This website is about my individualized digital camera class in Bakersfield, California. My name is Ed Ruth and I have been teaching photography for almost ten years. I provide 1 to 1 (two people may attend) classes covering your digital camera and lenses.

Camera class: I teach a beginners’ or more advanced digital photography class that covers your camera, lens, and photographic composition. You will learn how to choose options and menu settings to obtain the best professional result from your camera and lens.

Photoshop class: I also teach photographic post-production using Photoshop, Lightroom, or DxO PhotoLab Elite.

Photoshop for graphic arts and design: Additionally, I teach the use of Photoshop for graphic arts at a beginners’ level. So if you wish to use Photoshop to produce visual aids for marketing, I can certainly get you started.

For the camera class, I often meet students at a coffee shop in downtown Bakersfield. But I have met students in lawyer’s offices, homes, and businesses. All classes are confidential. No private information is ever released. Camera or Photoshop classes cost $200 for one session lasting about four to five hours. Please pay when class begins. I need to know the make and model of your camera and lens. Bring a pen & notepad, camera, fully charged battery, memory card, and your favorite lenses to class. Sorry, I cannot split this into two sessions or mix classes.
