A brand new series of workshops from Joe Houghton - a week of Lightroom!


Zero prior knowledge of Lightroom - no problem!


Whatever your camera or newness to photography - this course will help you. This course assumes the participants have no knowledge of photography, Lightroom, editing or organising images. It is specifically aimed at the complete beginner, the tech novice, and will build confidence and capability, session by session. However, as with all of Joe's talks, there will be useful hints, tips and shortcuts for more experienced users too.


Session 1: Where do I start?

  • Installing Lightroom, Photoshop and the Creative cloud.

  • Getting images from your camera to your computer

  • Where will I store my photos and where will I back them up?

  • What can Lightroom do to my photos?


Session 2: A look around Lightroom

  • The Library module - your filing system.

  • The Develop module - your darkroom - where the magic happens!


Session 3: Let's start editing!

  • Glocal edits - making changes to your whole image.

  • Shots too bright or too dark? Fixing problems with exposure.

  • Images looking too blue or orange? Understanding and fixing colour temperature.
