Photo Success with Lightroom

Discover a solid workflow for processing images well in Lightroom Develop
Course Created by Rob Sheppard
My mission is to show people how to create compelling photos, especially of nature. I believe we all have a unique vision to share through photography and that the craft of photography matters if you want your photos to communicate at their best. Great photography is about finding ways to create meaning in your photography and connect people with the natural world.

I have been busy over the years creating over 40 books related to photography, including Landscape Photography: From Snapshot to Great Shot, The Magic of Digital Nature Photography, and the National Geographic Field Guide to Digital Photography.

I get around as a speaker and workshop leader, and I am a Fellow with the North American Nature Photography Association. I was the long-time editor of the prestigious Outdoor Photographer magazine and presently am a contributing editor.

Lightroom is a superb image processing program that makes the photo the star rather than the program. It is powerful and much easier to use than Photoshop. Most photographers do not need Photoshop if they understand how to get the most from Lightroom, and this course will help you get the most from this effective and efficient program. Digital cameras have limitations in how they see the world compared to how we see it, so they need processing. JPEG files are RAW files processed in the camera, but even then, the camera doesn't always process them optimally for your purposes. Lightroom is designed to help you process images to their optimum as you see them and do it efficiently, effectively and quickly. This course will help you learn to do exactly that. You will learn a workflow that will optimize your image processing and consistently give you the results you need. It will help you best adjust the image overall for contrast, brightness, tonalities and color as well as giving you the tools to adjust parts of the image separately from the rest with local controls. The course is for photographers who want better images but don't want to spend their lives at the computer.
