This is a 2 session class occurring on consecutive Saturday’s: July 20th & 27th from 10am-2pm.
Have you been using Lightroom, but feel like you’re not getting the most out of it? Natasha Calzatti will show you all the tricks of the trade!
How to customize that workflow to fit your specific needs. You’ll also learn about automating settings, plugins, that will help you work more efficiently. Learn how the adjustment sliders affect your images, how best to use the histogram, and how to fix your problem images. Then push your retouching beyond the basics to accomplish complex retouching jobs, explore your options for adjusting localized areas within your images, and skin retouching. Learn to organize your images so you can easily find them later, and see a complete workflow from import to printing or web output. Once your images are organized and adjusted, extend Lightroom with creating books or slideshows, and learn to print and post images on the web. social media or export to Photoshop for further manipulation.
