Adobe Lightroom was introduced in 2007 and quickly became the industry standard for editing RAW files. It is also the key to a streamlined digital workflow. We are delighted to have Adrian Beasley on board to teach this one day introductory Lightroom course. Adrian has been teaching photography for 15 years and digital editing for 10 years with the UK’s leading photo tours company. Adrian has a deep understanding of the software with a patient and engaging teaching style. Rachael will also be on hand to lend her advice and experience.
In the morning, you will learn all the elements of the Library module to enable you to import, organise, search and export your images. We will show you from start to finish how to organise your images efficiently. You will learn how the various features of the Library module work together with the aim of being able to find your favourite images in the fastest possible way.
The afternoon is devoted to Lightroom's Develop module. We will teach you how to develop your own RAW images, taking complete control of your photographs. We will explore every aspect of the Develop module, including adjusting white balance, cropping, adjusting exposure, tonal alterations, mastering shadows and highlights, handling noise, using the adjustment brush, cloning, healing, and sharpening. Your post processing workflow will gain a streamlined approach and you will be amazed at what can be achieved in Lightroom without ever having to open Photoshop.
The course comes with a supporting booklet so you can concentrate on doing the practical steps in class and scribble notes to follow when you get home.
What you will need
This is a hands-on workshop where you will learn by doing so you will need to bring your own computer with Lightroom already installed. Ideally you will bring a laptop, but your desktop can be accommodated with prior notice. If you don’t already have Lightroom, please download the 30-day trial version shortly before the course. You should be reasonably confident in using your computer so we avoid too many IT issues. You don’t need to have used Lightroom before but you will need a copy on your computer on the day.
If you are already using Lightroom confidently and feel you are beyond a beginner, do get in touch as we have plans for an intermediate course aimed at you!
The cost of this workshop is £185 including a 60-page workbook, 8GB memory stick with example images, coffee, tea and biscuits on arrival and at breaks during the day and a sandwich lunch.
