Here's what I'll cover:

  1. Supplies
  2. Technique
  3. Tips and tricks
  4. Lighting Suggestions
  5. Composition and Styling demos

  7. Two full editing sequences for Mobile
  8. My Pinterest board for inspiration

I hope you'll join me and make a stunning art backdrop (or two!)

I love all of the Tabitha's classes! * She's very natural and relatable on camera * She's incredibly creative * She's a great teacher Tabitha's classes always leave me wanting more! All of Tabitha's classes are highly recommended.
Tabitha is a fun teacher and sparked some creative ideas for me. The one thing that freaked me out was the close proximity of her gorgeous cat the the Liquid Nails she was applying to her board canvas!! Please keep kitties, children, and live things away from Liquid Nails while working with such a product!!
Love this class. Your presentation style is so natural. And,your sound bites are precise, not excessive chattering! One request, could you (at some time) focus some on creating/editing etsy images? Thanks

Really good at waiting in lines

Hi! I'm Tabitha and I teach photography classes. I'm a lifestyle portrait photographer for a living and I make that living in the gorgeous state of Utah! I love plants and I knit and I had my appendix removed in 2014 and sometimes I worry that I might need it later to talk to aliens. Other than that I'm pretty normal.
