Advanced Lightroom workshop

This three-hour advanced Lightroom class is for photographers who have some experience with Lightroom but seek to improve their images and workflow.

You know the basics of Lightroom but know there is still more that you can get from Lightroom. I’ll 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.

Toward Camel's HumpWe’ll start with a few things in the Library module that can save you a ton of time but we’ll spend most of the seminar working in the Develop module where the real magic happens.

I will use many of 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 looks the way it did when you made the picture. Lightroom is the easiest, fastest and best way to get the most out of your photos.

I’ll be demonstrating with the latest version of Lightroom Classic CC but most things will be applicable to all versions whether you work on a Mac or Windows. We will cover a lot of material but I’ll have handouts that help you remember what we talk about and your photos will look better the next time you use Lightroom.
