Event Details

Lightroom seems to become more and more powerful with every passing release, and now can do 90% of what 90% of photographers need to do with their digital images.

In this workshop, we will show you how to import your camera RAW images and organize them into a searchable archive using the Library module; and how to use the Develop module to apply the right adjustments (adjust exposure, color balance, noise, etc) to those images. Nice thing about Lightroom is that it does all this in a non-destructive way - your original raw files are left untouched; all adjustments are separately recorded.

We will demonstrate how to get the best out of your RAW files; images that you may have given up for overexposed (going by the blinking highlight warning on your LCD) will be shown to have lot of useful information in the highlights. In fact, I will often deliberately overexpose a little. So you will learn not only Lightroom in this workshop, but perhaps to get the best exposures out of your digital camera as well!


Requirements: A laptop and power strip as well as any version of Lightroom. If you do not have Lightroom, download the free trial version from the Adobe website THE DAY OF THE WORKSHOP. The trial is only good for 30 days and it needs to be good through the Workshop. Please also bring 2-3 photos on your laptop that you would like to work on but do not import them into Lightroom as we will learn how to do that in class.

NYC Digital Photography Workshops

New to photography? Know your way around a camera but your skills need some fine tuning or perhaps you are looking to take your photography to the next level? With so many resources now available out there, where do you start? New York City alone hosts over 100 groups on photography instruction, but do they have almost a century of photography experience to back that up? And more importantly, the drive to share that knowledge with you? Our experts in the field, all professional working photographers, can help guide you through the process – both creative and technical – of making an image. NYC Digital Photography Workshops creates fun, yet informative, workshops - both group & private - that spark creativity and technical know-how with or without having the latest and greatest gear. We offer over 120 workshops on everything from how to use your new DSLR, manual settings and composition to lighting, fashion and street photography. You will learn real-world photography tips, tricks and techniques both in the studio and in the field. We aim to build your confidence as a photographer all while giving you the skills you need to succeed as a photographer. At NYCDPW, you will be part of a community of photographers, from novice to expert, where you can hone your craft. Our instructors, themselves working photographers, have walked in your shoes. They speak your language and understand your challenges. Yes, intuitive instruction that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Register today…we look forward to helping YOU become a better photographer!

You may sign up for a free membership to our Workshop group as well as our free newsletter at: www.nycdpw.com. By signing up for the free newsletter, you will receive notifications of new Workshop topics being offered and a link to RSVP for that Workshop.
