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.
I now offer 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 first 3 pre-recorded videos, and a Facebook group where all of the workshop information will be easily accessible to all of the participants, and 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 from the participants. The live sessions are also recorded so all attendees then have the ability to review the participant edits as often as they’d like, and also ensures that if a participant is unable to attend for some reason, he/she is still able to view the session. I very strongly encourage all attendees to have a headset (headphones/microphone combination) to ask questions during the live sessions. This allows for an interactive, instant feedback environment.
Requirements for Participants
The only requirements for the participants are that you shoot in RAW format and that you own Lightroom. It’s strongly suggested that you also own Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, as a small portion of the videos and live sessions will cover some editing topics in Photoshop. However, the focus of the workshop is geared toward teaching Lightroom and any participants who don’t own Photoshop or Photoshop Elements would still greatly benefit from the lessons. All participants will also be required to agree to a non-compete clause.
What is the cost of the Workshop?
The cost of the workshop is $250. Enrollment is limited to 6 participants per workshop. A 50% deposit is required to secure your seat in the workshop, and the final 50% is due one week prior to the first live session. If you would like to attend one of these workshops, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is the most current list of workshops and open availability. The time and day of the week of the live sessions is determined by the participants, to allow for everyone to participate each week.
Check back often as I add more workshop dates.
- Second week of September, 2014 – 2 of 6 spots available

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!
Testimonials from Past Participants
“Taking Tiffany’s Lightroom workshop has been an incredibly eye opening experience for me. After 2 years of using Photoshop exclusively and never fully achieving the edits that I had hoped for, I knew it was time for a change. Tiffany’s workshop was great because it combined live sessions with prerecorded videos and weekly homework, as well as a Facebook group for participants to ask questions and interact with each other. Tiffany is a great instructor and I highly recommend this workshop to anyone who wants to make the switch to Lightroom, or even just understand basic editing techniques.” – Michelle of Michelle Carlson Photography
“I am so grateful that you have taken the time to create these workshops. I feel so blessed to have been able to be a part of one of them. I feel my work has really grown and improved a lot because of what I learned from you. My clientele list is growing everyday, as well as my page likes. This photo was taken when my sessions were still free and I never bothered editing it because I felt it was hopeless then. Now i re-edited with the knowledge i’ve acquired from your workshop. Thanks again, Tiffany! Im eternally grateful!
Thanks So Much,
Elaine Acero” – Elaine Acero of Aperture Heart Photography
