Lightroom Classic 101 – Basics and Beyond will give you a working knowledge of Lightroom, the leading editing and processing program for photo professionals and enthusiasts alike. We will cover both the Library and Develop modules. In the Library Module we will cover the best workflow practices of importing, organizing, renaming, using stars and color labels for rating, and keywording and metadata for search simplicity. You will learn how to work through large shoots efficiently with synchronized settings and presets, and how to use Collections for creating virtual folders of your images for major efficiency. Then, with the Develop Module, let the fun begin! Learn the quick and easy tips for editing your work, beginning with learning to evaluate any image and using the tools to make portfolio quality images.
During Lightroom Classic 101 – Basics and Beyond we will take several images through the entire editing 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.
