Almost Free Workshop on Video and Photoshop CS6 in NYC

psvidadwork

I've got a "free workshop" at Adorama on January 27, 2013. Sign up HERE.
It costs $25 to hold your spot (seating limited) but you get a full refund by way of a $25 gift card for the store (which you can sip at before or after the class).

Get Started Editing Video with Adobe Photoshop CS6

Sunday, January 27, 2013 | 12:30PM - 4:30PM
Event location: The Adorama Building, 42 West 18th Street 5th Floor


Event Description:
With the release of Photoshop CS6, Adobe introduced the ability to edit video footage. Come along with AdoramaTV's Richard Harrington as he guides you through this brand-new workflow, from building a sequence to working with audio and exporting your video in a variety of high-quality formats.

Learn how Photoshop’s strongest feature, its image enhancement toolset, translates over to video, from fixing under or overexposed footage, performing color balancing, and adding vibrance and contrast to special effects, such as converting to black and white, and using Smart Filters to soften skin.

Topics to be discussed include:
  • Understanding the video file formats supported in Photoshop
  • Controlling playback in the Timeline
  • Building a sequence
  • Organizing and editing A-roll and B-roll footage
  • Adding transitions, adjusting volume, adding music
  • Color balancing a shot, adjusting contrast
  • Adding a lower-third graphic and animating text
  • Exporting to H.264 or QuickTime

Requirements:
Skill level: Intermediate

You should be comfortable with and have a working knowledge of Adobe Photoshop (no beginners please), but a novice with video is okay.
Bring your own laptop (can be Mac or PC) if you want to follow along, and make sure it is fully charged as there won't be enough wall outlets for charging.
Please make sure to bring headphones to listen to audio through your computer if you intend to edit along with Richard—this is a must. Install Photoshop CS6 or load the 30-day demo prior to class.
Practice footage that will be used during the class will be provided to registered attendees through an email with a download link—this will be sent to the email you register with a few days before the event, please make sure and check for it and download it before the event.

A DSLR Video Workshop in Iceland

focus-570x472


I really hope some of you can attend this great workshop I am teaching with Vincent Laforet and RC Concepcion called “A Story In Motion”

“…This workshop is the first of its kind. A comprehensive look at all things to do with motion storytelling. If you thought that a single image can move a person, imagine what a few moments in video can do. This workshop is not about button pushing and camera settings (though you’ll get plenty of technical expertise). You’ll learn how to create compelling video that captures both stories of Iceland’s people and enthralling footage to illustrate the story.”


If you’re interested, feel free to click on the picture above or click on this link.
Im absolutely excited that you’d want to join us.  I could not think of a more beautiful place to record videos and stills – this trip will be the most memorable!!

Everywhere you turn, you're seeing the use of DSLR video cameras... music videos, commercials, television shows. But getting ready for a DSLR shoot presents all sorts of new challenges. Whether it's choosing the right lenses or knowing how many lights to pack, or even how to edit the footage once you've shot it... the rules have changed. The old adage "With new technology comes a need for new workflows" holds especially true.

Whether its strategies for alternate storage, multi-camera productions, or sync sound audio... there are important considerations with DSLR cameras. Things get even trickier when it comes to post-production. Learn how to conform your media to common editing formats as well as native editing workflows. This class tackles DSLR video from preproduction to post and will help you avoid and solve costly problems.

Join Richard Harrington, author of
From Still to Motion: A photographer's guide to creating video with your DSLR, and Creating DSLR Video: From Snapshots to Great Shots, as he helps you explore develop professional skills.

In this workshop Rich will show you how to:
  • How to shoot in manual mode for total control
  • How to work with the exposure triangle for perfect exposure and focus
  • Select the right lenses and for several shooting situations
  • Choose the right equipment for a stable shot and even put the camera into motion
  • Capture great audio with a professional sync sound workflow
  • Organize your media for editing with Adobe Bridge
  • Perform essential editing using Adobe Premiere Pro
  • Fix exposure problems Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Photoshop
  • Remove Lens Distortion and Rolling Shutter with Adobe After Effects
  • Publish to the web and Blu-ray disc with Adobe Media Encoder

Avoid Import Blues for After Effects

It’s very common to use Photoshop and Illustrator to prepare content for import into Adobe After Effects. Here are some practical tips to avoid problems when merging the software.

Import Tips

  • Double-Click in the AE Project Window
  • Shift-Click Multiple Items
  • Organize in Folder and Option+Drag (Alt+Drag) from Desktop
  • Keep file names less than 27 characters long

Photoshop

  • Assign unique names to each layer
  • Avoid using layer sets unless you want the layers to come in as a nested composition
  • If layers are not needed, reduce your render burden by importing as a flattened file such as a PICT, TIFF or TARGA
  • If you have applied an adjustment layer in Photoshop such as Levels, consider applying the effect directly to the individual layers in Photoshop instead

Illustrator

  • Be sure to use layers in Adobe Illustrator to split up elements
  • Change AI preferences to use AICB format (not PDF) for proper Copy/Paste

Great New Laptop Cases

I'm always on the lookout for a new laptop case. While at MacWorld I came across a great bag for Macintosh laptops. Behold the glovez case from case-mate. On the inside its pretty standard, a well-constructed neoprene case. On the outside its very different. The case is wrapped in a perforated nylon exterior that makes it easy to grip and hard to drop. It also has two velcro closures to help keep it under wraps.

The cases are sized to fit all models of Mac laptops perfectly... in fact its a very snug fit and offers peace of mind that the laptop is well-protected. You can choose from four colors: Mocha, Silver, Red, and Black. The cases are very reasonably
priced – $24.95 to $29.95 which seems plenty reasonable. I've been plenty happy with it and invite you to check them out.

If You're an Experienced Video Editor... Check Out this Event

One of the most influential events I've ever attended was Avid's Master Editor Workshop series. But it appears that the workshop has gone the way of Umatic tape machines. The replacement?

The event runs for 5 days and 4 nights, and is open to approximately 75 qualified applicants. The Retreat’s focus focusses on high-end technical sessions and ‘the world behind the timeline’ – the creativity and the craft of the editor. Other classes delve into the business side as well.
