You know the basics of Lightroom but know there is still more that you can get from Lightroom. I show you insights into advanced image processing that will make your photos like they were made by a professional. You’ll learn how to visualize how photos can be improved, even while you are taking the shot, which is where it all begins.
We start with a few things in the Library module that can save you a ton of time but we spend most of the seminar working in the Develop module where the real magic happens.
I use my photos to show you how I make images look like what I saw in the field, which isn’t what you get in the RAW files cameras capture. All photos need some amount of work, some more than others. It could be just adding some black to make the image pop or it could be a good deal of work to make the sky look the way it did when you made the picture. Lightroom is the easiest, fastest and one of the best ways to bring the most out of your photos.
Some photographers think Lightroom only makes a difference for landscape or nature photos, but I show you how to improve your people pictures too. There is a lot more than just making colors pop, I show you how to get skin tones right so your prints look great.
I demonstrate with Lightroom Classic and it doesn’t matter whether you work on a Mac or Windows. We cover a lot of material and you’ll be able to download a list of my favorites Lightroom keyboard shortcuts plus all the shortcuts.
