Dubinsky is featured in “Pro Tip,” an MATC how-to series. In the series, the college’s expert instructors explain simple yet important life tasks, helping viewers increase their knowledge and perhaps consider taking courses at MATC.

In the first installment, “How to Carve a Turkey,” released in November, Culinary Arts instructor Bryan Quinn demonstrated how to carve and present a Thanksgiving turkey that would dazzle family and friends. 

In the new episode of the series, Dubinsky, who earned an associate degree in Photography at MATC and joined the faculty in 2019, explains how to create better photos by:

  •     Lighting subjects properly. 
  •     Positioning yourself in the right spot.
  •     Posing your subjects in the best way.
