About This Class

Take your photo editing game to the next level with Jamal Burger (@jayscale) in this 50-minute deep dive into his Adobe Lightroom editing process!

In this class, Jamal takes his three favorite selects that he shot in NYC's Financial District:

  • the lookup
  • the stride-by
  • symmetrical shot

. . . and pulls them into Lightroom for some detailed retouching.

Learn Jamal's in-depth workflow for editing cityscapes, including cropping, color correcting, vignetting, graduated and radial filters, and more. By the end, you'll be empowered to help your photos reflect your personal style and how you see the world.


Looking for more about gear, shooting, and composition? Enroll in Jamal's class Cityscape Photography: Shooting With Symmetry and Perspective to see how he captures these shots in the real world.

I enjoy taking on projects relevant to what I believe in and embody. 

Huge on sports, lifestyle and shooting in the city. I am a former Kinesiology student from the University of Toronto, and a long-time sneaker enthusiast.  

I enjoy taking on projects with brands corporate, mid-level and personal. With every project, I always try to take something conventional and add a twist to make it stand out for the brand, as well as me staying true to my vision.

Passion is important to me. I would love for you to share yours.
