Lightroom User Group Featuring Special Guest Jim Goldstein

Jim Goldstein is a professional photographer, based out of San Francisco, who specializes in outdoor and nature photography.   Passionate about nature and the environment, Jim infuses elements of the natural world into his commercial and editorial work.

Jim will be presenting on his Star Trails photography workflow.  See examples of Jim's Star Trails photos here: Star Trails Gallery.  Jim's photos are amazing, so even if you can't attend this event you should check out the gallery, and Jim's eBook Photographing the 4th Dimension - Time.  Jim will demonstrate how he produces these photos, and will walk us through his complete cross-application workflow using Lightroom, Bridge, and Photoshop.  More info about Jim is available on his website.


This meetup is NOT at our usual location.  Our usual location is at 601 Townsend, but this meetup will be held a couple blocks away at 410 Townsend.

Also please note that the Bay Bridge will be CLOSED on the 29th, so plan your travel accordingly (thanks jbdata).

The usual fine print: 

If you're new to Lightroom, you might benefit from watching the recording of my "Intro to Lightroom" presentation before attending this meetup.  You can watch the recording here.

We'll have some pizza and socializing from 6:30 to 7:00, and we'll start the presentation itself at 7:00.

There is no Giants game that night, so street parking should be easy.  And 410 Townsend is even closer to the Caltrain station than our usual location.

When you RSVP, please submit your full first and last name, so that we can have name tags ready for everyone before you arrive.
Hope to see you all there!

    hope bay bridge related traffic doesn't mess up commute to meeting.

    Will talk be just on the start trail photography or will other LR uses be covered as well?

    I have LR 5 and Photoshop elements. Will class help with those programs?
