Next class: Tuesdays: Beginning November 12th & 19th 2014 (6pm – 9pm class) Resuming December 3rd & 10th.
In this 4 week program, we’ll be teaching how this one simple and powerful program altered our editing workflow and easily cut back our image processing time by at least 75 percent. Each week, for 4 weeks, we will meet for one 2 hour class.
And while we will be working with Lightroom 4, many of the concepts and techniques can be applied using earlier versions. So bring your laptop (loaded with Lightroom) and we’ll provide the rest. We will provide working files so that we can all work on the same images at the same time seeing real time results.
This will be a progressive course with each week building on the previous week’s knowledge.
Basic topics we’ll cover:
File importing (multiple ways – from a drive/camera etc.)
Viewing your images
Grid and loupe view
Image review and selection (picks, flags, stars, etc.)
Keywords – how to use them
