Private lesson on photo editing using darktable software (free equivalent of Lightroom)
This course is intended for people who have never done photo editing or for people wishing to discover a free and open source software to replace Lightroom. I have been doing photography out of passion since 2019. My attraction to the world of free software led me to use darktable, a little known but very powerful software for photo editing. Feel free to contact me for more information.

MEDIA TRAINING WORKSHOPS (TELEVISION AND RADIO)
How to prepare for a media interview? What means should be used to fight his fear of the camera and improve his image? How to present yourself and your project in front of a camera? How to present yourself and your project to the media? Targeted content according to your project: Verbal and / or gestural communication; Seduction of the lens and / or microphone; Improvisation in front of a microphone and / or a camera; Voice & gaze; Games of one or two cameras; Chronic; Animation; Reportage; Direct radio & TV; Interview; Narration; Speech in all its forms (...) In short, several objectives: ◾ Confront your shyness in front of the microphone / camera. ◾ Understand his speech and his diction. ◾ Taming the media environment (radio / tv). ◾ Familiarize yourself with your image and voice. ◾ Manage your speaking time. Through exercises (diction, voice, presence, breathing, presentations, time management, etc.), role plays, interview simulations and familiarization with one's image and voice, the participants move at their own pace in a flexible educational framework. Note that during the videoconference session, all the notes are transcribed in the chat so that you can access them at any time when you wish. Indeed, speaking is a predominantly physical activity, which, while taking care of its image, is based on a body, a voice, a breath, a rhythm (diction) and an emotion (the imagination and the sensations ) reflecting the speaker's involvement in his speech. How to send a clear message? How to make the difference, to make an impression? Knowing how to speak, act and interact in public is almost a necessity today: your public speaking must be effective and efficient with clear, simple and powerful messages. Simple and pragmatic tools will be presented for: generating listening ● making an impression ● fostering confidence ● generating need ● motivating teams by explaining a strategy ● getting messages across within groups ● overcoming shyness by assimilating 3 CRV axes (body-breathing-voice) ● better manage disagreement or conflict. Mastered, the method allows: • improve self-confidence and stress management with the development of the speaker's fluency (verbal-bodily), his public speaking and his sense of repartee and improvisation. • to work on their ease, leadership, charisma, creativity and personal development through scenarios. * improve the characteristics of the spoken voice (timbre, pitches, intention, flow). * get your message across through your image, while gaining improvisation skills and responsiveness. Supplemented by basic exercises (diction, voice, presence, breathing, presentation, time management), role plays, improvisations and simulations. With the key word: pronunciation, diction / articulation, the sense of repartee. Statistically, the progression following these private sessions is quickly noticeable, from 2 sessions. ( study 2020). Trained in Grande Ecole post-preparatory classes & Ivy League university in the United States, specialized and has worked for more than 15 years, in Europe and North America, in the field of communication and public speaking, in renowned international public and private establishments, intervening in forums and conferences, and oriented on pedagogy and careful methodology. - Locations: Geneva - Lausanne - Friborg - Neuchâtel - Montreux - Basel - Sion - Sierre - Morges - Bienne. But currently and until further notice, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of live (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (example: loss of travel time), with additional advantages (example: of notes on the chat, which can be reread afterwards). In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to suit everyone perfectly, take place in a very optimal way and generate a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). That is why, at your request, I continue to offer this option. Take good care of yourself and yours! PROGRAM À la carte program: evaluated and adapted to each need.

Visual Storytelling, From an idea to a script to an AV production
Stories are as old as we are, but if you want to put a story on paper or portray a story, it turns out to be more difficult than talking to your friends. How about now? Not what you tell, but HOW you tell it is the most important. The basics and how to use psychology to write a story, this is what you will learn anyway. Those who want to continue afterwards will learn how to write a script. Fiction or facts, you decide what you want to learn.

L'écriture et la transmission de connaissances sont deux de mes passions et je suis ravie de partager mon savoir avec le sourire et pédagogie. Commenter, corriger, discuter, conseiller et améliorer un travail est une mission que j'adore réaliser. Je considère cet échange comme très riche, tant pour mon élève que pour moi-même.

Photography for Beginners (No camera required) + Q&A
Photography is an art, capturing special moments in a frozen frame. It can be very intimidating to get started, thinking you don't have enough to begin or you aren't sure if it is right for you. No matter what equipment you have or don't have, if you can capture an image, you can capture the magic of any moment. There are transferrable skills between smartphones to major DSLR or mirrorless cameras. I am here to guide you through your journey into photography. I have designed this course to guide you through the daunting technical side, but also provide the tools and ideas to give you creative freedom and capture images in the artistic way you have in mind. I can show you how to use a camera you have, and teach you theoretical concepts on how to evoke a certain feeling and how to capture it, and even the basics of image editing and composition. I am also open to any questions you have throughout the course.

Chinese language learning (Introductory&intermediate&advanced level)
Hello, my name is Jialin and I am from China. I am a filmmaker/content creator based in Riga, Latvia. I would love to invest part of my time in giving Chinese tutoring lesson to those are curious/interested in Chinese language. The class will be taught in English and could cover any topics that you are interested in. I can offer Chinese for beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels (Reading, Speaking, Listening). Or let's discuss your interested topics (Let the learning process be fun)! I believe the best way to learn a language is to speak more. Thus, the class will require extensive speaking in Chinese in order to get yourself be more involved in the language itself. Apart from the class, I would also be willing to communicate through other means to help with the language learning process!
