Lightroom Workshops for Photographers

Small-Group Lightroom Workshops with Martin Addison

Adobe Lightroom has become an indispensable tool for all photographers whether professional or enthusiasts. It allows you to import, organise and develop your images efficiently and easily, preparing them for printing, exporting as digital files and more.

This workshop takes a hands on approach, you bring a laptop with a current version of Lightroom installed and you will be led through the key processes in Lightroom, learning as you try each step. You will get a prepared Lightroom catalog when you arrive, complete with a selection of tutorial images in structured folders, together with presets and templates for you to work with while you are on the workshop and for you to take away with you when you leave. This is valuable as you can remind yourself what you have learnt when you return home.
