Online Learning Class via Zoom

This Intermediate Lightroom Classic course continues where the Beginning Lightroom Classic class left off. Using Adobe Lightroom Classic, we will explore, in depth, some of the topics we already covered and learn new techniques as well.

In the first sessions we will review importing and how to make metadata presets to add personalized contact, copyright, and shoot session subject info to photos as they are imported. We will also learn how to create Import Module presets that can be used to streamline the importing process.

In the Develop module, we will cover range masking with local adjustment brushes, as well as creating custom brush presets for retouching. We will also learn how to make color profiles for our cameras (requires the purchase of the X-Rite Passport Color Checker system – which sells for around $100). Through homework assignments, students will shoot RAW photos for processing in class including learning how to make a series of bracketed exposures that Lightroom Classic can blend into a single High Dynamic Range (HDR) image with extraordinary detail in the highlights and in the shadows. We will also learn how to blend a series of overlapping images into a wide panorama!

While we can’t do any printing in an online class, we will cover the overall concepts of printmaking and using ICC profiles to improve the quality of prints. We will learn how to make a Soft Proof copy of our developed image for use in printing.

Sometimes, Lightroom Classic does not have enough editing or retouching tools necessary to complete a project. We will learn how easy it is to take an image from Lightroom Classic directly into Photoshop for more advanced Editing, and then easily and automatically save the edited version of the image back into Lightroom.

We will also cover Lightroom Classic’s Book module to learn how to make a great book from both photos and text, right within Lightroom. Students can then upload their finished book directly from Lightroom Classic to the Blurb online print site and have their finished book returned to them in a few days.

Web galleries are a great way to exhibit photos to an online audience. We will create a web photo gallery in the Lightroom Classic Web module.

If time permits, we will also learn how to make a slideshow, complete with a music soundtrack using Lightroom Classic’s Slideshow module.

Lightroom Classic is a fun and powerful tool for enhancing and sharing your best images. This workshop will help develop the skills needed to take digital photography to the next level.
