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.
- How to import your images.
- Where to store your images.

Already comfortable with this? Check out our Intermediate Photo Editing: Lightroom class that covers more advanced editing such as local adjustments, detailed color editing and other advanced features.
This class is perfect for anyone that loves to take photographs from beginner to long time 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.
- A computer with Adobe Lightroom Classic CC installed and working.
- A note pad and pen to take notes if you would like to or a tablet or computer for taking notes.
You may bring a laptop if you want to follow along with your own images; however, the instructor will not be able to provide computer, OS or application support.

About the Instructor
Scott is a photographer based out of Cedar Park, Texas. He has a studio in his home and runs Scott D Photography with his wife, Jennifer. Scott fell in love with photography about 10 years ago while working in Chicago and began the long journey of learning all he could. His favorite subject continues to be the concept of "urban decay" and his business focuses on family and children portraiture.
Scott loves two things about photography. First, you can never learn it all. Second, the industry is brimming with other professionals willing and enthusiastic about guiding you through your next photographic adventure. Teaching has always been a passion for Scott, and he's thrilled to continue that passion.
