Hybrid How-To: Photo+Video+Audio=Profit

Join Suzette Allen, leading digital educator, and learn how to gracefully [and painlessly] integrate video into your Portrait products by creating eProducts that clients love! No, we are not becoming videographers! We are sticking with our strong suit (still portraits) and adding a bit of video to give it a new life and sizzle! Hop on the Hybrid train and learn before you are running frantically after it, trying to catch up later! Our world is going video and we can do it too, with eProducts, while we still capture beautiful portraits like we always have—but now, with so much more emotion and impact!

Class requires a camera with HD video capability; any DSLR or Mirrorless camera. Also bring a laptop for eProduct creation.

Hybrid Class Requirements

Computer with Photoshop C6 or CC and Lightroom 4 or 5 loaded and ready to go.

Trial version is fine as long as you are still in the 30 day window.

You should also have at least 10 gigs of free space on your internal hard drive.

DSLR or DSLM that will shoot stills and video. We will have a few Panasonic Lumix cameras if your camera will not shoot video.

Be sure to bring your CF/SD cards and a card reader. If you have a tripod, bring it, and don't forget the mounting plate. A monopod will work, but tripod is better.

If you have rig, slide, bracket, brace, mic or any other peripheral “stuff”, feel free to bring it along.

One of the class assignments is to shoot a “Talking Business Card”. We will be using classmates for this project, so if you like, bring a “professional” change of clothes from the waist up.

We will have a small studio set and weather permitting will shoot outside.
