Hannah who is a recent graduate of Baptist Bible College and doing short term missionary work already was looking to have opportunity to do missions and learn how to put a multimedia package together by herself.

Hannah took on a difficult assignment of working with a lady who had been a prostitute and is now working with prostitutes trying to help them off the streets. She couldn't show the prostitutes faces and had to find creative ways to create b-roll for her project.

Using music and some creative photography she put together a great project. Take a look at it here.

Hannah was using many different techniques of creating a mood. She was adjusting exposure on her photos to be sure she was capturing that night atmosphere of the women working on the streets. Picking music that fit the piece was also difficult.

I think she did a great job and can't wait to see her next project.

If you think you are ready to learn to put it all together and want to learn how to do multimedia, then send me a note so you are on my email list. I will be shortly putting up my workshops for next year. Here is my email
