Lightroom Training

At a Glance


How many times have you taken a shot a thought, "Why doesn't my shot look like theirs?" Believe it or not, getting it right in camera is only part of the process.

Knowing and understanding how to use editing tools is important if you want your images to stand out. From basic colour corrections, to complete scene manipulations it is all possible if you know how. Lightroom is a great tool for all photographers to use for so many reasons, but the first and foremost is its powerful editing ability.

Imagine Lightroom as a modern day darkroom. Where images were manipulated, enhanced and tweaked to taste and that's all Lightroom is - a digital darkroom.

Topics covered:

  • Understanding Lightroom

  • Using the interface

  • File management

  • Colour correction

  • Exposure

  • B&W vs Colour

  • Sharpening and noise control

  • Presets

  • Exporting for Web and other sources

What to expect:

I will be your instructor throughout, versed in many forms of photography. As it is 1-2-1 you will have my full attention and able to move at your pace. As with any course, notes are provided, but I find it useful to take your own notes in your own words as this often helps later.

A version of Lightroom.
Pen and paper for note taking.

To offer you the best opportunity to learn I will be operating from the comfort of my Nottingham home studio, where everything you will need is available.
