Capturing the image is just the beginning! Take your images to the next level and make them look their best by entering the “digital darkroom” and using the processing capabilities of Adobe Lightroom. In this course students will be immersed in this powerful software, learning to use and customize Lightroom’s image organization system and working with the vast array of image development tools, allowing them to take complete control of processing and achieve the highest possible professional quality in their final images. In addition to standard processing techniques, students will also learn advanced black and white image conversion and printing, toning and a variety of creative effects. Additional lessons include: color-managed printing directly from Lightroom, including multiple image layouts and contact sheets with captions; making slideshows with sound and text, and creating galleries of images for the web. Using this single remarkable software, students will learn to organize, process and output their images in a completely new and efficient way. Throughout the 10-week workshop, step by step instructions and hands-on exercises working with their own images and hard drives, will provide students with direct experience using this powerful software and allow them to unlock the true potential of their own photographs.
