Change the way you think about image processing!!
Back by popular demand!!
Ansel Adams himself said that half of photography is in the processing. That is still true today, and one of least understood aspects of photography is how to correctly edit an image to make it shine. Internationally known travel and landscape photographer Dan Ballard has been using Abode Lightroom to edit his images since the first beta version was released 7 years ago. He now uses the program almost exclusively. Dan has a very unique approach to editing and we feel this technique will change the way you edit and think about image processing forever.
Dan always gets rave reviews about his classes and presentations and we guarantee you will go away inspired and with new tools to edit your images. This class will teach you how to create powerful, jaw dropping images and basics tips for managing and sorting files.
Dan will cover his workflow from camera to final output. Although the bulk of this class will focus on the artistic side of processing images, many tips and tricks about using the program will also be shared. This class is suitable for all levels of photographers and Lightroom users, from those who have not yet purchased the software to those that have been using it for many years. This class is also suitable for those who prefer Adobe Camera Raw as most of the editing tools are the same.
After the class you will be dying to go back and reprocess older images....who knows, you may find a hidden masterpiece!
You can always go to www.adobe.com and download the 30-day trial if you don't own Lightroom and want to check it out so you have it for this workshop. MIke is an Adobe reseller, so you may purchase the software from him if you'd like to.
Bring your laptop with LR installed and a few images you want to work on as we will be doing a lot of hands on editing. We may need some extra power strips, so if you have one, please bring it.
"The class was great! I've spent more money on a Lightroom class and got half as much productive knowledge out of it. I walked away thinking I can now do something with Lightroom!”
"Superb!!! This was exactly what I was hoping it would be. As a long time NX2 user, Dan's demonstration made it clear to me that even as an old guy who is slow to learn that I can learn and use LR4 and enjoy it. Thanks Dan!!!!”
"Wow...What a fantastic class. Dan is very, very passionate and this definitely comes across. I learned a lot from him and can't wait to get started. Thanks Dan for all the information. Loved it!”
"That was amazing! Dan's insights into working with Lightroom 4 was very helpful. He also does a great job of teaching quite a lot in a short amount of time. Dan is an excellent instructor and I am so glad that I signed up for this presentation! I really appreciated that the majority of the time was spent on image editing. It was so helpful to see Dan's RAW images right out of the camera, and then watch him edit them. Thanks SO much, Mike and Dan, for setting this up for us! I learned a LOT!”
"Dan did a fabulous job sharing his workflow with both landscape and portraits within Lightroom. Showing his before and after photos, then recreating the same effect within the class was a benefit to me. Then repeat those steps several times with various photos helped me to really learn his workflow thus allowing me to incorporate some of his steps into my own photography. Great presentation!!”
"Excellent. Dan Ballard is an accomplished instructor who knows his Lightroom and is able to share it effectively with his audience. The class exceeded my expectations and opened new possibilities for my photography.”
