Adobe Lightroom Training in Glasgow
Have you ever photographed a beautiful, vibrant sunset or luscious, rich landscape only to be disappointed by dull and flat-looking results on your computer screen when you get home?
Do you ever look at other photographers’ images and feel they have that extra punch your photographs seem to lack?
The truth is, our cameras simply don’t capture and reproduce a scene exactly how we see it, and the result is often a flat and lifeless image. The potential is there, buried in the file, it just remains untapped without first applying these professional editing techniques to your images.
In my training workshops, I’ll show you how to get the very best out of your images using Lightroom; teaching you how to achieve fantastic results with minimal editing time.
Just some of the things you'll learn:
- Adding punch and vibrancy to your images to make them pop and stand out from the crowd
- Getting the best results from different subjects, from landscapes to portraits
- Developing an efficient workflow so you spend less time editing and more time shooting
- How to create and develop your own unique editing style
- Each attendee will also receive handouts recapping everything covered, plus my handpicked Lightroom shortcuts
Example edits - original captures have been exposed to preserve highlights
One-to-one training costs just £59 for a two-hour session tailored specifically to your needs. Alternatively, bring a friend (or two) and benefit from a discounted group rate: joint training for two is only £39 each, while group training for three individuals works out at just £29 each.
All bookings are subject to a non-refundable deposit of £9. In the unlikely event I have to cancel the appointment you will have the opportunity to reschedule or receive a full deposit refund.
Don't have Lightroom yet?
The Adobe Photography Bundle includes both Lightroom and Photoshop for just £10.10 per month.
Where does training take place?
Training will take place in Thornliebank, Glasgow which is a very accessible location:
Driving: just 5 minutes from Silverburn Shopping Centre off the M77
Train: a short 10 minute train journey from Glasgow Central on the Glasgow Central - East Kilbride line.
Bus: several buses also run from town - 57 and 10 - and other parts of Glasgow.
Getting the most out of your training sessions
I highly recommend all photographers attending the course bring along some RAW files of their own and I will guide you through how I would personally approach the edit, from start to finish. However, bringing your own files is completely optional and I have a selection of my own images I think work very well as examples, if you’re not ready to share yours just yet!
And that's it! Just bring yourself, and a few images if you like. Along with the training, each attendee will also receive handouts recapping everything covered, plus my handpicked Lightroom shortcuts.
