Using Art Effectively to Teach the Toughest Topics in A&P
Fundamentals of Anatomy & Physiology helps students succeed in the challenging A&P course with an easy-to-understand narrative, precise visuals, and steadfast accuracy.

You’ll learn step by step how to set up Lightroom on your desktop and mobile device, so that during a shoot, you can hand your client your tablet and not only can they see the images coming in live as you shoot, they can make their own Picks, comments, and even share the link with someone at a different location, so they can be part of the shoot, and the approval process, too!
