Lightroom is the essential software tool for any serious photographer. Come and learn the fundamentals of this incredibly powerful tool that many professionals have come to rely on.
Adobe Certified Expert, Kathy Tarantola, will help guide you through the basics. This workshop will thoroughly cover the Library and Develop modules where you manage, keyword, edit and enhance your images. With hands-on practice, learn how to quickly and easily import, organize, edit, rate, and enhance your images, and how to work through large shoots efficiently with synchronized settings and presets. We will discuss how Photoshop will fit into your workflow, and learn how to move between Lightroom and Photoshop easily.
Kathy will take several images through the entire Develop workflow, reviewing tools along the way. Topics emphasized will be based on student needs. You will have time to practice with your own images, ask questions, and get feedback on your work.
