Lightroom was first developed to be an organizational tool for photographers above all else, and boy does it do this well. Organization is Lightroom’s least “sexy” feature and most people are not even considering this aspect of Lightroom when they decide to buy it. Their minds will soon change. Once you learn to use the full potential of the easy to use import, keywording, ranking and culling tools you will wonder how you ever enjoyed photography without it.
Ever wonder how two photos of the exact same subject can look so different? Is one photographer that much better a photographer than another? Well, often yes this is the case, but not always! Sometimes they are just very skilled at their post production techniques.
This portion of our workshop will teach you how to make the very most of the photographs you take though the powerful development and enhancement processes provided in Lightroom.
Photo enhancement (global and local adjustments)
Basic global tools
Targeted local adjustment tools
Working with color
Camera and Lens management
So now you’ve been educated on how to manage your photos and make them look great. Next thing you probably want to do is share all this great photography with friends, family & whomever else will look.
This portion of the workshop introduces you to Lightroom tools allowing you to easily and professionally publish your images. From producing better prints to sharing via email to automated online publishing in venues like Facebook, Flickr and Google+.
IMPORTANT! everyone’s computer systems are different. Due to our limited time we will not be diving into getting lightroom up and running on your computer NOR organizing files within your own computer’s file system. You must arrive to class with Lightroom already installed on your computer.
If you need help with things like installation and file management on your computer you should call and see about getting a private lesson instead.
