Lightroom Workflow and Portait Retouching - 3 PM

  • Dec 8, 2012 · 3:00 PM

I'm often asked how I can get images posted hours after a Meetup.
My secret weapon is Lightroom. I do 90% of my work in Lightroom with Photoshop reserved for special edits like liquify.

Vistek has kindly allowed our Meetup to use their classroom, where I'll be providing a 45 minute demo of how I use Lightroom to classify my images, sort through the keepers, retouch my favorites by softening skin, adding shine to the hair, accenting eyes and lips, then quickly adding my logo to a resized image for posting on Meetup, FaceBook etc.

There will 3 seminar sessions provided: 1 PM, 2 PM & 3 PM
RSVP to be guaranteed a seat.

    I enjoyed the session, as well. Even though I have triaged thousands of photos with Lightroom, I still picked up some tips. Vistek's classroom environment is great, too!

    Excellent presentation on Lightroom Workflow. Thanks so much for your expertise and your ease of explaining the process.

    I feel like there was so much more I wanted to cover but the questions were excellent and the focus was on Workflow. I think what would go over well next is a "Deep Dive into Lightroom Edit module"

    Excellent Presentation on the particular program and how to use it.

    Very interesting. I agree totally with finding out what can be done in a program especially before getting it setup. Although many already are very familiar with Lightroom (or PS), there are some of us who are not regular users. For us, the practicalities of "setting" up the first time would be a good discussion - preferences, organization of directories, etc. These were covered but in the course of the presentation. I, for one, would like to know more about the ins and outs of LR. Again, knowing you are very busy Mike, I still think even a 1 page handout of salient topics or points would serve well and not be too difficult to document. This could be put on the website for newbies. Thanks for all your work.

      Hi Peter, Don't know if you have been to the Lightroom website but there are videos and other great resources already there, starting with the basics.
