This course is open to anyone with basic computer skills. As a beginner course, no previous experience with Adobe Lightroom is needed but you need to be familiar with basic computer operations, such as creating new folders and locating files in your operating system.
Although this course will be thought in English, the instructor also has German hand-outs available and can help out in (Swiss) German if necessary.
You will need to bring your own laptop computer (Mac or PC) with an updated version of Adobe Lightroom pre-installed and ready to use. Please be sure that the program can be launched before coming to the first course session. It is not necessary to have any photos in your catalogue. We will use images provided by the instructor for most of our exercises. Students are asked to bring one portrait image and one landscape image for Sunday’s retouching exercises.
Viewfinder Center, Stampfenbachstr. 157, 8006 Zürich
