Make Lightroom your workflow tool!

There are no available registration dates at this time.

Note: This course will be held online using the Zoom platform.
Students will need to have Adobe Lightroom installed on their computer. A free 7-day trial is available here.

Modern digital cameras are incredible tools for capturing vast quantities of images. And suppose you are like many photographers. In that case, you have hundreds, thousands, and perhaps tens of thousands of photos existing on your hard drive, leaving you curious how to keep everything organized. Once organized, the next step is to process the images to their full potential and release your unique vision.

Adobe Lightroom Classic is the right tool for the job. With this single application, you can organize, edit, process, create books and presentations, print, and export to fit various needs. The workshop will follow the path of properly setting up your Lightroom Catalog, import files, organize and edit in the Library Module, and then take a deep dive to unleash the power of the Develop Module where your images come to life. We’ll also review the other modules, so you gain a full understanding of what Lightroom Classic has to offer.

You’ll learn how to process your files in a non-destructive workflow enabling you to edit and re-edit without losing image quality. We’ll address Global adjustments that affect the entire image and Local adjustments to direct the viewer’s gaze better. Whether your preference is color, black and white, or both, we have you covered.

Topics covered in this workshop include:

  • Application Setup and Preferences
  • Importing Files
  • Digital Asset Management
  • Non-destructive Workflow
  • Global Adjustments
  • Local Adjustments
  • Utilizing Presets

We will enjoy a fun and intensive couple of days.
