    The Exploring Lightroom workshop is designed for photographers who are starting their journey with Adobe Lightroom, or who have used the program a bit, but want clarity and support for future development. Lightroom is a very powerful software program that can help you to stay organized, while providing tools for printing and web output.

    Workshop details:
    This two-day workshop is a general intro to Adobe Lightroom, library functions, setting up an image catalog, importing images, creating import templates, and tips for keywording. The workshop will also cover using Lightroom to improve your images, with adjustments in exposure, color balance, highlights, shadows, contrast and many more attributes along with output options: export, print, web. This workshop will use Lightroom Classic, either Mac or PC.
