Event Details

This workshop takes place once a week for two consecutive weeks, Tuesdays June 17th & 24th from 6pm-10pm.

Many photographers are finding Adobe Lightroom to be the perfect tool for organizing, processing and manipulating your images. This 2-day hands-on Lightroom class will help you you take control of your digital photography workflow. Discover the most efficient method for downloading images into Lightroom and organizing them. Quickly import and manage your photo collection in a library that makes finding and editing your photos easy. Learn the best way to make global and local color and tonal corrections to your images and take advantage of new world-class noise reduction capabilities. Convert images to black and white, as well as add tonal overlays, edge effects and film grain textures. You will also learn how to configure the FTP settings in the web module so that you can create stunning web galleries with the click of a button. This class takes place in our state of the art computer lab where each student is assigned a  27-inch iMac 2.7GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 equipped with an Intuos graphics tablet. You do not need to bring a laptop.

Topics Covered on First Session:

  • Library module: Setting Up Lightroom: The Right Way from the Start
  • Importing Images:  From card and hard drive
  • The Develop module: Editing Your RAW, TIFF and JPEG Images like a Pro
  • Export options: Creating presets for specific jobs, using the new emailing feature within Lightroom 5 or using Publish Services.

Topics Covered on Second Session:

  • Using Lightroom for Global Adjustments:  Exposure, curves, split tones, sharpening and noise reduction
  • Using Lightroom for Selective Adjustments: Spoting tool, selective brush (masking), graduated filters
  • Radial Gradient:  Emphasize important parts of your image with more flexibility and control. The Radial Gradient tool lets you create off-center vignette effects, or multiple vignetted areas within a single image.
  • Advanced Healing Brush: Make your images spotless with a single brush stroke. Adjust the size of the brush and move it in precise paths. Unwanted objects and flaws— even those with irregular shapes like threads—just disappear.
  • Using Lightroom 5 with Photoshop (photoshop is not required for this class)
  • The Web module: Showing Your Work To Clients or Friends
  • Print module: Finally, the Print!

Refunds and Cancellation

Our goal is to provide a fun and professional learning environment that fosters a positive experience and builds a strong relationship with Samy's Camera customers.  Unless otherwise noted, all classes require advance registration due to limited seating and/or availability. Samy's EDU makes the decision to run a class based on the attendance level 48 hours prior to the class.  Because of this, we can only offer a refund if you notify us by sending an email to 48 hours before your class.  If you fail to provide email notification or if you cancel less than 48 hours prior to the class all monies will be forfeit and you will not receive a refund. On occasion we may cancel a class because of low enrollment and/or unforeseen professional conflict on the part of the instructor. Should this be the case, all monies will be refunded in full.
