Creating Great Photographs with Adobe Lightroom 5
A Course from the Image City Photography Gallery
Wednesdays, May 6, 13, 20, and 27, 2015.
Pittsford Flour Mill, 15 Schoen Place, Pittsford
If you are like me, you don’t want to spend your time learning and using an expensive, complex software package to import and optimize your photographs; BUT want to use your time using a simple, powerful and intuitive tool to produce stunning photographs. You can experiment fearlessly with color, exposure and more without overwriting your original images.
After taking this lecture and workshop course, you will be have a workflow (or standardized process) that you can efficiently follow for every photograph you make:
Time will be available to practice and discuss both provided images and images from your own portfolio. RAW is the preferred original (camera) format for images, though high quality JPEGS will also work.
Participants should be familiar with the basics of digital cameras, photography and transferring files to your computer. They will also need to have or borrow a laptop computer (Apple or PC) for the course. Software is available from Adobe on a free, one month trial. (Please do not download this software until the day before the course, so that it will be available for the four sessions.)
Classes will meet on four Thursday nights (from 7 - 9pm, though I will stay after for individual questions) on May 6, 13, 20 and 27.
We will meet at the historic Pittsford Flour Mill, 15 Schoen Place, Pittsford.
Please contact Steve Levinson (firstname.lastname@example.org, 330.1490) for more information.

Dates: the 1st Wednesday of Each Month
Each month we enjoy a good turnout for Image City Critiques, our program at Image City to provide participants an opportunity to engage in a friendly, constructive, and positive critique and review of their photographs. The sessions are held on the first Wednesday of the month. Join us.
Images are submitted digitally at least one week prior to the session. Contact Gil at email@example.com for information on what images are suggested for a particular session. For January 8 session send to Don Menges firstname.lastname@example.org
