Adobe Lightroom Classic for Beginners
with Josh Baker at Anderson Ln Location
with Michael Pliskin at South Location
Managing and editing your images as a new photographer can be daunting. How do you import your images? What basic editing should you do? How do you share the results with the world?

This class will jump start your image editing pipeline using Adobe Lightroom Classic CC. We will discuss the basics of workflow (something every photographer needs just a little of), and then jump into basic editing in Lightroom Classic CC including white balance, exposure, levels, and curves.
Students should bring their laptop and will be provided a set of images so they can “click along” with the instructor. Students are also welcome to work on their own images.
Please register early, within 5 days of the start date, to reduce the likelihood of course cancellation.

This class is perfect for anyone that loves to take photographs from beginner to longtime photographer. Adobe Lightroom is great at helping you organize your digital images so you can find them, share and enjoy them. There are many advantages to Adobe Lightroom over Photoshop. If you want to learn photo software I would suggest starting with Adobe Lightroom.
