About This Class

Hi everyone!

This is my personal starter guide for Adobe Lightroom: if you aren't familiar with this software this should be the first class you ever enroll to if you want to learn from me.


I'll be explaining:

  1.  the functions I use the most;
  2.  the What & the Why of every button I press in my own post production classes.

I will keep it updated every time I create something new that could be useful to you too.

That's how the class is composed:

  • 1st section: dedicated to the interface of Lightroom and how to import your photos in it;
  • 2nd and 3rd sections: I will explain how the tools in the Develop frame should be used;
  • 4th section: I explain the meaning of metadata and how to add them to your photos.

Let me know if I could add something else in this Compendium: something you didn't understand in the lessons, the explanation of something, etc.

Check out my website if you want to contact me directly:

I'll try to give my Skillshare Premium students support any time I can! :)
