What: Lightroom 2 - Beginning to End 4 week class

When: January 4,[masked]:00 AM

total: $99.00 per person

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

So, you have Lightroom. Now what? You played around with some of the settings, tried to figure out what it does what. You've spent hours "playing" with Lightroom, but you need to learn so much more. You may have even watched a DVD or an on-line video, but you have questions and there was no one to ask. Well, this class should answer most of your questions, and if not we'll find the answers.

Each week we will cover different modules:


  • Week 1 - Library Module: We'll start with setting up Lightroom to suit you, your workflow and your passion, importing, sorting, key wording and metadata, collections, file management, exporting and exporting presets.
    I know this turns us creatives off but it is an important and necessary foundation.

  • Week 2 - Develop module: Color correcting, retouching (we will even give you some of our LR retouching presets and show you how to use them, you will be amazed), tons of effects (you will get a set of some of our favorite creative pre-sets as well).

  • Week 3 - Slideshow and Web galleries modules: Creating slideshows and SEO friendly web galleries. We will give you a sneak peak at what is coming in Lightroom 3, slideshows will be able to be exported as movies.

  • Week 4 - Print module and Q&A review: We will help you set up printing templates and picture packages, as well as help you choose the profiles and custom print settings you need to get beautiful results. The second hour will be dedicated to reviewing what we have learned. We will do this by having you ask the questions you need answered to clarify anything you missed or did not understand.


Don't wait this class will fill up fast. We have limited the class size to 10-12 so everyone will get the attention they need to be a success with Lightroom.

We will provide images to work on during class time, as well as other files including presets that will be useful to you later.

Your welcome and encouraged to bring a laptop with Lightroom already installed. If you learn better by just taking notes, please bring your note pad and pen laptops are not required.

Class dates:
January 4, 11,18,and 25. 9am-12pm.
We will also be offering a Thursday evening session for the 4 week course.

We don't want the classes to get in the way of your photographic assignments so we have made it flexible for you.
The $99 fee covers the 4 sessions and is not restricted to the specific class dates you sign up for. If you miss a session you may make it up at either a monday class in the next series or you may attend a thursday evening session.

If you wish to repeat a class yo have already taken you are welcome as long as the class is not filled. Please e-mail us if you would like to repeat a class and we will make our best effort to accommodate your needs.

Watch for the Lightning 1 hour sessions will be creating to cover additional topics in depth that will be offered twice a month.
