This class covers the basics of photo organization and editing with the powerful program Adobe  Lightroom Classic.

This course is designed to get you up and running FAST in Adobe Lightroom Classic. In this  four week information packed class, you will learn how to import, organize and perform simple  and effective editing processes that will let you produce beautiful adjustments to your pictures.  The last two weeks of the class go into more advanced editing techniques and include a deep  dive into the use of presets to speed up your organization and work flow. 


During this class, you’ll learn the tools to give your images the color, detail, and mood that will  make them pop. You’ll learn quick and easy editing tools with Adobe Lightroom Classic that will  bring out the details, color, and contrast you saw in the scene when you first envisioned your  photo. 

This intensive hands-on, four part online workshop will help you master Lightroom Classic’s  basics, and some of its most sophisticated features. This class will give you an overview and  working knowledge of this powerful, yet easy to use software in easy-to-understand lessons.

“I just wanted to thank you for another wonderful class. I have to confess that each week when I read the new assignment, my first reaction was mild panic and a deep certainty that I would not be able to produce anything worthwhile that fit within the parameters you had set. But before I knew it, the ideas started to flow, and I quickly became obsessed (no, that isn’t too strong a word!) with exploring the possibilities. I can honestly say that the photos I produced in response to your assignments are among my favorites. Thanks for bringing out a creative side I didn’t know I had!”

Understanding Color

“Thank you so very much for this course! It’s allowed me to take the blinders off and present my images for what I want them to be without being a slave to the “reality” of the camera. I would also add that in conjunction with your printing course, this has been the most useful course I’ve ever taken. Your notes are more than comprehensive and your comments and critiques are direct, clear, and always directed to the improvement of the art.”

” I want to thank you for this class and for your patience and availability to answer all of my questions. I have learned very much through this class. I have used LR in the past, but mostly for editing images. I now have a better grasp in the organization of my images, an even better understanding of editing images, and an understanding of the value of presets. I still have a lot to learn, but this has put me on the road to be able to improve my photography. Again, thank you! ”
