BEGINNERS LIGHTROOM CLASSIC  WORKSHOP

with Matt Krumins Photography

GET STARTED STAY ORGANISED

Lightroom Classic* is an incredibly powerful desktop editing and cataloging platform but with great power comes great responsibility… to keep organised and make your edits count. Most problems that I see in peoples editing workflow is a lack of understanding of how to set Lightroom up for success. Join me in the studio at Lilydale for a hands on workshop where we cover all of the basics that you need to set yourself up for editing success!

*Note, this workshop does not cover the mobile Lightroom App.

IMAGE EDITING BASICS

WORKSHOP PLAN

1. LIGHTROOM OVERVIEW
We take a thorough look at the tabs in Lightroom to help you understand the capability of the software and get you comfortable moving around the tabs!
2. IMPORTING
This is where many people go wrong in Lightroom. They create bad habits and strange workflows that cause big problems down the track. We look at a fool-proof way to import images and keep organised. As well as helping you to untangle your catalog if it's having issues.
3. HISTOGRAMS
There is no point in having the knowledge to edit your images if the information you're trying to enhance or recover simply isn't there. Whilst it's not directly related to Lightroom we cover how to read histograms to ensure you get the best from your images all the way from shooting to editing.
4. EDITING BASICS
Master the basics of editing including the crop tool, spot removal tool and Basics Editing Panel giving you the knowledge you need to bring your images to life! We also look at how to shoot HDR when the scene is just too much for your camera.
5. EXPORTING
It's all good and well to have your images edited but unless you can export them with the correct specs then it's a lost cause! We go through the most popular exporting specs and set you up with presets to simplify the process going forward!

EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS

Yep, you will need a computer/laptop that is capable of running Lightroom Classic. Please ensure you bring a monitor/keyboard/mouse etc.

You will need a copy of Lightroom Classic installed on your computer. I highly recommend this is up-to-date (subscription model) as there are features and compatibilities that are incredibly worth while! Jump onto the Adobe Website here to get the latest version.

Please bring you camera, memory card and memory card reader so we can explore histograms and download images using your own equipment.

Whilst you don’t specifically need it on the day, I highly recommend having a hard drive to back-up your images. This drive needs to be big enough to store your entire catalog of images, I usually recommend 1-2TB.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

This is a beginners Lightroom Classic workshop so no experience is necessary! You will need to have the software installed on the computer before the workshop though. If you are unsure how to do this please get in touch and we can organise a 1 hour private zoom session to organise this prior to the workshop.

This workshop includes a full day workshop at my studio in Lilydale with a full notes pack with diagrams, screenshots and links to video tutorial content! This Lightroom workshop has TONS of resources to help you remember what we cover. Snacks, morning tea and lunch are also included.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

"I have just done Matt’s Beginners Lightroom course and can not recommend it highly enough. Lightroom is something that I have struggled with for a few years and just could not grasp the basics. The way Matt breaks it down and the friendly, informative way it was presented, all suddenly started to make sense. Matt could not of been any more helpful and displays an outstanding knowledge of the subject. It was my first course with Matt but certainly won’t be my last. Looking forward to doing more of the wide range of course he offers."
