Also available in this course: The use of layer tools and text options; flier and marketing tools and design; how to create for the web and email...and more.

Literature

As an award winning spoken word artist and performance poet, instructor of poetry at Temple University's PASCEP Program, I will assist students who wish to perform, publish or record their work and release into the public domain. 

I have been writing for over 40 years and performing for over 20 years and during this course, I will offer performance and writing instruction that involves proper structure, word placement and use. 

We will review the variations of alliteration and the use devices and styles and the differences and similarities of both, the various types of metaphors and suggested readings and venues to participate in.

We will read, write and discuss various bodies of work, as well as the pros and cons of publishing and promoting your work online (social networks) and how to protect your work BEFORE it goes into the public domain. 

Other areas of study include, but are not limited to stage presence, confidence, reading from paper; promotions techniques and methods; memorization and eye contact, performance and breathing techniques, competitions (SLAMS) and touring contracts.

This course will assist those who wish to become an event or concert photographer, no previous experience is necessary, but a commitment to improve, learn, grow and experience event photography is a must. We will discuss the process of protecting your work through copyrights and explain the importance of such, as well as the myths and rumors of such. I will also demonstrate how and why contracts should be used, how to set up a basic and detailed contract agreement to protect your work and determine a price and fee schedule to be compensated fairly.

We will practice basic shooting and focusing techniques indoors and out with live and inanimate subjects. Some studio work will be covered to demonstrate lighting techniques and positioning.
