Hi Everyone,  I  still have some spots available in my two-day Lightroom Fundamentals workshop this weekend, and will take last minute sign ups through Thursday.  Mention SAPUG for a $15 discount on this workshop only!  I hope you can join us.


Lightroom Fundamentals, Jan 30-31, 9 am - 5 pm

Lightroom is Adobe's image management and enhancement program designed specifically for photographers. With the inclusion in version 2 of the ability to make local image enhancements, Lightroom has become a powerful program which can dramatically increase the efficiency of your workflow. In this two day Part One workshop, learn the fundamentals, concentrating on the Library and Develop modules where you manage, edit and enhance your images. With hands-on practice, learn how to organize, backup, manage, edit and enhance your images, and how to work through large shoots efficiently with collections, presets, and synchronized settings.  Discuss where Photoshop or Photoshop elements may still fit in your workflow, and learn how to move between Lightroom and Photoshop or Elements. No prior experience with Lightroom is necessary; limited to 12 students; laptop computer required. $295.

The workshop will be held at Studio R (home of the R-Strap camera strap) in Fremont. 

I will also be teaching a one-day Printing with Lightroom class February 13:


In this one day workshop learn how to achieve high-quality color and black and white prints with Lightroom 2. We start with color management -- learn why and how to calibrate your monitor, what color spaces and gamut mean, and what printer profiles are and how you find and use them. We discuss printer and paper options, and then we move on to the Lightroom Print module, where you learn how to lay out and print individual images, contact sheets and picture packages. We discuss contrast and sharpening, so that your prints have the impact you intend. Finally, we cover how to use templates to make your printing incredibly quick and consistent. Practice printing with the the state-of-the-art Epson 3880 printer. Prerequisite: Lightroom Fundamentals or equivalent. It is assumed that you know how to import your images and use the Develop module to optimize them. Laptop with Lightroom 2.5 required. Limited to 6 students. $165.



For those of you who didn't get to hear me speak about Lightroom at the last meeting, here's some feedback from the group:
