Lightroom editing and workflow course for photographers
Many people have been asking, so I’m introducing a number of courses over the coming months, some of which are aimed at photographers and some of which are aimed at those of you who are just picking up a DSLR and want to know how to get the best from it.
The first of these courses is Lightroom Editing and Workflow and ideal for those of you who are working either in a full or part time business as a photographer. We’ll look at your existing workflow and how you can modify that workflow to speed up your editing no end, allowing you to get out from behind the computer and get more time for doing what we all love – taking photographs.
The course is only available on a 1:1 basis and is four hours long, run at my office in Twickenham. Because the course is run on a 1:1 basis we can tailor it too your exact needs. Because we’ll use your images, from one of your photoshoots on the day, everything on the day will be directly relevant to you. You’ll be able to take your edited images away after the course.
The workshop concentrates on the library and develop modules of Lightroom using v4.x and how to use those modules for the greatest impact, both on the final product you send to your clients, and your workflow itself.
Although we’ll tailor the workshop for you a basic outline for is below.
What the modules in Lightroom are, and what each do.
The library module. Getting the best from it.
Structuring and organising your folders for optimal workflow.
LR Catalogs, collections, folders and smart collections . How they fit together and how to use them.

The develop module and getting the best from it.
How to use the histogram when editing.

The workshop is four hours long and pretty intensive for that time. Don’t expect an easy day, but do expect to come away with a far better idea of what you can achieve and how to make it work best for you. The four hour workshop is only £300 and taught exclusively on a 1:1 basis.
