Online Lecture & Local Class Details

Knowing how to take a photograph is only half the battle. Come join us and learn how to edit your photos to make them stand out like the pros do! Make sure to bring your laptop with Lightroom already installed so you can follow along and ask questions.
Ansel Adams did a great deal of his magic in the darkroom and that applies to us digital photographers today, but in the form of Lightroom- our digital darkroom. I have always been one to preach about getting the photo right in the camera, but that doesn’t mean I don’t make changes to them on the computer to really make the images POP!
This class is for those of you who wish to get the most out of their images, including organizing, backing up, basic editing and file formatting for print and web use.
