Introduction to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Beginner Course

Tuesday Nights April 25th, May 2nd, 9th, and 16th, 2017 - 6 to 9 pm


Lightroom is a complex and difficult program to undertake on your own, but with some coaching you will be in love with this program very quickly. Lightroom is a very powerful program for organizing, optimizing, and enhancing your images while decreasing your post processing time.

This class is designed to introduce the beginning student to Lightroom and shooting and editing your images in the RAW or JPG format. Lightroom is the start of most professional photographer’s workflow, and is the ideal starting place for almost any photographer. This class will start at the beginners level and teach you how to properly setup and organize the program, customize it, edit your images, and export them for printing or use in web applications and social media.

The classroom setup will allow you to follow along with the instructor's demonstration on your own computer and progress into working on your own images with supervision from Jonathan.
