It is one thing to know how to take a photograph, but that is only half the battle. Come join us to learn how to edit your photos and really make them come alive. Make sure to bring your laptop withLightroom already installed so you can follow along and ask questions.


Ansel Adams did most of his magic in the darkroom and that applies to us digital photographers today, but in the form of Lightroom, our digital darkroom. I have always been one to preach about getting the photo right in the camera, but that doesn't mean I don't make changes to them on the computer to really make the images POP!

This class is for those of you who wish to get the most of your images or just want to know how to use that program everyone told you to buy and cost you so much money. If you have always looked at someone else's photos and wondered how they got the colors to really pop out or how to convert you photos to black and white or sepia then this is the class for you.

In this class we will:

Learn the basics of getting started with Lightroom with importing, locating files, and navigating through the various options.Learn where everything is and what all those buttons and sliders do, how to use them, and why to use them under the "Develop" tab.Edit images and learn how to export them properly.How to use the rating system to help organize your images effectively.Discuss creating and adding a watermark to your photos.Make a change to one photo and then sync those changes across multiple photos to help save you time in the editing process.Provide you a few starter images to follow along with on your computer and then we will save time for you to edit a few of your photos and share the before and after with the class.

In order to get the most out of this class we strongly encourage you to bring your laptop or desktop to the class. We will have plenty of plugs for you to plug into, wifi and tables for you to get setup on. It would also be nice if you have Lightroom already setup on your computer (Versions 1, 2, 3 and 4 all work for this class).

This class will be 3 hours long and will be setup in a way for you to follow along and ask questions during the lecture and hands on portions of the class so you can get the most out of it. With this being the case the class is $69 due to the amount of setup and resources allocated to the class. It will also be kept smaller to ensure there is plenty of 1-on-1 attention.

What to bring:

Your computer with lightroom already installed. Don't have Adobe Lightroom?
