Lightroom Bootcamp!

Learn Editing Techniques (PC & Mac)

Comprehensive workshops in Raw image editing workflow for Adobe Lightroom!

This is an info packed, hands-on photo management and image editing digital workflow classes using Adobe Lightroom for professional and enthusiast photographers.

Digital photography is more than just capturing images in the camera; it is also about editing, enhancing and show casing them on websites such as Flickr, slideshows, iPad /iPhone, Tablets, or in print such as photo books or framed fine art prints. While Adobe Photoshop has long been the main choice and only real option for editing digital photographs, many photographers (professional and enthusiasts) are now using faster and more streamlined RAW editing software such as Lightroom or Aperture.
