Lightroom 5 Essentials


I’m very excited to be offering this course, especially with the support of my friend and phellow photog phanatic Gigi Peek.

This is an introductory course designed for students getting started with the program or who have been using it for a while and feel they have gaps in their understanding.

Students will come away with a great foundation in the understanding of file management, workflow, image processing and sharing – all the things needed to get started using Lightroom.
