Lightroom Workshop

With every photography workshop I've taught, I always get requests to teach a Lightroom class.  We are big fans of Lightroom.  It is the program we use 99% of the time at the studio.  There is no better way to organize, edit, and beautify your images quickly.  It has all the power you need to create professional photographs.

Adobe offers a FREE 30 day trial of Lightroom at this link:  Lightroom download.  If you like it, you can buy it from Adobe for $149 or $78 at academicsuperstore.com if you have a student or are a student.

Please bring your computer - preferably a laptop that is charged.  We will have some power for some computers.  If you're needing power, be sure to send me a message through this site and I'll be sure we're ready.

On Saturday February 1st, I will be teaching a workshop on Lightroom.  The workshop will be 10:00-3:30.  During this 5.5 hours, I will teach you everything I know about Lightroom including:

• Organize your image library in a way that makes sense. 

• Import and export in whatever format/size you want. 

• Create presets to quickly make your images unique and remarkable. 

• Easily change cropping, color balance, exposure, contrast, etc. to correct an image. 

• Knowing the tricks to make your images POP and look professional.

• Fix problems with the image - change the background, remove skin blemishes, reduce pixelation, darken or lighten part of the picture. 

• Create slideshow videos with a few clicks.

If you want to create beautiful photographs, knowing how to use your camera is only part of it.  You must know how to beautify your images the same way professionals do.  Have you ever wondered why your images never look like the pros even though you're photographing correctly? Believe me, Lightroom is necessary make your images amazing.  I'm including some before and after pictures that demonstrate the type of things you will be able to do with Lightroom.

We will also offer some cool presets.  The same ones we use at the studio and at FotoFlyAway.

The cost is $40.  It's worth $40.  This workshop will be very hands-on with your own computers.  I'll get you some images before the class so we're all working from the same images.  You will learn.

 


 


I hope to see you there!

    Eric-
    There were nine spots this morning, and now it is full! I must have waited too long. Please let me know if someone cancels! Also, do you know when your next Lr workshop will be if I can't get in to this one? Thanks for offering these!

    Sorry Eric, I also have another question.
    Do we need a certain program to do your light room workshop? Are we supposed to download the 30 Day trial to take this class?

    Also, is there any way we can be notified for the classes sooner? I received your email this morning, & that usually does not leave me enough time to find a sitter. It would be helpful. Thanks!

    January 31, 2014

    • Eric

      Hey Stephanie, Sorry about that! I do post about them on Facebook but I need to send something out sooner. I would have Lightroom installed on your computer for the class. I hope you like the class.

      January 31, 2014

    • Stephanie J.

      Ok i will install it today! Thanks. And unfortunately I am not a fan of facebook for personal reasons, so if i can be notified persoanlly be email or something sooner, i would extremely appreciate it Eric! Looking forward to seeing you!

    Hi Eric, will you please change my RSVP to +1?

    January 28, 2014

    • Eric

      No problem Konnie - Thanks! See you tomorrow.

    I'm wondering about the "bring a desktop" question too. I have lightroom 3 on my desktop but don't really have a laptop.

    January 28, 2014

    • Eric

      You can bring your desktop - no problem.

      January 31, 2014

  • Elizabeth Bellomy H.

    Although the battery life on my laptop is pretty good, I'll probably need to use some power for a little bit part way through. Thanks!

    January 31, 2014

    • Eric

      No problem. See you there.

      January 31, 2014

  • Erin

    I will need power for my laptop, the battery doesn't last very long anymore. Thanks!

    January 31, 2014

    • Eric

      No problem.

      January 31, 2014

  • Stephanie J.

    Hi Eric! I am so excited to finally get to work with you since we have talked many times about our weight loss success stories, and my adorable kids you have photographed when you first opened. I will definitely please need power for my laptop. Our battery is horrible and will not last that long. I hope you have enough to go around for mine too! :)
    Looking forward to your class.

    January 31, 2014

    • Eric

      I'll have power for you. :)

      January 31, 2014

  • Cheryl J.

    Hi Eric! I'll need a power source as well. I'm excited to attend tomorrow but like Stephanie asked...is there a way to get notified of these workshops sooner rather then the day before? Thanks!

    January 31, 2014

    • Eric

      Yeah - I post about them on our Facebook page. I'm trying to plan further ahead though so people can make arrangements.

      January 31, 2014

  • Heather K.

    Eric, I think I will bring my desktop too. Is there power and room for that?

    January 29, 2014

    • Heather K.

      Never mind, I got a laptop that I think will work. I'm not sure about the battery life though. I imagine it will need to be charged sometime during the day.

      January 30, 2014

  • Stacy C.

    Hi, I will need power for my laptop - it only lasts about 1.5 to 2 hours. I'm happy to bring a power strip if that will help. Thanks!!

    January 25, 2014

    • Eric

      We'll be ready for you. :)

      January 28, 2014

    • Stacy C.

      Thanks!

      January 28, 2014

  • Crystal H.

    I will also need access to power halfway through,. my battery wont last the whole class. Thank you,

    January 28, 2014

  • Breeanne M.

    I've got a decent laptop battery, but I don't think it will last all day. An hour or so with access to power halfway through should suffice.

    January 28, 2014

  • Eileen

    So excited for this class! I'd love to be able to say that I won't need power, but I highly doubt that my laptop will make it through the whole day, so count me in for needing some power.

    January 24, 2014

    • Eric

      No problem - see you then.

      January 28, 2014

  • Kristy P

    I'm am excited to get to come to this class finally!!! I will need power for my laptop though. Thanks!

    January 24, 2014

    • Eric

      No problem. See you Saturday.

  • Darla W.

    I only have My imac with light room 3. Do you still have a spot with electricity.

    January 27, 2014

    • Eric

      Yeah. We'll have something ready for you.

      January 28, 2014

  • Stephanie D.

    My laptop battery has been acting funny the past couple of days, do you have any more spots with electricity?

    January 27, 2014

    • Eric

      You're good.

      January 28, 2014

  • Jen G.

    So seems like everyone needs some electricity....you really going to have 30+ plug ins available?

    January 27, 2014

    • Eric

      Yeah, we'll have a lot of power. Hopefully, we don't blow a circuit...

      January 28, 2014

  • Melissa

    Really, bring desktop, monitor, everything?

    January 28, 2014

    • Eric

      I'd get there early to set up but that's fine if you're good with it.

      January 28, 2014

  • Sherry Lange M.

    Will there be power if we need it. My laptop lasts for approximately 2 hours.

    January 28, 2014

    • Eric

      Yeah - we'll have power for you.

    January 24, 2014

  • Amanda A.

    I really want to join this class, but have plans on the first during that time. Are you planning another class? This is one I am REALLY interested in!

    January 24, 2014

    • Eric

      Hey Amanda - it'll probably be some time in April.

      January 24, 2014

    • Amanda A.

      Awesome! I'll plan on not making plans! Hopefully is not the weekend of the 26th though haha.

      January 24, 2014

      January 24, 2014

  • Shayne E.

    I have plans that day, but would love to participate in the future. $40.00 seems very reasonable.

    January 23, 2014

    • Eric

      January 24, 2014

  • Winifred P.

    January 24, 2014

    • Eric

      1 · January 24, 2014

  • Benjamin M.

    What version of Lightroom are you going to focus on in this class? I am currently running version 3 but have been playing with the idea of upgrading...

    January 24, 2014

    • Winifred P.

      They will use lightroom 5 for the class. But he said version 4 is pretty similar and he will point out the differences. Don't know about version 3

      January 24, 2014

    • Eric

      It's about the same - 95% of it will be.

      January 24, 2014

  • Julia B.
