In February and March we’re going to do something a little bit different for the Lone Tree Photography Club and the Front Range Photo Meetup Group. I’ll be doing two Lightroom workshops — Library and Develop — but this time I’m going to shake it up by making these two workshops all about you.

What do I mean by that? First, I’m going to break all my own rules about not teaching a “fast & easy” workflow. I’ve always said that there are no shortcuts, and that there is nothing “fast & easy” about learning Lightroom. (OK, well, that might be true about Lightroom in general… but… ) This time we’re going to look at the short list of steps you want to be sure you complete for each import, and figure out how to get it all done in the easiest possible way. Of course we’ll make sure your catalog stays fit and organized, and that we get the right metadata embedded, but it’s finally time to relax and enjoy it! Right?

For the second workshop I’m going to turn things upside down once more, and this time let’s make this class about correcting your images. Bring your favorite image to class on a thumb drive (or borrow one of mine), and we’ll analyze and correct it together. This will give you a chance to learn how I analyze a variety of images for cropping, white balance, exposure, and all the image corrections essentials. If we don’t have enough class images we’ll use mine.

In this workshop we’ll learn how to quickly analyze any photo, figure out what it needs, and correct it. Just like workflow, the image correction process shouldn’t be painful… it should be fun!

Both workshops will be 4-hours, from 9AM – 1PM, and both will be held at the Lone Tree Civic Center. Click here for the map.

Saturday, February 22: “Master The Lightroom Workflow – From Import To Export”

Saturday, March 1: “Color Correction Made Easy – Bring Your Own Photos!”

Hi George, why don’t you offer a recorded version of your live classes? I suspect many would be willing to pay for a recorded version. Could you offer this and increase your bottom line, increase your exposure and let us who cannot attend see what you are like in person? Just an idea I am sure is not new. Your biggest fan, Floyd…

Hi Floyd!

It’s a good idea….. perhaps I should consider that!

But also, perhaps I will get out to San Bernardino one of these days. :-) George
