Lightroom Techniques (PC & Mac)

Learn Lightroom Techniques

Comprehensive workshops in 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.

Designed specifically for digital photographers, these programs offer powerful non-destructive editing features to import, sort, organize and enhance Raw and Jpeg images easily. The benefit of non-destructive means that your original photos are protected even with Jpeg files, keeping your original images intact!

Lightroom Techniques workshops are for photographers (PC or Mac) who want to gain an understanding of Adobe Lightroom techniques and tools so they can spend less time at the computer and more time behind the lens.

Lightroom is quite simply THE best program for photo editing and management. And to get the most from Lightroom’s powerful capabilities, you need to have a solid understanding of all of Lightroom Tools and Modules. Learn Lightroom Techniques is a four part program that equips you with concrete fundamental knowledge as we work our way through an established workflow.  This dynamic four part program is suitable for both beginners and more experienced users of this powerful, exciting software. Read on for info about program outlines and plan to join us in February to take your Lightroom experience to a whole new level.
