First in a series of beginner to intermediate workshops to help you discover the power of Adobe Lightroom to manage your digital photographs from import to finished print.
Lightroom has rapidly become the software of choice for professional and serious amateur photographers. A complement to, rather than a replacement for Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom not only provides all the editing tools most photographers require, but is also an industry level image library that will help you manage and keep track of your digital files. Most photographers find that using Lightroom helps them work quicker and more efficiently, and Lightroom may be a better first choice than Photoshop for many serious or aspiring photographers.
This one-day overview will guide you through the key stages of importing images from your camera, managing storage and retrieval and selecting the best images from your shoot. We will then explore the most commonly used of Lightroom’s editing tools to crop and adjust each photograph.
Please bring with you a typical shoot of between 50 – 60 consecutive images, preferably straight off the camera (warts and all! – do not cherry pick your best images or the exercises won’t work as well), either on a memory card or flash drive. Lightroom is at its most powerful if you shoot in RAW, but is equally at home with jpgs. If you are not sure of the difference, you will be by the end…
By end of this session you should be comfortable navigating quickly around the different sections of Lightroom, and understand how to use the Library module to rapidly import and edit a shoot into draft and final selections, and be familiar with the basic post production tools in the Develop module.
