Lightroom Workflow - from Camera to Print

Johnson PhotoImaging

$75.00

Lightroom is a powerful tool for the photographer. It’s an organizer, Editor, and can output your creative works in a myriad of ways. The big question is, “Where do you start?” Based upon the idea that “one of the best ways of learning is doing”, we’ve set up a new class that takes you through the process - several times. We’ll take a look at some of the variations and options, while building a solid foundation in the overall workflow. The class is limited to 6 students and runs 2 hours approximately. Bring your camera and your laptop (fully charged, with a copy of Lightroom). Base level knowledge of your computer's filing system, storage locations, and operational shortcuts will go a long way towards enhancing your experience in this course and with your computer system. Fee: $75 Class duration may vary, somewhat, from the designated time - depending on group size, and group involvement. The class has an active participation part and expects full interaction with each student. The goal is for everyone to learn, create and enjoy.
