This three-hour advanced Lightroom class is for photographers who have some experience with Lightroom but seek to improve their images and workflow.

When you attend online, you'll have the same experience and the in person attendees except you won't get any of my M&Ms! You will still be able to ask questions and see my computer screen. I use a paid service for my online classes to assure you have easy access and get quality sound and video.

You know the basics of Lightroom but know there is still more that you can get from Lightroom. I’ll show you insights into advanced image processing that will make your photos like they were made by a professional. You’ll learn how to visualize how photos can be improved, even while you are taking the shot, which is where it all begins.

We’ll start with a few things in the Library module that can save you a ton of time but we’ll spend most of the seminar working in the Develop module where the real magic happens.

I will use many of my photos to show you how I make images look like what I saw in the field, which isn’t what you get in the RAW files cameras capture. All photos need some amount of work, some more than others. It could be just adding some black to make the image pop or it could be a good deal of work to make the sky looks the way it did when you made the picture. Lightroom is the easiest, fastest and best way to get the most out of your photos.

Many photographers think Lightroom only makes a difference for landscape or nature photos, but I’ll show you how to improve your people pictures too. There is a lot more than just making colors pop, I’ll show you how to get skin tones right so your prints look great.

I’ll be demonstrating with the latest version of Lightroom Classic but most things will be applicable to all versions whether you work on a Mac or Windows. We will cover a lot of material but I’ll have handouts that help you remember what we talk about and your photos will look better the next time you use Lightroom.

• Techniques for backing up your catalog and images
