Saturday March 24, 12-6 pm DSI will conduct an Adobe Lightroom Workshop. 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.
The class will thoroughly cover the Library and Develop modules where you manage, keyword, edit and enhance your images. With hands-on practice, learn how to import, organize, edit, rate, fix 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.
• Import process • Organizing and naming your photos • Editing photo shoots – synchronizing • Using ratings and filters • Collections and smart collections • Mastering metadata and keywording • Exporting
• Evaluating photos and making creative decisions • Perfecting tone and color in each photo • Applying sharpening and noise reduction • Correcting lens distortion and chromatic aberration • Using virtual copies • Making great black and white conversions • Applying special effects
The class will also cover the basics of the Slideshow, Print and Web modules, all of which take your workflow to a professional conclusion.
