over the years. The Photoshop and Lightroom classes I have taught in the past, required students to bring in their laptops with the software installed.

Now, they have both Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5 on their desktop computers. This will open up these classes to those of you who have the programs on your desktops. Within the next few weeks, I will be posting when I will be teaching classes in these programs at PVNET. Remember, Photoshop is now only a subscription program, and you can get it and Lightroom 5 for only $10 a month. That is a fraction of what it cost you to buy these two programs previously.

Stay tuned for more details.

By the way, I would really appreciate it, if you would share this post on the social media sites you follow you follow, as well as clicking on the Like button below. And always, please leave any comments you may have.

iPad Photography Class Starts January 8th

Did you get a new iPad for Christmas and want to learn how to take great pictures with its camera? Do you want to find out how to enhance or add special effects to those pictures and video clips you have already taken?

One of the classes I will be teaching beginning January 8th at the Griffith Torrance Adult Center will teach you how to do these things, as well as many others.

This short video further describes the class.

Are You New to Your Camera?


Did you get a new camera for Christmas? Is it your first digital camera, or is this your second or even a third one? Even if your camera is not that new, are you making the most of its capabilities? If your answer to any of these questions is “yes”, you should consider taking a course devoted to how to use your camera.

The second section of my camera class at the South Bay Adult School, begins Wednesday, February 15th. To find out more about this class, CLICK HERE.  To register for the class, you can go to the South Bay Adult School’s website.

Due to the several holidays in January and February, I am teaching only one camera class at Torrance this term. This class starts in about a week, on Monday, January 23rd. To find out more about it, CLICK HERE, and scroll down. You can register for the class by going to the Torrance Adult School website. In fact, this is a good term to take the class. Normally the class is five, or on occasion six 2-1/2 hour sessions. However, this term there are seven sessions, which means more instruction time for the same price. If you plan to sign up for the class, you will need to do so the very first part of this week.

Remember, the classes at both schools cover the compact camera models, as well as more advanced models, including digital SLRs.

A Cold Winter is Coming


Winter term classes start at the South Bay Adult School, Torrance and PV NET next week. Torrance had to  cancel three of the classes already. South Bay Adult School will no doubt cancel both classes that were due to start next week unless there are some last minute registrations. All of the cancellations are due to low enrollment.

If you have any comments regarding how the current classes I teach can be improved, or ideas/suggestions for future classes, please leave a comment. I have to submit classes I would like to teach this spring in a week or two at the very latest. Totally new classes will not be possible until the Fall Term. However, changes in scope, focus, and approach to existing classes can often be accomplished rather quickly. So please let me knew your ideas.

Thank you.
