Using Adobe Lightroom

Lightroom Isn’t Just for Pros!

Adobe Lightroom is the primary tool of the the “natural photographer” who isn’t looking for that overly retouched look. This class is an in-depth look at Lightroom. From organizing how your photographs are stored on your computer, all the way to fine art editing; this course covers a the vast majority of all of Lightroom’s functions, with a key emphasis on the chronological approach.


We don’t teach you how to use Adobe Photoshop Lightroom by explaining all of its features, while you sit back and take notes. In this class, you bring your own laptop and we’ll give you instructions that you’ll immediately put into practice on the photos we’ll supply you with. This class is taught in the order you would naturally edit your photos in – right at the beginning from plugging your memory card into the computer to get your images in the first place, to where you store them and organize them. We will then go universal editing functions such as colour editing, sharpness and colour manipulations, into fine art editing and filters. Finally, we will finish the course with how to export your finished work into the correct format for either printing or sharing on social media.
