This workshop builds on the skills learned in Lightroom 1 - Getting started. Focusing on image development, you'll learn more about the power of non-destructive image enhancement and localised adjustments.
As with Lightroom 1 - Getting started, you will bring and work on your own computer using your own images (or our sample ones). We’ll be limiting the workshop to a small group, with plenty of specialist guidance. We have one of the best Lightroom teachers who’ll help you move your skills to the next level.
Who Should Attend This workshop is for you if you have attended Lightroom 1 - Getting Started or already have the skills covered. If in doubt attend both to be sure you have not missed any important tips.
You will build on your core fundamental knowledge of the Lightroom workflow and get benefits you may never have realised were there. Together these two workshops guide you in building a robust and efficient digital workflow and image management system. We help you avoid common pitfalls made by many users.

  • What is Lightroom?

    Lightroom is the number one digital image workflow system for amatuer and professional photographers. The Lightroom workflow covers everything from download to enhancement and output, providing you with powerful and efficient digital image management and processing.
    It should be noted that Photoshop is an extra tool-set that adds to what can be done with Lightroom. Both are available as part of the Adobe “Creative Cloud’ system. If you do not yet have Lightroom it can be download as a free 7-day trial from the Adobe website
  • Class Size

    We believe that working in a smaller group provides the best possible learning outcomes. Our one-day workshops provide a tutor to student ratio of 1:5 or better. Group size is limited to 10, and with a group of 6 or more an assistant will be present to make sure everyone receives the attention they need.
