Lightroom Tuition

I recently had the pleasure of meeting members of the Northampton Inspire Camera Club to help them with some Lightroom tuition.

The majority of my Lightroom Workshop days are conducted for working photographers, so a rejig was necessary to make the tuition more relevant to the hobbyist.
It was a busy day with a lot of information to take in and a lot of questions answered. As usual though everyone left buzzing with all of the possibilities that have always been there but have just been out of sight. There is a mountain of information out on the web about Lightroom however there is no substitute to working through it live, together with someone who can show you around.

The great thing for me about Lightroom is the customization available to get Lightroom both looking and working how you want it to work for you. That is what I really hope people get out of the day, how to make the most of Lightroom’s presets and templates to make it work for them.

Discover the powerful organisational abilities of the Library module and the many advanced sorting and searching options. How to utilise collections to automatically keep track of all of your very best images.

Learn how to get the best out of your images with all of the many advanced tools to be found in the Develop module. How to create your own presets so that your favourite settings can be applied with just one click.

If you print your images, learn how to set up the print module to get the very best results when your images are printed. Whether you print yourself or outsource your printing your images will benefit from implementing the correct steps.

There will also be a little about colour management, creating .png files in Photoshop and how to find and back up the most important files you have in the heart of Lightroom.

I conduct these workshops in Northampton but am happy to travel if the costs are met. I like to work with small groups of 3 to 5 people and always have a couple of spare computers for people to use on the day if they do not have their own laptop. My standard Lightroom tuition day in Northampton is £80 per person. I am also available for one to one tuition, please get in touch for a quote for personal 1 to 1 Lightroom tuition.

Any Camera Clubs looking for a talk on Lightroom please get in touch, always happy to come along and talk on the areas of Lightroom that are of the most interest to your members.

Happy New Year. I am looking forward to 2014 immensely, I have a raft of new ventures and plans to put in place.

After the huge success of the Lightroom Training Days towards the end of 2013 I will be making them available to a wider audience in 2014. See HERE for more details. Along with this I have created a Youtube channel “Shedding Light on Lightroom” where I plan to add regular content to help everyone to get the best from Lightroom, check it out HERE and if this interests you then please subscribe to the channel so that you receive notification when new content is posted. I am also currently writing an outline for a beginners Training Day for Photoshop, I will be trialling this shortly.

If you would rather have my undivided attention for the day, it is possible to organise 1 to 1 instruction. If this is something that interests you get in touch and I can tailor a day to your needs.
