Event description

Description

You will choose November 14th OR November 15th for this workshop. All participants will meet on November 18th.

I am offering Lightroom CC image file management and photo editing training in a two-day intensive workshop that will take you from simply starting out with Lightroom to confidently managing and editing your images. My step by step workflow is easy to understand and will give you the tools to make the best of your photography. I project the class content on my own nine foot wide, high-resolution screen to best guide you in all aspects of this course.

The images you take with your camera are similar to undeveloped film, and your best work isn’t shown until once you’ve developed the photo. You are only half done when you shoot your photo in camera! Lightroom is a play on words from the old film developing ‘darkroom.'

You are required to be using the current version of Lightroom Creative Cloud, which is available as a subscription for $9.99 US$ per month. This photographers software package includes Adobe Photoshop at that price. You will use supplied images to edit/manage during the workshop. Lightroom CC is available as a full function 7-day trial. If you wish to take the course using the trial, please do NOT download the software until closer to the workshop, so you have time after the workshop to evaluate the software once you have completed the class.

Lightroom CC download here: https://lightroom.adobe.com/

Each participant is required to have their own computer. Laptop and desktop computers are welcome as we have the space and the ability to host your desktop if that is your main Lightroom computer. Do not attempt to use a borrowed or sub standard computer to learn Lightroom.

The Lightroom workshop will be broken up into two days, with time allotted for practical editing. Lightroom is an incredibly powerful photo organizer and the full session on day one will be spent on making sure you can import, store, manage and FIND your photos as your catalogue grows over the years.

The workshop is broken up into a four-hour session on 'either' November 14th or November 15th, 2017. Each of these first classes will have 8 participants; then we will all convene together (16 participants in class) on Saturday, November 18th for an eight-hour session of photo editing instruction and practice.

Day 1 (Tuesday, November 14th or Wednesday, November 15th) will focus on Lightroom's powerful file management and the software navigation.
