Larry Citra and I have been discussing the possibility of putting on a Lightroom course.
The format would be a one day hands on workshop. The intention is that you would leave the workshop confidently able to get started with Lightroom, or even ready to look at some of its more advanced features.
We would cover at least the basics of each of the main Lr modules: Library, Develop, Map, Book, Slideshow, Print and Web. We would also show you some of the popular Add Ons particularly those from Nik (Google), OnOne Software and Topaz Labs.
If you have a laptop, you would be encouraged to bring it. If you have not already purchased and installed Lightroom 5, we’d encourage you to download the Trail version. You can purchase Lightroom directly from Adobe (as a digital download), from B & H Photo, Video and Pro Audio, or from Amazon. The latter is the best source if you want the disk.
We would plan the course for a weekend day, whichever was most popular.
And if the workshop was successful, we would consider offering another one that would cover many of the more advance features of Lightroom 5.
While there are many video resources available on the web to learn Lightroom 5, sometimes doing it in a group allows one to get questions answered immediately and therefore to move up the learning curve with fewer starts and stops.
Would you be interested in attending such a workshop, assuming that the date and time worked for you? Please express your interest, or ask any questions, by commenting on this post.
