    I am so looking forward to beginning this class, I am however using/learning photoshop cs5 I am not too sure how it differs from cs4 or pse9.

    Do you think it would be to much if I was taking another class at the same time? I work primarily in CS5 I never use elements anymore since I bought CS, but I do have LR3 and I have NO idea how to use it. I get frustrated and stop them just finish with CS. Will you be going over LR3 and the presets etc? Are you also going to be talking/teaching about reflectors? Will you give constructive criticism as well? Sorry i have so many questions but I really want to take my photography to the next level.

    Hi Jim,

    Busy guy you are! Love your candid talk and simple explanations. Will you do a class on studio shooting sometime? Would you include post production with PS Elements 9?

    I am stuck in the dark with product (jewelry) photography for the web. New Canon SLR and EF 28-135 close up lens has my creative juices flowing… Just need some help to step up. Thank you!

    @Jamie – Yes, yes and yes. Yes, I will discuss Photoshop, Lightroom, and Photoshop Elements for post-processing. Yes, I will talk quite a bit about reflectors. Yes, I will be giving constructive criticism. :-) Hope you’re able to join us for the class.

    @Rowena King – I haven’t yet upgraded from CS4 to CS5, but it is highly doubtful that you’ll even notice. The two versions are only VERY SLIGHTLY different. I’ll show how to do things in Photoshop, Lightroom, and PSE.

    @Bala – this is a “learn on your own time” class. We’ll do a few live sessions of about 45 minutes in length, but the rest of the content will be available on demand. Also, we’ll have weekly assignments if you choose to participate with them.

    @Glen MCQ – All you need is a computer with an internet connection, ANY DSLR, and a lens. That’s it!
