Birth Photograph Basics - Is Birth Photography for You?

Birth photography is a very rewarding but also a very demanding genre, and not always for everyone. If you'd like to learn more about it to know if it's for you, this is your course.

In this class, we'll learn about the process - from the first contact with the parents, contracts, and questionnaires, and what to expect when you get the call that mom is in labor. We will also talk about equipment and tips for shooting the birth story.

Photography and visual communication for advanced beginners
Photography is a very powerful vehicle, visually and emotionally. In order not to disturb what is important in the image, it is necessary to choose the framing and the colors wisely. Even if it means retouching, reframing afterwards, there is first of all what we want to say and the reflection on the moment, quick and efficient to know. You should not stimulate the eye by too much information, and master the technique. In this, knowing the basics and rudiments for a very effective shot is important.

Actress, model and filmmaker teaches and gives tricks to people who want to start on Photography.
I am an actress, model and filmmaker that have been working in the industry for a couple of years now. I know how hard it can seem to start creating material or how intimidating it can be to grab a camera for the first time and looking at that terrifying "manual" set. As a model, I can teach you how to direct and how to behave with models. As a filmmaker I can teach you about angles, techniques and composition, but mostly I strive to work with you to make you find your own style. I have knowledge in both Photoshop and Illustrator, so we can also work on that editing! My teaching method depends on every student. Depending on the level we are starting at, we will first learn about equipment needed and how to use it, then colour and composition in images, then editing. We can look into Photography and Film history if the student is interested. We will also learn about selling your work, believing in it and creating your own vision.

Cours DIGITAL MARKETING: Le marketing digital regroupe tous les outils interactifs digitaux pour promouvoir les produits et services
Le marketing digital regroupe tous les outils interactifs digitaux pour promouvoir les produits et services dans le cadre de relations personnalisées et directes avec les consommateurs. Il concerne tous les points de contacts digitaux : Internet, Smartphones, tablettes… Son développement est porté par les usages qui se modifient : multi écran et multi tâches ; la consommation de média se démultiplie et se complexifie aussi. Il est donc temps de faire le point sur les formes du marketing digital et sur les modifications que l'évolution de celles-ci ont entrainée sur la manière de communiquer des marques. La communication digitale couvre des objectifs de notoriété et d'image (branding) mais aussi de performance (vente et enrichissement de base de données). De nouveaux canaux s'imposent comme le search dans les moteurs de recherche (permettant un ciblage plus pertinent, une insertion dans le parcours client) et le display (publicité sous forme comme les bannières, pavé, etc..). Ces outils de communication permettent aux marques de générer de nouveaux contacts, d'être plus en affinité avec leur cible. Au sein de ces nouvelles actions de communication digitale, les réseaux sociaux représentent la nouvelle priorité des directions marketing qui doivent apprendre à les connaître, à mieux les appréhender pour mieux les contrôler et les intégrer dans leurs dispositifs de communication. Le marketing digital facilite et favorise la mise en place du marketing participatif, lequel amplifie les phénomènes de diffusion de l’information et contribue à transformer le bouche à oreille en marketing viral contrôlé plus ou moins par les marques. Le marketing digital surpasse les autres formes de marketing sur le plan du ciblage en permettant de combiner de multiples critères de sélection des acheteurs potentiels. D’ailleurs, les outils de ciblage utilisés sont souvent à la frontière de la légalité mais aussi tout simplement du respect de la vie privée des internautes. Les outils du marketing digital grâce à leurs nouvelles formes sont plus performants, plus impliquant. Ils conduisent les annonceurs à être très attentifs au retour sur investissement (ROI) des sommes investies. Cette attitude ROIste est facilitée par le développement et la mise en place d’indicateurs de mesure.
