Adobe® Lightroom® for Beginners | Darkroom Detroit
SYNCHRONOUS ONLINE FORMAT

Sat 06 June 2020 | 1:00 to 5:00pm | UP & RUNNING

COURSE DESCRIPTION — Adobe Lightroom Classic is a powerful photography editing and management application that has a mystifying reputation. This beginner-level, online experience gets participants up and running in Lightroom, featuring important core concepts and workflow strategies. Those seeking moral and technical support to manage an existing Lightroom catalog are welcome to join this workshop too, so that peculiar "The file could not be found" error message goes away.

We examine creative image processing tools & techniques in addition to batch-processing numerous images. The most commonly used tasks such as white balancing, retouching, gradients, and other local adjustments are addressed.

We export newly processed images from Lightroom and discuss various file formats [JPG, PSD, or TIF] that best support the future use of an image. The instructor presents several demonstrations, but accomodates screen sharing time with participants to resolve questions about their own images and catalogs. Participants are required to have a computer with Lightroom Classic installed to successfully complete the course.

What does "synchronous online format" mean? Synchronous online learning uses video-conferencing technology [zoom] to create real-time learning environments. The private, virtual classroom allows participants and instructor to dynamically interact with Photoshop demonstrations via screen sharing, enabling anyone to literally point to things they have questions about, and to get instant answers. Synchronous online learning requires all participants to show up at the same days and times posted, instead of watching pre-recorded videos.
