This is a beginning workshop for the person who has never used Adobe Lightroom software or the individual, who is having difficulties with the program, and would like to have an experienced guide walk them through the startup process and thoroughly
explain Lightroom’s features and tools.

The workshop begins with an explanation of how Lightroom works, with an eye towards teaching you best practices for managing and organizing your catalog of photographs for a stable trouble free workflow. Also discussed is how to refine and visually perfect
your photographs, and backup and archive your catalog to prevent image loss. This workshop is lead by an experience photographer and educational professional who has taught hundreds of people to use the program successfully, since it was introduced in 2007.
