Just had to share this, it’s really just amazing–particularly for anyone that’s knows me :).
Well, it’s been a few months since I’ve posted anything here, but for very good reason–I launched a new company!
Focus Point Central is an online Photography and Videography resource center for anybody and everybody. We have content for beginners to pros from some of the most amazing and prominent professionals out there–and that list is growing every day! We’ve also teamed up with some great partners like Westcott, Lensbaby, The Slanted Lens and more. We truly believe that there is something for everybody: we have Workshops which will be in person and live online; On Demand where you can find piles of free and paid content–everything from quick tip videos to written tutorials–all to learn at your own pace and on your own time; and a Marketplace where we’ll be offering things like books and DVDs from our instructors. Coming soon: Memberships where you’ll be able to sign up to get access to premium content and discounts across our site.
I’d like to personally invite you to visit FocusPointCentral.com with the hopes that you’ll learn from these amazing photographers and videographers. And as always, if you have suggestions on content you’d like to see or workshops you’d like us to offer please don’t hesitate to let us know!
Been messing around a bit with Apple’s new Final Cut Pro X? Also been playing with shooting more video? Well one thing that can easily separate the ‘men from the boys’ is knowing about color grading. Color grading is not just correcting bad color or changing colors here and there–it’s SO much more and can really step up your game if done correctly. FCPX’s new color correction features are amazing and can do a lot. The tricky part might be learning it right the first time and not having to piece together an education. This is where Color Grading Central comes in.
I stumbled across this website and proceeded to fall in love! Not only is the content incredibly informative, but is laid out and presented in a structured, easy-to-learn way. I find a lot of online instruction to be boring, too long, and incredibly disorganized. The folks at Color Grading Central have all of this really dialed in–oh, and the 15 part series is FREE! Here’s the link to the entire series: FCPX Grading Tutorials
Here’s the first video in the series–all VERY interesting!
