Editing in Lightroom Workshop

Are your frustrated that when you edit your photos they still don’t look the way you want them to?

Are you confused about what steps to take to edit your photos so they look their best?

Do you understand the potential of the Lightroom’s gradient tools and adjustment brush?

If so then my Editing Your Photos in Lightroom workshop may be just what you are looking for.

 

On June 7-8, I will be teaching a workshop designed to help you think about what your vision for one of your photos is – and how to edit so that you can share your vision with other. We’ll focus on specific Lightroom tools used for local adjustments, including the adjustment brush and gradient tools.

If you aren’t comfortable using the global commands (Basic Panel and HSL Panel) for editing in Lightroom, you may want to take my Introduction to Lightroom workshop before taking this one. We’ll do a quick review of some of the topics from my Introduction to Lightroom workshop during this workshop but will not be discussing them in detail.

By the end of the workshop you’ll know:

  • How to think through your editing process before you start moving sliders
  • How to emphasize what you want to draw your viewer’s eye towards in your edited photos
  • How to use the local adjustment tools (gradient filter, radial filter & adjustment brush) to move past just doing global edits on your photos

To participate in the workshop, you’ll need

  • A laptop computer with an external mouse or graphics tablet (recommended)
  • Lightroom 5.3 installed on your computer (30 day trial version is fine)
  • A willingness to learn

Join us on June 7 – 8

Registration Fee: $ 197




The workshop will be taught at our home in Bethesda, Maryland. We’re limiting the workshop to six participants to make sure we can provide you with any individualized help you need.

Using Lightroom to Create the Photos that Express Your Vision

This workshop is designed for people who are ready to take their photo editing to the next level. You should be comfortable with using Lightroom’s Library Module and the global adjustment tools (Crop, Spot Removal Tool, Basic Panel, HSL Panel) in the Develop Module. You should have a sense of what you what to say with your photos – but may not know how to edit your photos to share your vision.

If you aren’t comfortable using the global commands for editing in Lightroom, you may want to take my Introduction to Lightroom workshop (link to September workshop page) before taking this one. We’ll do a quick review of some of the topics from my Introduction to Lightroom workshop during this workshop but will not be discussing them in detail.
