Lightroom 101 Startup  $248

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” – Lao Tzu

You’ve got the nice camera. You want to shoot raw files. You’ve heard Adobe Lightroom® is your next step. The trouble is Lightroom can be rather daunting at the outset. Let me help you through this first step with my one-on-one session. Through years of teaching photography software, both individually and in groups, I have learned that focus and attention to the process are the keys to understanding image editing. In this regard, individual sessions are far more effective and efficient. Bring your laptop, an installed copy of Lightroom and a portable hard drive and start your journey with my easy-to-use system. Come away with your computer ready to go and my easy-to-follow set of instructions to keep you on track. This session is for people who have not yet started Lightroom but want to do so. I help you set up your catalog from scratch and set you on the path forward with photography.
