The return of the FREE Lightroom classes at Ross Norton Recereation Complex
What better way to learn and improve your Lightroom skills than in a relaxed atmosphere. This was an informal study group that has transitioned to a formal evening class. It has an anounced topic and structure each night.
Every Monday night the instructor will teach for two hours in a formal manner using his laptop and projector, as illustrated above. Every module will be covered over the course of several months.
Want additional help or have questions that weren't answered in class? Please consider joining us at FCCP After Dark, just down the street, at O'Keefe's Family Restaurant in Clearwater.
What FCCP Members are saying about the class.
Jeff explains Lightroom patiently, in a logical sequence, and with strict clarity. He continually checks for understanding, and dignifies all questions. His sense of humor puts everyone at ease . . . . . . Cade
Great class and great studio! I love learning in depth how a program works, so this class was spot on. I will be there next week! . . . . . . Kelly
Great group of people, great teacher & a comfortable, quiet meeting site! . . . Jane
I have had good instructors in the past, but Jeff Donald is by far the best. He speaks clearly and loudly, he knows his subject, he knows what is important to cover, he stays on task, he repeatedly asks for questions, he is friendly, he has a sense of humor, and he is everyone’s idea of a leader. . . . . . John
There will be lots of learning and laughter. Jeff Donald will teach each session and he's a certified Lightroom teacher, having taught every version since the first beta version in 2007. Jeff worked for Apple Computer until 2009 and worked with 1,000's of customers during that time. Experienced members will be on hand to share tips & tricks and more.
There is free, well lighted, parking at Ross Norton Rec. Center. If the front lot is full, please park behind the building.
