What will I learn?

Lightroom is a powerful tool for organizing, editing, and sharing your photographic work and it has now become the primary editing software for most photographers. This Lightroom course will not only provide you with the essential skills you need to become fully proficient with the software, but also help you to fine tune the craft of capturing images with your camera.

The 8 week online course is suitable for beginners and intermediate Lightroom users who aspire to make the most from their photography. Working online enables you to fit your learning around your lifestyle and busy schedule! You can work at your own pace and interact with your teacher and other students as part of a shared online learning environment and experience.

Using the comprehensive support materials (supplied video tutorials, production guidelines and PDF book chapters) you will learn photographic catalogue management, image optimisation, colour grading, how to prepare images for print and how to make a photobook in Lightroom. Upon the completion of each task you will upload your files to the online classroom for assessment and feedback from your tutor. You may chat to your fellow classmates and your tutor via the online discussion groups and if you desire you may showcase your images on the course Flickr group.

Why are these skills so important?

Photography is a holistic process that combines the skills of image capture with those of post production image editing. Increasing your post production skills with Lightroom will enable you to express your own unique vision of the world we live in while keeping your photographic archives organized.
