Lightroom editing and workflow course.

This course is aimed at those of you who are working photographers, either full or part time. The course aims to help you develop a workflow and editing process in Adobe Lightroom which will let you spend less time behind the computer and more time doing what we do best – taking photographs. If your a hobby photographer who wants to learn about image editing then this course as it stands probably isn’t the best for you. One of my other image editing courses is far better suited

Course Overview.

The course is taught on a 1:1 basis and is run at my office in Twickenham. The course is four hours long and pretty intensive for that time. Because the course is taught on a 1:1 basis then we can tailor it slightly for your needs. Because we’ll use your images from one of your photoshoots everything  will be directly relevant to you. Of course you’ll be able to take your edited images home after the course.

The course concentrates on two of the modules in Lightroom. We’ll touch briefly on the others, but the course concentrates mainly 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.
