I am teaching Photoshop since 2014. More than 60 students have finished my course.
You can choose between studying online (via Skype) or taking personal lessons in Belgrade.
How are my online classes organized?
You send me your photos you’d like working on during our class (we can use my photos if you wish). I host the class via Skype through the «screen sharing» option. I am explaining and showing all the subtle details of Adobe Photoshop and answering any questions. If there’s some spare time left, you will be repeating under my guidance everything that you’ve learned during our lesson.
Teaching is individual and based on your skills in Adobe Photoshop. Some techniques from the course can be replaced with others upon your request.
All students will receive a record of our lesson so they can revise the material at any time. As a bonus, I will share with students various materials used in the process: presets, actions, overlay layers, free plugins, etc.
Online classes are only prepaid. You will need a stable Internet connection, a microphone (the built-in microphone in a laptop is suitable), Skype and Photoshop installed program on your computer.
After classes you can ask me any questions.
