During this intensive two-day workshop, taught by Adobe Certified Expert Matt Anderson or A’ron Schmukle, you’ll become familiar with the organizational and creative functionalities of Adobe Lightroom – the photography industry’s gold standard for image selecting and editing. Meeting first on Saturday, we’ll get you up and running with a system for importing, selecting and organising your digital photography. Discover how metadata, import presets and the use of smart collections can make finding your favorite shots dead-easy. On Sunday students will learn how to put that extra “punch” into their images and become familiar with several essential retouching tools. Join us if you’ve been wanting to straighten out your digital workflow and polish up your images with Adobe’s latest Lightroom software.

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.
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.

This workshop is full of demonstrations and short exercises to get you setup with Lightroom’s essential time-saving preferences, presets and templates. The instructors will guide students through a number of key processes from importing, tagging, selecting and ranking images to creative color and black and white adjustments and much more. We ask that each student bring one favourite landscape image and one favourite portrait image for Sunday’s retouching session. In addition to those two images, students will work with photos supplied by the instructors.
The program is explained clearly and you immediately learn quick ways of working with Lightroom. A real bonus! It has definitely made a huge difference in the quality of my photo output and my way of storing photos.
