March 31, 2019
This is an interactive & hands-on workshop for you to learn all the basic tools of Adobe Lightroom so you can leave ready to edit your images-achieving exactly what you’ve been imagining! We will be going over how to use the program overall, moving into image editing & Lightroom presets then how to perfectly curate all your images to fit your editing style. You will also be provided with all the tools & tricks I use to perfectly edit my images like removing spots on skin & short cut buttons to save you tons of time. My hopes is that you will leave with images that are enhanced and Instagram ready!
Once I have introduced you to the basics of lightroom, we will jump right into practicing and spend the second half of the workshop editing your very own images and going over how each one of you will best achieve your desired editing look.
This workshop is perfect for the business owner wanting to achieve beautiful content & product images, for the mama who loves to capture her kiddos & everyday life and the aspiring photographer who’s ready to build their editing style.

This workshop will be partnered with the Intro to Photography workshop hosted on March 24 to provide attendees with full guidance to shoot their camera manually and create beautiful imagery to edit on March 31.
