Join professional wildlife photographer and guide Jason Williams for an in depth look into how to organize, edit, process and better understand your digital images using Adobe Lightroom’s powerful features. This 2 day seminar will start by breaking down the world of digital photography and the underlying technologies that we rely on as modern photographers. With this foundation we will learn how to build a sound organizational platform, import and organize our images using best practices and create an effective workflow. We will explore some of the tools and techniques in the digital darkroom that will take your photography to the next level while learning some ‘quick and dirty’ tricks of the trade to speed up your workflow. The last segment of this seminar will focus on how to export your images for different uses and demystify the murky world of what file formats, color spaces and resolutions work best for different applications. This might be the most important part of the course! You can perfect every other step in creating a digital image but if you send a great image out processed incorrectly for the application that image can go from great to not so good in a hurry.
Though this seminar will use Adobe Lightroom throughout the class, the underlying technologies, techniques and strategies will often translate to other photo processing software. Whether you currently use Adobe Lightroom, are thinking about using it, or are using some other alternative – this class will proved you with ideas, strategies and tools to take your photography and images to the next level. This course is designed for beginner to intermediate photographers or for those wanting a look into the philosophy, workflow and techniques of a professional. This seminar will be limited to 30 students.
