Briefly...

The raw images produced by your camera have enormous potential, and to be able to exploit it, you need to master a retouching software ; adjusting exposure, adjusting white balance, tone, contrast, correcting aberrations are just a few of the many operations that Lightroom will allow you to perform.

Lightroom Level 1 Workshop: Managing the essentials

3h

The managing of an editing software is a necessary extension to the shooting; thanks to the use of a program such as Lightroom, the photographer will be able to fully exploit his raw images (Raw).

Adobe Lightroom software allows you to manage all the post-production stages of a photograph ; from importing and organizing images, through their retouching, to finally exporting them for printing (photo print, book) or digital presentation (web, slide show).

The raw images that your camera is capable of producing have enormous potential, and to be able to exploit it, you need to master a retouching software ; adjusting exposure, adjusting white balance, tone, contrast, correcting aberrations are a few operations, among many other possibilities, that Lightroom will allow you to perform...

This retouching phase is therefore an essential part of the photographer's work. Imagine a baker not knowing how to bake his bread; his dough can be a quality one, but his work will always remain unfinished (and indigestible)... The same goes for the photographer not knowing how to retouch; his chain of work is amputated, he cannot perfect and embellish his work.

During this first level of learning, you will be taught :

- The use and the operaring logic of such a software

- The different image importation methods in Lightroom

- The images sorting methods within the software

- The different retouching tools available

- The different methods of exporting images from Lightroom

 

At the end of this workshop, the general operation of the Lightroom software will be understood and its main tools will be known; you will then be able to use the program autonomously.

However, mastering the art of retouching requires a higher level of learning, which is taught during the "Lightroom Level 2 Workshop" ; knowing what to retouch on an image, and getting the desired result requires practice and the advices of an expert.

 

*Please note that you need to bring a laptop computer to this class.*
