Introduction to Lightroom – 125JC – $125
Instructor: Jack Cascio
Choose from available sessions
4 week course – 

New dates coming soon!

Class Limit: 5 Students

Now that you’re feeling pretty good with your shooting as well as maybe not such a good feeling racking up hundreds or even thousands of photos, how do you find them? Let’s get organized with folders, files and keywords.

Your images don’t look as brilliant as you saw them just before you pressed the shutter? Learn how to make corrections and/or changes beyond those capabilities offered by our cameras. You will be delighted bringing your images to the visual level you viewed them, just before you hit the shutter. This is where you begin to have ‘fun vs frustration’! We will be focusing on the ‘Library’ and ‘Develop’ modules.

A laptop, though not necessarily needed, is very strongly suggested. You can download a free trial version of Adobe Lightroom just prior to our first class or you may download during our first session.
