photography video tutorials by Craftsy

In conjunction with the team at Craftsy, I’ve presented four video tutorials – two on flash photography, and two on wedding photography. They’ve received very good feedback from those who enrolled so far.

These are ideal for photographers who want to learn more but whose time is restricted, and also can’t make it out to New York for a photography workshop. A video tutorial is a great way then to see the material. This is often easier to understand than just reading text. So while it isn’t quite in-person one-on-one tutoring, it is close to that with Craftsy’s interactive platform and well-structered video tutorials. It’s an online workshop on photography!

In addition to the four classes I presented on video, other photographers have also presented online video tutorials on various subjects. These are the other classes that are available at this time. Check them out!

promotion: Dream Strap

Dream Strap – comfy sheep-skin lined camera straps

Dream Straps are sheepskin-lined camera straps that are super-comfy. Just as importantly, is that they are strong, finely crafted, easy to attach and adjustable from 34-58 inches. All the good stuff we expect from camera straps.

Sheepskin fibers provide breathable, luxurious comfort that synthetic materials just can’t match. Weight on your shoulders or neck are eliminated because the weight is more evenly distributed due to the dense for and the width of the strap.

The second video tutorial series in conjunction with Craftsy, is on the topic of: Off-Camera Flash Photography.  Craftsy is a company that produces professional looking online video tutorials, and with their help, we created what is a kind of online workshop. The first class is Portraits with On-Camera Speedlight, and has received great feedback from those who enrolled. This follow-up class is about using Off-Camera Flash and is now available.
