Adobe Lightroom Sessions
Lightroom training for Photographers (Beginners / Intermediate)
Have you taken hundreds of pictures on your last holiday trip? Do you wish you could edit and perfect your photos in a fast intuitive way, then efficiently organise and share them? Then my Adobe Lightroom for Photographers one-to-one session is what you’re looking for.
This will include how to name and organise your files, followed by an introduction to the Lightroom interface. We will then go on to take a look at the fundamental principles and processes of Lightroom, followed by a variety of hands on guided and individual practice.

My Lightroom for Photographers tuition has two goals: first, to teach you how to organise and label the hundreds of digital images that you have, and second to introduce you to the extremely intuitive and creative editing interface that Lightroom offers. We will take a look at all aspects of the standard digital workflow: focusing on importing, organising, editing and then exporting and sharing your images.
We will start from the beginning by first developing an understanding of image formats (JPEG v. RAW) and the fundamentals of the digital image – the meaning of pixels and dynamic range which are vital to learning post-processing.
A Lightroom session outline for a beginner:
1) Getting to know the interface - an overview of having a ‘workflow’.
Organising the original files on your hard drive.
Learning my folder structure system for maximising organisation - never lose a file again!
Create a mirrored folder system, so your Lightroom matches your hard drive.
2) The Library Module (Getting organised!)
Organising and tagging images
Using collections, keywords and filters
Comparing and rating your pictures
Making selections to determine what you will edit
3) The Develop Module (Getting Creative!)
Get to know the incredible flexibility of Lightroom’s most important module. The intuitive image correction and enhancement interface allows precise adjustments as well as creative improvisations.
Change the composition and the aspect ratio of your images
Crop your images to reveal their full potential
Turn them into black-and-white images or adjust their colour spectrum
Apply creative adjustments to make your images come to life in unexpected ways
I’ll discuss the principles of image analysis and methods of non-destructive global and local adjustments of exposure, contrast and colours. I’ll talk about the importance of presets and how to use them productively and efficiently to automate processes.
4) Publishing Images (Using and sharing your images!)
Lightroom offers numerous options to export and share your images, be it on social media, preparing an online photo book or saving and uploading your photos in various formats. We’ll have a look at publishing your images for the web and for print.
