Lightroom 6 is one of the most intuitive programs for photographers to (i) import captured images, (ii) set up a Data Asset Management workflow (no more lost images), (iii) work on RAW and other image files to undertake global and local enhancements and (iv) export files for final adjustments (if required) into Photoshop. This Workshop will release the awesome power of this amazing program and you will probably find you are spending less time in Photoshop as a result. The Workshop will focus mainly on the Develop and Library modules in Lightroom as photographers will be concentrating most of their time on these.
 

This seminar is suitable for photographers who wish to ‘start from scratch’ and quickly reach a working proficiency in Lightroom. Comprehensive handouts will be provided for reference during the course and for revision afterwards.
 

As this is a small group (3-6 participants), hands-on workshop (you can bring your laptop), you will receive very personal tuition to ensure you maximise your learning outcomes.
