In light of the massive number of gear reviews and how-tos on YouTube, I felt like making a short vlog focusing on developing a personal vision. In Part 1, I tell you about some of my own photographic heroes – Sebastio Salgado and Ralph Eugene Meatyard- and how they influenced some of my own work.
I’ve come to the conclusion that instant film is the ideal format for my photography – minimalist, strange, shot with “what you see is what you get” style lighting. These were shot with Fujifilm Instax Mini Monochrome Film – 10 Exposures on my Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic Instant Film Camera, and here’s a little tutorial from my YouTube on how to get the double exposure effect you see in Shasta’s image!
Welcome to another of my video series featuring creative things you can do with instant film! In this video I show you a technique for mark making on both Fuji Instax Mini and Impossible Project film alongside a few examples I shot with models Mckenzie Eckels and Kaila Stone.
If you enjoy this instant film video I encourage you to check out the other ones on my channel!
I have a full class on instant film techniques over on my Skillshare channel.
New year, new Skillshare classes up! “Working With Titles + Credits In Adobe Premiere Pro” is my second new class this year, one of several Adobe Premiere courses I have in the pipeline.
Adobe Premiere Pro is a powerful video editing tool which also allows you the ability to design titles and credit sequences. This class is meant for the beginning video editor or filmmaker who wants to create title/ credit sequences and templates. We’ll also cover some of the design elements that go into an effective placement of text in our videos.
Since my studio opened last month I’ve been able to film more tutorial and gear reviews – I especially enjoy harping on the beloved Fuji Instax Mini film and cameras. Here’s two recent videos covering different aspects of the analogue style!
It’s been close to a year since I started my Skillshare channel and at the time of this writing I’m offering 17 classes, from Photography to Video Editing to Sound Mixing to Ceramics to Illustration. It seems like a variety of things but to me it’s all art, mostly involving pixels and waveforms. When you’ve been doing stuff for a long time, you pick up a number of useful skills, and that’s the overall premise of Skillshare.
The Skillshare site itself encourages people to create bite-sized, project oriented classes that are complete in themselves, which is understandable- I myself check the run time of a class, and if it’s over 45 minutes, no matter how interested I am in the topic, I’ll probably skip it.
I was able to get 5 tutorials up in September, and my goal for the rest of the year is to continue with 1 new class a week. Some classes have been very broad and beginner-level, others- like my Motion Comics series or Design A Character Based On An Ancient Culture– have been very targeted and based on personal projects I’ve been working on.
At this point I want to ask anyone out there: what would you like to see a tutorial on? Basic stuff, m0re photography, more video, sound editing, process videos of someone creating a piece of art? Let me know in the comments below!
