Lightroom: Basics and More

I am going to take you through Lightroom in this class. From the proper way to import your files, Culling your photos the right way, all the way through editing multiple photos and Exporting them for the best look online with Social Media. Also will be going over how to create and save your own Presets and Brushes. I will be using Lightroom 5 but if you have Lightroom 4 most of these things will apply as well.  

Focus will be on Portrait's. 

I will be bringing a disk with some of my shots on it if you don't have any so you can follow along but most of these things will apply to any portrait you do. 

Class will be limited in size so that everyone gets plenty of opportunity to ask questions.  

Added bonus, I will give you plenty of time to copy some of my Brush Settings that I use.  This will give you a huge advantage over everyone else just starting out with Lightroom.  

I will be bringing my Laptop with either a TV or Projector so all can see what I am doing.

What you will need: Bring your laptop. Any images you would like to learn to edit. Must have a copy of Lightroom. If you are thinking of buying the program you can download a 30 day trial from Adobe's website to use during this class.

    Is there anything in particular that any of you want me to go over tomorrow so I can prepare for the question?I was asked the other day if I would be going over Tethering and though I was not planning on it, I am now going to at least demonstrate it a bit. It's not something I do very much to be honest but I have messed around with it in the past. Needless to say I got to find my USB cable to my camera now. :)

      Will go over that if I am understanding your question. Some things might hit the limit of its capabilities but will show you what is possible.

      I don't know if this is something that can be covered in this workshop or not, but I'd love to learn how to create a logo like you have.

    BTW, I will be bringing some sample images for this if you don't have anything of your own that you would like to edit.
