• Lightroom CC

    My House

    $60.00

    Lightroom CC The class will alternate weeks covering the Library and Develop modules in Lightroom. If you are the only person registered you can choose which module you want to focus on. This class will run with one person registered. However, please register at least one day before the class so I know your planning to attend. Let's face it, digital photography isn't like film photography. We can't just mail our image to a lab and wait for nice pictures to come back from the lab. Now you are the lab, fixing your images in some sort of image editing program is at least half the job you have as the photographer. Below you will find my plan to help you with this problem. My new favorite quote and I think it definitely applies to learning Photoshop. "People that want to do something, do what's convenient. People that are determined to do something do whatever it takes."
