Lightroom: Up & Running
Fri/Tues, February 22 and 26, 9:30-4:00PM
Contact Eliot to sign up.
Lightroom is a new Adobe application for organizing and managing the large numbers of files that digital photographers accumulate. It is far more elegant and capable than Adobe Bridge in performing these tasks. Lightroom also allows one to edit their files globally for tone, color, and sharpness; create slide shows, print, and publish web galleries within separate modules. In short, it's a wonderful administrative hub for all one's files.
Eliot is teaching Lightroom classes monthly during the day in McLean, and on weekends with the Capital Photography Center. The classes are comprehensive and will have everyone up and running with Lightroom right away. They are typically done on one's own laptop, building one's own catalog, although this is not a requirement for the courses."
Course cost: $395

We will work on student's laptops with your images building the catalogs as we go through the program. Upon completion participants will have the knowledge they need to continue to add images, refine the metadata for them, develop the RAW or JPEG files, and present them in slide or print form.
The Library module is the heart of Lightroom's organization. Day one will focus there. Day two will include a brief Library review as well as the Develop, Slide, and Print modules.

Books are a wonderful way to
share images and present portfolios. They can be formal and artistic
or informal and family or travel oriented. With on demand publishing
through organizations such as Blurb, one can print a single copy or
a small number and not be constrained by typical publishing models
with large print runs. It makes the process affordable and fun.
is one of the foremost on demand publishers. Their software is free,
flexible, and the books are nicely printed. For those interested in
making books with Blurb, I will teach a workshop that will go
