Adobe Lightroom 6 

Creating Great Photographs with Adobe Lightroom 6

 A Course from the Image City Photography Gallery

Thursdays, September 24, October 1, 8, 15, 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:

  1.  importing images into your computer so that you can easily find them at a later time

  2.  selecting the best images using an organized process

  3. creating a fine digital image and then

  4. making a fine digital print or posting on the Internet. 

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 September 24, October 1, 8, 15.

We will meet at the historic Pittsford Flour Mill, 15 Schoen Place, Pittsford.

The price for this course will be $ 165 and be limited to a maximum of eight photographers.

Please contact Steve Levinson (steven.levinson@gmail.com, 330.1490) for more information.
