In this, the 2nd workshop in the Lightroom Classic CC Series, Bob will discuss processing (developing) of images. If you are experienced with this software, you do not have to take all 4 workshops to benefit from this class.
The focus this month is on Lightroom Classic CC - the post processing software that Bob has used for the past 11 years. He started working with it when he was a hobbyist and continues to work with it in his professional photography work. He strongly recommends it for photographers of all levels! Lightroom Classic CC is an extremely powerful tool for organizing your images, editing your images and printing your images. It covers a lot of ground, and has a learning curve, but once you get comfortable with it, you will love what it can do for you!
The Lightroom Classic CC series is broken up into four separate and unique workshops. Participants are welcome to take one, two, three or all four workshops. There is a 20% discount on the 4 classes if you sign up for all session ($128 for 4 workshops.) Follow this link to sign up for all 4 workshops at the discounted rate. https://www.meetup.com/Rochester-Photography-Workshops/events/245542003/
There are no pre-requisites to attending any single workshop, just understand that each workshop focuses on unique features of the software and there will be limited time to address off-topic questions.
The "Develop Module" will be where we spend our time for this workshop. We will start with what are referred to global adjustments, such as brightening, or darkening the entire image. Adjusting the color temperature (white balance), sharpening, lens correction, etc. If you don't know what all these terms mean, don't worry. I will move slowly, and I always encourage you to stop me and ask questions if you feel lost. After we are comfortable with global adjustments and the ability to save them as presets, we will move into localized adjustments that allow us to target only a portion of the image. I recommend Lightroom Classic CC to just about everyone that asks me what software they should use because it is great for both organizing as well as developing digital images.

While I love to write, I don't have the time or resources to write out lengthy software based handouts for these workshops, especially when several great resources already exist. This entire group of Lightroom Classic CC workshops will be strongly based upon the recommended text. I urge you to both buy it, and bring it along to the workshop. You are encouraged to bring your laptop to the workshop.
Adobe provides a free download, so if you don't already own it, you can download the trial version on your laptop and bring it to the class. Please bring a variety of images to practice on during the workshop.
