Once again we’re bringing our Lightroom workshop to the Bay Area!

Lightroom has become the software tool of choice for many photographers because it’s simple, yet powerful – easy to use, but sophisticated enough to get great results with almost any image.

This intensive, hands-on, two-and-a-half-day, classroom-style workshop will help you master Lightroom’s basics, and take full advantage of Lightroom’s most sophisticated features. You’ll learn, step-by-step, how to process images from beginning to end, and make decisions along the way that convey your original vision for the photograph. You’ll learn how to use all of Lightroom’s tools, from the simplest to the most sophisticated, in easy-to-understand, hands-on lessons.

Here’s a partial list of the topics covered:
– Importing images into Lightroom, and avoiding common pitfalls
– Editing and keywording
– Raw image workflow
– Finding the perfect white balance
– Balancing contrast with Lightroom’s Highlights and Shadows tools
– Mastering curves
– Dodging and burning with the Adjustment Brush
– Sharpening and noise reduction – making large prints from small cameras
– Converting to black and white
– Automation – syncing adjustments across multiple images
– Blending exposures with Lightroom’s HDR Merge and Panorama Merge
– Exporting
– Printing basics

Students should have some familiarity with Lightroom. You’ll need to bring your own laptop for this class.
