Lightroom is the essential software tool for any serious photographer. Come and learn the fundamentals of this incredibly powerful tool that many professionals have come to rely on.

Experienced instructor Kathy Tarantola will help guide you through the basics. This workshop will thoroughly cover the Library and Develop modules where you manage, keyword, edit and enhance your images. With hands-on practice, learn how to quickly and easily import, organize, edit, rate, and enhance your images, and how to work through large shoots efficiently with synchronized settings and presets. We will discuss how Photoshop will still fit in your workflow, and learn how to move between Lightroom and Photoshop easily.

We will take several images through the entire Develop workflow, reviewing tools as we go. Topics emphasized will be based on student needs. You will have time to practice with your own images, ask questions, and get feedback on your work.

Herb Greene, Led Zeppelin & The Grateful Dead

Portfolio shown in custom case

Portfolio shown in custom case.

In a limited edition portfolio, photographer Herb Greene tells an interesting tale of an afternoon spent photographing Led Zeppelin and The Grateful Dead. Digital Silver Imaging founder, Eric Luden, shows viewers these amazing images, in a video created by BeTerrific.

As Eric states, things between Led Zeppelin and The Grateful Dead did not go as well as photographer Herb Greene would have hoped. The  1969 encounter makes for a legendary rock and roll tale and an exceptional collection of beautiful black & white prints. The images that Digital Silver Imaging created were scanned from Greene’s original black & white film and printed onto DSI Digital Silver Prints®. These images have never been included in a single collection. The limited edition is available for sale through Rock Paper Photo.

Special thanks to BeTerrific for creating this video. Visit their site or download the BeTerrific app for news on all the latest and greatest.
