For awhile, I’ve been looking for a way to combine my love for photography with my love for teaching. I love photography for the creative outlet, and I love teaching because I love interacting and sharing ideas with others.
So for the first time, I will be offering an online Lightroom & Editing Workshop. What will this entail? Read on for the details!
What will be included in the workshop?
The workshop will include a combination of 4 pre-recorded videos, as well as 3 live sessions, pertinent printouts for each of the pre-recorded videos, and a Facebook group where all of the workshop information will be easily accessible to all of the participants, which will also allow for a lot of open discussion and Q&A.
What topics will be covered in the pre-recorded videos?
The pre-recorded videos will cover the following topics:
- Importing RAW files into Lightroom, and how to organize and cull them
- Basic to advanced Lightroom edits
- How to move from Lightroom, into Photoshop for editing fine details, and moving back into Lightroom
- Final touches in Lightroom and Exporting for Web viewing, as well as Print
What topics will be covered in the live sessions?
There will be 3 live sessions, 1 session per week for 3 consecutive weeks, and during each live session I will edit 2 images. In the first week, I will edit 1 of my images as well as 1 image from a participant, and in the final 2 sessions, I will edit the final 4 images from the other 4 participants.
Requirements for Participants
The only requirements for the participants are that you shoot in RAW format, that you own Lightroom, and that you own Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. All participants will also be required to agree to a non-compete clause.
When is the Workshop?
The first workshop will start in the first week of May. The second workshop will start in the third week of May. The day of the week on which the live sessions will happen will be determined by myself and the participants.
What is the cost of the Workshop?
Because this will be my first time teaching this type of workshop, I will be charging an introductory price of $150 for the first 2 workshop sessions. I will limit enrollment to 5 participants per workshop. A 50% deposit is required to secure your seat in the workshop, and the final 50% is due the day before the beginning of the session. If you would like to attend one of these workshops, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m super excited for this workshop and cannot wait to pass along my knowledge to you in a fun, interactive environment! I hope to “meet” you soon!
