There are 52 labs (fun, creative learning experiments) organized into 6 units. Each lab is on a two page spread, so you don't have to turn the page to view the whole exercise (love that). And Bonus - You can use your DSLR, your PAS or your smart phone!
Each lab contains:
A short materials list (for the mixed media projects) or a "settings to use" for your camera.
Short and to the point instructions with stunning visuals.
Quotes that are relevant to the lab exercises, from Jerry Seinfeld to Mark Twain.
Gobs of tips, tricks and techniques to try, things that I never would have thought of.
Each unit ends with a mixed media project by Steve's wife, Carla. Carla Sonheim is the author of "Drawing Lab for Mixed-Media Artists", another book I have and highly recommend.
Some of the things I have learned so far:
Lab #33 - Self Portrait
Instead of his usual Charlie Chaplain or daffy duck avatars, this young man wanted a personal photo that would reflect his interests to use on social media sites. Mission accomplished!
Using information from the introduction and a couple of the labs, I am now taking better photos of my artwork, an unexpected bonus. Thanks, Steve!Amazon
