First off, your awesome for taking the time to read this! I assume you're having trouble with Python code/programming. I know the feeling, I understand that coding in Python can be freighting and often times intimidating, but that can change for the better. Just like learning anything new Python can seem as confusing as a puzzle for you, but with my R.R.F strategy we'll break down each coding piece to fully understand it, and then put those pieces back together to see the whole picture of how the concepts work together. No matter what you want to do with Python, whether it be improving your skills as a programmer or getting better grades in class. I am here to get you there.

I am here for you. to help you improve, reach your goals and further your education so that you may succeed. your success is important. I'm really hyped! Can't wait to speak with you and get the ball rolling!

I have been receiving a lot of emails from people asking where to start with learning DSLR video. This guide is my answer to those interested in getting started. This is also the process that got me started.
Before you fully commit to shooting video with DSLRs, you should ask yourself why. Is it because you want more manual control, Lens selection, or because DSLR are hot? If you answer with the latter you are in for a painful, disappointing reality. While DSLRs seem to be the bee’s knees, you will quickly find them to demand a whole other level of discipline you aren't ready, or want to engage in.
But if you are interested in more manual control and options to refine your footage, have a learners attitude, and are willing to work with the cons of shooting DSLR, your ready to jump in.
The first class/introduction include choosing a DSLR, learn the camera, learn about Cinematography,Figure out what you NEED, Practice Practice Practice,Ask for Critiquing and Learn more...
But if ...

Kelvin was an incredible teacher! He somehow made the very technical art of origami a bit easier to digest and do on our own from home. He was supportive and cheering us on, and his passion for origami was extremely evident. We can't wait to work with him again. Thanks, Kelvin!

I have been working with Photoshop for over 5 years. Getting started with this program is as easy as understanding layers. Once you understand the basics of Photoshop, we can move on to more functions and tools inside the program. You will learn about file sizes, image types, color correcting, and editing "tricks". Some of my students personal favorite lessons include "basic compositing", "creating reflections" and "changing the background". Once you have a solid understanding of the basic tools, you can start to explore; and let your creativity take you wherever you want. My lessons are paced based on your learning style and speed, and are geared towards a stress-free experience. I will show you the ins and outs of creating digital art with this exciting program. The possibilities are endless!

Please note, I am not a graphic designer. I teach Photoshop for primarily image editing purposes. Logos and graphic illustrations is not my forté.

NOTE: I teach Adobe Photoshop CS5, CS6, ...

I’m a Senior Front End Developer and have worked extensively with Jp on multiple projects. He was always organized and had a well thought out plan whenever designing or developing a project. I hope to work with him again in the future and definitely recommend him for anyone who really wants to learn.
John
I can say without a doubt that JP was a main driver when it came to our teams ability to stay ahead of the game when it came to meeting deadlines. He is an extremely talented programmer with knowledge that many would envy about the industry and software development.
RAHAT
He is a good guy and told me some good recommended what should I do next time for this class.

But meanwhile, the main reason I paid him he wasn't able to do it. Yet he was counting his time while he should have thought about what he did for the amount of money I paid him. Before the lesson, I pick with him I told him what he needs to do for me. He said he is definitely able to do what I'm asking for. But at the end he didn't do not all of them but also whatever he did was a couple of them were wrong. Never taking any lessons with TAKELESSONS. Waste of my money.
