We will cover using Lightroom to organize, edit, adjust, and output images. This hands on workshop will start with students importing digital images, organizing them using Lightroom’s easy file catalog system. From there, we will utilize Lightroom’s developing capabilities to make basic adjustments like color balance, exposure, contrast, and basic retouching. we will even cover my favorite – converting to Black and White.

As the final step in our workflow, we will learn to output images for various purposes such as printing, emails, slide shows, and websites.

NOTE: We will not cover Photoshop …… we most definitely have an “agenda” which is to introduce digital photographers to easy and accessible tool so we will focus on the incredible Adobe Lightroom software.
