About This Class

Using only Lightroom 5, I cover the basics of creating black & white Hollywood glamour style images. I'll briefly cover beauty retouching; demonstrating things like skin softening, teeth whitening, eye enhancement and dodging and burning techniques. Finally I'll demonstrate the black & white conversion process along with the use of the vignette masking tool to create a variety of lighting effects when post processing.





Hi, my name is Adam Hobden, and I’m UK based a photographer. While specialising in social photography (portraits and weddings), I also enjoy the challenge of capturing sporting images, most notably cycle racing.

I teach photography and post processing techniques using Lightroom on a classroom and on a 1-2-1 basis as well, which I really enjoy. No matter what I teach, it’s that ‘get it’ moment that I love to see in a student.

More recently, I’ve discovered the power of the iPhone and I’ve become a passionate iPhoneographer. I’ve shared this passion with a few people and I’m slowly building a library of online tutorials and also run the successful mobile photography skills Facebook group..

Outside of photography, I run a small recording studio and play bass guitar in a rock band; I keep myself fit by cycling; I’ve been known to produce a podcast or two; implement a website or two and
