Creative Lightroom Workflow - Day long Workshop

This event has passed. Its description is archived below.

Lightroom has been designed as a comprehensive tool for full digital photography workflow. It can handle download, organization, image optimization, as well as the output to file, print, books and the web. This workshop explores how to approach that process in an orderly and manageable way, with an emphasis on maximizing your creativity inside the application.

It's common to hear Lightroom users say they love the program, but that they only use a small portion of its capabilities. In many cases that's because they don't quite understand the way the program was meant to be used. The program has been designed from the ground up as a guided workflow tool. As someone who has helped guide the development of Lightroom from the very beginning, Peter can shed light on how the program was intended to function - and how to maximize your creative output.

You'll learn the structure of Lightroom - how to organize a catalog and how to organize your files - but you will also learn how to work more creatively within the program. This is really about linking the capability to sort and organize your images, with the power to make them look great, and the ability to make finished products.

We will cover the following subjects:

  • Understanding the catalog concept
  • How to best create and manage catalogs
  • Importing photos
  • Keywords and Collection - two very powerful organizational tools
  • Develop, general use - The general work-order for Develop module
  • Develop, deep dive - A look at some of the most powerful tools in the program
  • Streamlined Export - using the power of presets
  • Making a book - how does this thing work?
  • Printing capabilities - single images, contact sheets, and picture packages
  • Customizing slideshows
  • Exporting your creations as PDF
  • Exporting Galleries to your iPhone
