Learn Photography: Autofocus

Lynda.com - Thu, 04/07/2016 - 20:00
Authored By: Tim Grey

Released On: 4/8/2016

Focus is a core photographic concept. Autofocus makes the job easier. But behind this simple concept is an array of technical considerations and creative options. Which one of your camera's autofocus modes will give you the best results for specific shooting scenarios? When should you take control and manually focus? And do you want everything in the frame in focus, or just your subject?

Photographer and educator Tim Grey explores these questions and more in this exploration of focus and autofocus. And because sharpness isn't everything, Tim also details scenarios where blur can have more impact.


Producing Electronic Music in Logic Pro

Lynda.com - Thu, 04/07/2016 - 20:00
Authored By: Nate Mars

Released On: 4/8/2016

Electronic music is an umbrella term for a wide variety of genres and sounds, from ambient, dub, acid house, trap, drum and bass, dubstep, and more. But whatever style you produce, Logic Pro can handle it. This powerful DAW is uniquely suited to capturing your creativity and expressing your sonic ideas. In this course, author Nate Mars shows you the core techniques professionals use to produce electronic music in Logic Pro.

He starts with building the foundation of the track—the drums. He shows how to program beats in Ultrabeat, utilize your own samples, and create drumbeats for a variety of genres. He then moves into creating basslines for house, trap, dubstep, and other genres, and getting a great deep sub-bass sound. He next moves into creating lead synth sounds, starting with Logic Pro's built-in Alchemy and Retro synths. He also goes into using samples, adding sound effects, and utilizing Apple's factory content. Then he pulls it all together and demonstrates ways to arrange the tracks, use creative effects, mix the tracks together, and use automation to finalize the mix. Chapter 6 covers sending your MIDI note and clock data to external synths from Logic Pro X—a fun way to experiment with analog sounds.


Strict Data Types in PHP

Lynda.com - Wed, 04/06/2016 - 20:00
Authored By: David Powers

Released On: 4/7/2016

One of the most important (and controversial) new features in PHP 7 is the option to use strict data types, in the form of parameter and return type declarations. Strict typing helps eliminate errors in more complex applications. Its use remains optional though, as many consider it a betrayal of the fundamental principles of a loosely typed language like PHP. In this course, David Powers explores the pros and cons of strict data types in PHP 5 and PHP 7.

First, he introduces the basics of type juggling and type casting in PHP. Then, he reviews strict typing with objects, arrays, and callback functions, which were introduced in PHP 5. He also reviews scalar type hints in PHP 7, which can have unexpected side effects for unwary developers. David concludes with a frank assessment of the practicalities of strict typing, and a simple recommendation that will help most developers use the new feature: define in strict and execute in weak.

Authored By: Ben Bishop

Released On: 4/7/2016

Things are rarely black and white when it comes to today's superheroes and super villains. Modern-day characters are complex. Comic book artists use color and atmospheric backdrops to make their personalities shine through. But it's hard to get black-and-white drawings to look like the comics that end up on store shelves. Learn the secrets to bringing your own comic book characters to life with engaging color and beautiful backgrounds, in this course from comic creator Ben Bishop.

Ben takes the characters he created in Drawing Good and Evil Comic Book Characters and adds color, subtle shading, and simple environments with Photoshop. He shows how to prep your illustration and perform color flatting—simple color fills that save professional artists a lot of time. Along the way, Ben explains how to choose and apply color that feels authentic to the characters and environments you are developing.
