Be Still - Fifty Two FAQ's

I only have Elements? Will this class work for me?

Be Still is much more than processing. I hope it will inspire you to make your own still-life photos.... at the same time learning new tips and techniques along the way. 

Lessons will vary, from camera tips, prop talk, shoot styling, processing and more. It's much more than an editing course.

In fact, you could use your smart phone or point and shoot if you wish..... This is all about taking time to create beautiful still-life photos.....

I will however, perform the editing lessons in Lightroom. If I add texture or type I will move into Photoshop/Elements.

If you have full photoshop you could follow along in ACR. If you have Elements, you can use the lighter version of ACR  then move into elements to add your own touches. Or maybe you will make art....strictly with your smart phone.

This class is much more about the art and pro-cess of Still-Life......Photography.

Do you have a lesson outline?

I do not have a year long outline for this class. As an artist first/teacher I find a year long course works best if I build it as I go......

This course is different than a strictly technical course.

Consider this.... a year long.....still-life journey.....

We will begin by taking time in stillness.....finding space to create, looking for light, gathering props, still-life tips and techniques.... both in camera and post.....

Lessons will vary ....from reflections on finding quiet, prop talk, shoot styling, community connection, sharing, processing tips and more....
