I've been getting some questions about the next Lightroom class. I've given the class a little face lift and settled on some dates. Combining photography with a busy family can often leave me short on time. But photography is precious to me so I had to find a way to make it work. Lighroom is an editing program that allows me time to import and organize my pics, then edit them in the most efficient way possible. The next class starts June 9, 2014.
Lightroom 101: An Editing class for Beginners, will demonstrate how I edit photos efficiently via Lightroom. I'll keep it simple, use easy-to-understand language, and give you step-by-step instructions and video demonstrations too. No secretes. If I know it, I'm willing to share it!
In this 7-week class, we'll talk about editing photos in the most efficient way possible. I'll show you how to brightening eyes, smoothing skin, whitening teeth and removing blemishes. There will be instruction on how to convert photos to black and white, and how to do noise reduction and correct white balance.
Here is an "oops" picture that was a test shot for a gorgeous red-head that I recently shot. Roll over it with your cursor to see what it looked like before I edited in Lightroom.
I'm not going to leave you hangin' because this class is going to be totally interactive! We're in this together via a private forum just for our class where you can ask questions and get feedback. There are no set times that you need to be "in class" because you choose when to check in online, view course material, and there's no pressure because you work at your own pace. I will be available the whole time for questions and to offer clarifications and information.
Because I love to show off the wonderful skills of my students, and to give you an idea of what the power of Lightroom, the following photos were all taken by students that have completed my class and edited in Lightroom. Roll over the photo to see the image as it came out of the camera and before editing.
Pretty impressive, hu?
And ya, you'll learn how to put that little watermark on your photo too, and why it's important to do it!
