Hello Everyone, :)

 

In the last couple of weeks I shared in the Forum different topics related to video tutorials I upload to my YouTube channel. To make it more practical, I'm gonna share them and new ones in just this topic. Feel free to scroll down and find all the videos I already uploaded.

If you want to know a bit more about me and what to expect, then keep reading.

 

Photography (and design) is part of my life for more than twenty years. I began working in the advertising industry in the 90's and from there I covered many different areas from the creative process to production. Today I mainly do portrait photography, fine art, special assignments and some design projects.

 

In the last years and as a certified trainer, I began to share what I've learned and continue to learn in workshops. I mainly cover Portrait Photography, Black & White, Digital Workflow and Retouching. For the love of sharing my passion about photography, I decided to start making video tutorials and this is the reason I end up here. The amazing software the Affinity Team made gave me the enthusiasm we normally have when we get a new toy. For me it's been a fantastic experience and discovery of new ways of doing the same things in a different, and many times better, way. And this experience is what I want to share with you.

 

This is also the reason I'm going to cover more the Affinity apps in a photography scenario. But you can expect more, a lot more... I'll also be covering photographic tips and techniques and other software that I find relevant to my/our work. This is the case of Capture One Pro that will have also a special feature. Apart from this I'm also preparing some "extras" but that's for another time :)

 

What to keep in mind:

Every time I make a tutorial where I create a special resource, like a macro, a brush, a style, etc. I'll share it for free. You just need to follow the video tutorial or blog post to see the download links.

 

Some tutorials also have a related post in my blog with more details. You can check it here: (available in Portuguese and English): http://blog.pedrosoares.photo/

 

The tutorials are made in Portuguese but they have English subtitles. Nevertheless I make them in a very easy to follow pace. For that reason they are suitable for both beginners and advanced users.

 

The list I have for upcoming tutorials is long but if you have a specific topic you would like to be covered just let me know. You never know if your request is my next tutorial. This was the case of the Glow Effect video.

 

I'm going to share them chronological so the new ones will be in the end of this topic.

 

Finally my idea is to share tutorials on a regular basis so feel free to subscribe to my YouTube channel to be the first one to know about it: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxdrAaW4Zr9lYktQmt5O4VA

 

You can also subscribe to my Blog where you can find other topics: http://blog.pedrosoares.photo/

 

Sorry if I made this introduction to long, but it was important for me to share this.

I hope you'll find each tutorial a useful resource and also a source of inspiration.

;)

Hi Pedro,

 

Thanks for doing this. One problem - in your newest tutorial (haven't checked the others) the english subtitles are white on a white background so I can't read them.

Hi EdD,

 

Thanks for the feedback.

Regarding the subtitles, the colour scheme is set by default but the user/viewer can change them. Just go to the Cog icon where you can also set the quality, choose Subtitles, then choose Options and you can change all the options available for the subtitles. I have mine set to white background with black subtitles.

 

Cheers,

Pedro

Hi gdenby,

 

Thank you for letting me know you appreciate it.

I always loved to share my work. Never was that kind of guy full of secrets. When someone asked how I made this photography or how I edit it, I always shared my technique. I believe doing so I also learn and most important, growth as a person and as a professional. This is the reason part of my work is teaching.

I share with you a thought of Ben Sweetland that sums this believe of mine.

"We cannot hold a torch to light another's path without brightening our own."

 

P.S. - I can only say if you liked so far, just wait to see the exciting tutorials (and more) I'm preparing to share...

 

Cheers,

Pedro
