Adobe Lightroom is the go-to processing tool of professional photographers around the world, and with good reason. It is fast, powerful, incredibly versatile, and totally non-destructive. Lightroom 4 and 5 both use the Adobe Camera Raw Process 2012, which is a major improvement in Raw processing. Lightroom is different from Photoshop, being simpler but with its own learning curve. This workshop will show you the basic tools in the Develop module, and show you some tricks to make your images "pop". This will be a "hands on" workshop, and it is best if participants bring their laptops loaded with Lightroom 4 or 5.
