What you'll learn

We will be portrait editing solely in Lightroom – using the most current version of Lightroom Classic, we will learn how to fully edit individual and group portraits. Using sample images that will be provided by the instructor, together we will:

  • retouch skin, eyes, teeth, hair, etc.
  • work extensively with mask tools and layers
  • adjust backgrounds
  • alter colors of clothing or background
  • add some cool effects to images. 

A basic knowledge and some experience using Lightroom is required. We may venture from Lightroom into Photoshop for a few examples of edits, so attendees should have the most current version of both programs loaded onto their laptops. If attendees have a Wacom, or other, tablet, they should bring that as well.
