Beyond The Basics

Lightroom 2:  Beyond the Basics is the next step to becoming a Lightroom expert!

Adobe Lightroom has quickly become the most powerful, professional, and easy to use editing and image organizer from a photographer’s point of view.  It has become the industry standard for serious photographers and this two-day course is for photographers of all genres and all skill levels.



During this course, students quickly develop the skills to manage and edit your images.

Students will learn how to manage and edit images using hands-on training. The instructor will provide images and notes so the class can work together in addition to one-on-one time with instructor to work on their own images.

Students explore best practices, library cataloging, image evaluation, image enhancement, slideshows, photo book creation, and more. The instructors provide practice images and then students will work images that they feel most passionate about— theirs. Your own images are much more fun to work on and when finished, the results are impressive.  Students leave with confidence and proven workflows to create stunning images. Your images are organized, cataloged and filed, naming each folder, so you can go back at a later time and finish your project. Its a great way to focus your attention  to just that group of images and what was shot.
