File Management with Lightroom – Workshop

Adobe Lightroom – File Management

Adobe Lightroom is a photo file management and editing tool. There are several modules in lightroom, but arguably the “Library” module is the most important feature. In this workshop we will discuss everything you ever wanted to know about managing your files using Lightroom….even if you don’t know lightroom and don’t want it, you’ll learn about file types, naming, keywording, saving and backing up, and exporting for various uses such as printing or sharing on the web.

We won’t be getting into editing your images in this session, but you will learn enough about how Lightroom manages files that your introduction to editing (in a future workshop) will come a lot more easily.

 

Know Your Camera – workshop

This workshop is aimed at beginning photographers who want to learn the basics about their cameras, and getting the proper exposure.  The goal of the workshop is to introduce you to how your camera functions, and what the various controls on the camera do to affect the outcome.  We won’t be able to talk about the specific controls on every single camera, but since all cameras basically do the same thing we can address those issues.

Since space is limited these workshops require advance registration.  This is open to the public.

The workshop will cover shooting techniques, software alternatives, and manual blending methods.

Photoshop Basics Workshop

Never used Photoshop, but want to try it? Old hand, and want a refresher? This workshop will get you into the basics of photoshop from understanding the various panels and tools, to the basics of layers and masks. Photoshop is probably the most powerful image editor on the market, and more than that, if you love graphic design it is also a leader in that field. Because it is so powerful and can do so much, it is also quite complicated. In this workshop we’ll break it down for you and get you going.

Since space is limited these workshops require advance registration.  This is open to the public.

Photography Workshops

Because the library will be closed through at least next January or February, and because it appears meeting rooms are scarce around Kingwood at the moment, we are not going to be able to continue our workshops for a while. We promise to resume as soon as we can find a reliable location. That may mean we will have to wait until we can get back into the library.
