get grounded in lightroomIt is time to get your hands dirty in Lightroom.

This workshop is for those intimidated by Lightroom or those who just don’t know where to start. Maybe you are self-taught in Lightroom but your gut says you aren’t using the program to its full potential.

This 4-week, intensive workshop covers all the features you need to know in Lightroom to give your photos a clean, consistent, and polished style.

No more guessing how to create a matte black & white look, or how to enhance the sharpness of the eyes in your most recent shot. At the end of this workshop you will not only be  able to import and organize  images succesfully, but you will be trained how to edit them to their full potential. Kristy is a master at teaching you how to “see” what needs to happen in an edit prior to toying around with all of those editing sliders. Literally, there is no more guess work! Kristy is delighted to share with you her personal workflow process from start to finish. (Can you believe it only takes her two hours to edit a session from top to bottom?)

Kristy is with you for 4 solid weeks to personally guide you through Lightroom. Through weekly homework with feedback from Kristy, you will discover your own editing tendencies and improvement as she personalizes your Lightroom look.

Course Requirements:

Students must have access to Lightroom. All videos/demos will be taught using Version 5 of Lightroom

If you are using Lightroom 4, there are only some small differences. However, Lightroom 3 or older has significant differences, most importantly to the Develop Module where the sliders got a full makeover. If you are not ready to buy Lightroom 5, I recommend that you download the trial version from Adobe for free here.

You must love pretty pictures, and you must be a nice person.

Your Instructor

kristy chapmanBased out of Canada’s national capital – Ottawa, Ontario, Kristy is a natural light photographer.

This lover of photo editing is primarily a Lightroom user dedicated to sharing her knowledge with others. She will tell anyone who will listen about the amazing power of Lightroom and how it can be your ultimate editing tool.

Her super-friendly attitude and obvious love-affair with Lightroom makes her easy to approach with those editing questions you have. She’s your girl. She’s got your back. She’s also happy to chat about shoe sales and Etsy finds, so don’t hesitate to contact her. When she’s not chasing around her toddler son or watching Netflix marathons with her husband (Have you seen Orange is the New Black?), she can be found behind a camera capturing life’s moments.

Do you have specific questions about whether this course is for you? You can reach Kristy here. (She’s also open to hearing about your favorite Etsy shops!)
