Lightroom Tuition

Lightroom training for Photographers  (Beginners / Intermediate) - 3 Hour Session

 

Have you taken hundreds of pictures on your last holiday trip? Do you wish you could edit and perfect your photos in a fast intuitive way, then efficiently organise and share them? Then my Adobe Lightroom for Photographers course is what you’re looking for.

 

This will include how to name and organise your files, followed by and introduction to the Lightroom interface. We will then go on to take a look at the fundamental principles and actions of Lightroom, followed by a variety of hands on guided and individual practice.

 

Finally, you will learn how to resize, save and prepare your image for output.

 

 

My Lightroom for Photographers tuition has two goals: first, to teach you how to organise and label the hundreds of digital images that you have, and second to introduce you to the extremely intuitive and creative editing interface that Lightroom offers. We will take a look at all aspects of the standard digital workflow: focusing on importing, organising, editing and then exporting and sharing your images.

We will start from the beginning by first developing an understanding of image formats (JPEG v. RAW) and the fundamentals of the digital image – the meaning of pixels and dynamic range.

Included in this price is my travel around London, through all Zones. If you live further afield, I am more than happy to travel to you, though I will charge an additional fee to cover my travel costs.

This can also be completed via skype if you prefer to learn remotely. I will set up a sharescreen system so we can both see one another's screens and I can teach via this method.
