Getting to grips with... LIGHTROOM

Getting to grips with Lightroom

Coming up shortly will be another of my workshops, this time focussed on Lightroom.

Lightroom is the tool of choice for many photographers. However it can be daunting if you are unfamiliar with the interface. This workshop will remove the fear and walk you through the way I use Lightroom, helping you understand it better and how to get the most from it for you. 

In this workshop I will cover the most important modules - the library and develop module - explaining what they do and how. By breaking these areas down even further and exploring the layers within the modules you will get a much clearer picture of how to use Adobe Lightroom and get the best from your photographs.
