About This Class

Adobe Lightroom is one of The Most Powerful Imaging Software in the World right now. In this course I will make sure that you will be ale to master this amazing Tool and create outstanding images. This course is design to teach you by doing real work. What does it mean? Except the fact I am telling you what the tools do, and explaining my steps, I am also sharing with you all of the images I am working with - so you can follow and copy my steps, and even better - apply your own changes. I believe this way of learning is most effective - ecause theory doesnt matter if we cannot apply it to reality. Images can e magical, by to make them that way you need to get to know how to work with them, know how colors work and what need to be done on each and every image. I am going to start very simple to make sure even beginners can easily follow the lectures. At first we are going to talk about Importing Images and Basic Panel - where most of the things happen and you can get full control on lights and shadows. As the course progress I am going to talk aout other panels that are most important for your workflow. When I will be sure you know everything and you are ready to work, we will start working on some landscape images I have taken during my travel. We will e using the knowledge that you've got in previous lessons. This course is universal, thats why after landscape images we will be working with amazing portrait Images taken by Ariel Grabowski. I will show you how to approach and edit portrait image, how to clean up the image, how to work with contrasts, even how to do small dodge & burn in Lightroom. And finally how to make your image stand up by working with colors. As a second example of portrait editing, I will show you how to work with lack and white images to make sure they're dramatic enough to impress!

I'm open minded and creative Photoshop Instructor and interationaly published Professional Retoucher.  The area I'm interested in is photo retouching and photomanipulation. I believe that massive layers of imagination allows me to create interesting, nontrivial ideas.
