I am about to take a trip around the world and as a anniversary gift, my wife bought me a Sony a7RII camera. It is beautiful, but I needed some quick instruction not only on how to use the camera, but also how to take great photos. Philip met me at a local Starbucks and in 2 hours gave me an incredible amount of pertinent information and we went over some specific shots that we knew I would be taking while on my trip. His insight on how to teach someone the basics and several more advanced topics in such a short amount of time was exactly what I needed. I highly recommend Philip not only for his breadth of knowledge, but for his understand of the situation I was in and filtering his years of skill into a very short amount of time.
I very much enjoyed this course. I feel that I gained many useful tools and approaches for use in my studio room. We worked on converting music files, importing media into Movie Maker, and added media to music. I will add transitions and effects during the week. We will work on titles, captions and burning the project to DVD at the next session.
I reviewed how to convert music format to MP3, how to import media into a project, adding music, photos, effects and transitions. I will work on improvements to the video project during the week. I will work on a review next week, then add titles and captions, and finally export the project to a DVD.
Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge with us.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I received my BA in Photo-Illustration from Brooks Institute with a heavy concentration on studio portraiture. I am very good at complex lighting situations with studio strobes or hot lights. I taught Portrait/Commercial Photography at Clover Park Technical College and a few of my students continue to work as professional students today.
As a video producer, I have worked in all phases of video production: lighting, audio, editing (linear and nonlinear), graphics and animation, writing, and directing. My experience includes BetaSP, mini DV and HDV formats. My primary applications used are PhotoShop, After Effects, Avid Composer, Chyron Lyric, and SCALA.
