Greetings Lady Photographers, As planned, Rebecca Benoit will present the second session of Lightroom (5). She promised that this will be even more fun!

We were unable to schedule this session sooner because of limited availablity at the Library. But we have lots to look forward to when the weather is quite rainy.

Lightroom 5 -
Editing - The Juicy Stuff
Although Lightroom
is an awesome file management tool and database, the magic really happens for
photographers in the Develop module. Here is where you adjust tone and color,
crop, straighten, fix perspective, convert to black and white, reduce noise and
sharpen and more. Local adjustments include an adjustment brush, radial filter
(new in LR5), graduated filter (you won't believe what this does to those washed
out skies!), and the hugely improved spot removal tool.

Join Rebecca Benoit of Pixelegacy for an in depth look at the LR5 Develop

Topics include:
Cropping and straightening photos

Fixing perspective with the new Upright tool

Adjusting color and tone

Reducing noise, sharpening

Targeting edits with the adjustment brush

Using the radial and graduated filters

Applying the spot removal tool

Correcting for lens and camera

Who Is This Class For?
This class is great for photographers who are thinking of getting
Lightroom, and those who already have Lightroom but need to get a better handle
on how to use it. Advanced users will also no doubt get some jewels!

What Do I Need To Bring?
The session will be more of a demonstration than an actual hands-on class,
however, you are welcome to bring a laptop with Lightroom already installed (you
can download a 30 day free trial if you like) to follow along if you like.

Anything Else?
You'll take home a handout with guidance on the information covered.

(Also, I still have Lightroom 3 and I found the previous class still very helpful!)
