Mastering Adobe Lightroom with Michael Pliskin
This workshop focuses on the most essential features of Lightroom with the needs of the photographer in mind. Students will learn how to import, sort, organize and enhance their digital images quickly and efficiently.
In addition to the software's new developing capabilities, participants will learn how to create a photo book directly from within Lightroom, as well as track shooting locations on a map using GPS coordinates. Using their own images, students will learn how to make slideshows, web galleries, as well as output JPEGs for sending in emails or for uploading to Facebook and other websites – without ever leaving Lightroom. Further topics will include ways to retouch portraits and other images without using Photoshop, how to get the most from RAW files, new features of the adjustment brushes for selective white balance and noise reduction, and more.
Hands-on training and close instructor supervision reinforces concepts presented through lecture and demonstration.
This course will be taught in JDPW's digital lab. Students will have their own workstation equipped with a 27" iMac computer loaded with Lightroom 4. Bamboo Pen & Touch digital tablets will be available if needed. Although participants will be learning using Lightroom 4, the skills taught are cross-platform to earlier versions of Lightroom.
