Learn how to organize, process and present your photos so they look their best.

Adobe Lightroom for Beginners

A workshop for photographers who are just beginning to use this useful program. 


 Adobe Lightroom will transform the way you work and help you become a better photographer. I can almost guarantee it! You will learn how to import your pictures from both your camera and your computer. You will work along with me on your laptop.  This is an efficient workflow that will get you back to what you like to do best... take pictures!

Below are just a few of the the topics we shall cover in Lightroom for Beginners:

  • Importing into "Library"
  • Processing in "Develop"
  • Intro to retouching
  • Showcasing in "Slide Show"  and "Book" modules
  • The powerful "Print" module
  • Storage and backup strategies

Note: I will be using Lightroom version 5 but this class is appropriate for users of LR3, and 4 as well. You will use your own laptop and follow along as we explore the program.

Jan Armor is a professional photographer with over three decades of experience in both image making and photo education. More about me on my website: http://www.armorphoto.com. 99% of the images you will see there have been processed in Lightroom.  Take a look!

Here's what others had to say about my Lightroom class:

It was a great pleasure to attend your Lightroom class and give my photography a giant boost. It was excellent in all respects, 5 stars. I would recommend it to anyone who uses the program. Thank You Very Much. -- Ken Dore

Do you remember I mentioned I was coming to your workshop because I wanted to learn more about the Print Module in Lightroom2? To that point  and as a result of your excellent teaching I have just completely redone all my Images - in the portfolio I showed you.  No need to respond but as a former teacher myself I always appreciated it when a former student acknowledged that they had learned something from me. Thanks, Jan -- David Pinkham

From Patty Weiss, retired teacher, grandmother, and avid amateur photographer: "I found the  Lightroom class to be what I expected and more. Lightroom is a software that is difficult to explore on one’s own. Jan Armor is a gifted teacher and guide through the interface of the software. He is able to guide students with varying computer and camera knowledge all at the same time, and in the same class."

And from experienced fine art photographer Eric Hovermale: "As a longtime Lightroom user, I cannot say enough about how useful your class was to me. In addition to learning much that I didn't know, I learned better and more efficient ways to accomplish what I've already been doing. I recommend your class to anyone who is already using or considering using Lightroom. If you're still processing your images in Photoshop and Bridge, there's a whole new world out there…"
