One Day Lightroom Workshops In Ramsgate, Kent.
9:00am - 5:00pm
What is the Lightroom Training Course about?
Most modern DSLR and Mirrorless Digital Cameras are capable of taking high resolution RAW images (ie. Full resolution images without any camera adjustments or compression). Lightroom is an image processing software platform that allows you to get the best out of the RAW images from your digital camera.
Lightroom is different from Photoshop and streamlines the editing process with powerful but easy to learn adjustments and batch processing capabilities and has a powerful organisational module for cataloguing and organising your digital images. It sets the industry standard for image editing and is a one stop shop for editing and cataloguing digital images.
It is best to think of digital photography as a two part process; capturing the image and then processing or editing your captured image. Editing your images is an essential part of being a creative photographer. It allows you to interpret and fine-tune your artistic vision in either full colour or B&W. Adobe Lightroom is the software editing platform of choice for digital photographers, it allows you to edit, organise and share images from any digital camera.
Wether you are new to photography (Beginners welcome) or not, this workshop is ideal for those interested in getting the best out of their RAW camera images.
