Price: $40.00 /per person

Location visible to members


In this workshop we will focus on the develop module in Lightroom. Join us and learn how to improve your editing workflow so you spend less time editing and more time taking pictures. We will edit multiple images from start to finish while discussing each change and the reasoning and benefit for it. We will focus on portrait photography editing techniques like brightening eyes, smoothing skin, removing blemishes, and evening skin tones.

We will cover the following

-Complete overview of the develop settings
-How to use the sliders to make basic changes
-which changes to make first, how to triage your edits
-how to make batch edits (more than image edited at once)
-using brushes, graduated filters, and presets for more detailed portrait edits.

Please bring 2 non-processed .jpg or RAW images on a USB that we will discuss then edit together as a group.

Everyone will receive 5 LR4 brush presets for attending.

- Sparkling Eyes (Brush)

- Pearly White Smile (Brush)

- Sunset Haze (Preset)

- Brighten and Pop (Brush)

- Shades of Silver (Preset)

The group will be kept small so that everyone has the opportunity to have questions answered easily. For this workshop you will need a notebook, a pen, and 2 images on a USB. You do not need your computer or laptop.

Drinks and snacks will be provided.
