Learn Lightroom

I’ve been thinking about how little I’ve written here on my blog about the curriculum or activities surrounding CAPTURE! This is probably because I do not exactly know what all is going to happen because I’ve never been on one myself. I’m sure I’ll have plenty to blog about once we’re finished CAPTURE North Carolina, but until then, I might as well talk about as many things as I do know!

Though seemly unrelated, here’s the latest CAPTURE development: anyone and everyone attending any CAPTURE workshop is eligible for a $40.00 discount off Verity Institute’s newest graphics-related class, Mastering the Photographic Workflow, held on the Verity Campus in Indianapolis October 11-12, 2013. With instructor Zyrek Castelino, take a practical and hands-on approach to learning photo management, editing, and publishing with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

I use Lightroom literally ALL the time, and without a working knowledge of this program I don’t know how well I’d be able to actually utilize the pictures I take. I recommend Lightroom to everyone; with that goes a recommendation to learn it, and learn it thoroughly. As I will be covering my own personal Lightroom processes during the CAPTURE workshops, I heartily recommend you take the opportunity while you can to delve deeper into what I consider the greatest photo organization program on the planet.

    Hi James,

    Do you find Lightroom better suited for for simple photo processing and editing than Photoshop if you’re not doing any graphic work?

    God bless,

    Lightroom provides the perfect environment for keeping your images well organized while letting you make global edits and publish images quickly. At the ATI Conferences, I have very little turn-around time for creating slideshows with the pictures taken during the conference. While Lightroom is best for making same-day or rushed deadlines, it still works as an excellent tool for every day editing. Most of my editing is done in Lightroom, though I often jump over to Photoshop for local editing, detailed color work, or anything related to graphic design.
