Lightroom 2 - Introduction to editing - in person at Studio 858

Non-destructive photo editing; that's the fundamental difference between Lightroom and Photoshop. With Adobe's Creative Cloud, you do get both for only $10 per month, but Lightroom is where you should do your organizing and preliminary editing. And the things it can do! Yes! We'll go over all the global adjustments & here's what you'll learn:
• How to best use the Basic adjustments for
– color - white balance
– exposure & contrast
– Highlights, shadows, d-max (black point) & d-min (white point)
– Texture, clarity, dehaze, saturation & vibrance
• Tone Curves, HSL/Color controls, Split Toning, and more!
• Presets; what they do and how you can create your own.

Bring your laptop & power supply with the latest version of Lightroom Classic and be ready to learn!
