About This Class


In these short and sweet series of “Travel Photography for Beginners” classes I will talk about light, composition, making portraits and editing. I decided to break these topics into separate classes so it will be easier to digest.

This is the fourth class of the series and here I will talk about how to edit your travel pictures in Lightroom.

  • How to quickly enhance your pictures with basic editing
  • How lens correction can help you achieve more believable looking image
  • Why radial filter is an awesome tool for travel portraits
  • And other useful things =)

So, press enroll button and lets do some editing!

Nice class where I´ve learnt edit photos in a easy way
Great class, as usually very informative and structured content, full of helpful advice and tips, which helped me to elevate my photography skills to a new level! Excellent class, Marika, definitely recommend to everyone who love making photography and create unique memories! :)
The instructor speaks fairly quickly, but it's manageable and you can always go back and review if needed.

Hi! My name is Mariya and I am photographer and illustrator based in Almaty, Kazakhstan. 

I’m that typical example of education/career choice mismatch =) I graduated with degree in Economics and then took MSc in Finance. 

I worked for two years in Big 4 company in a department of valuations. During that time I have learned how to appraise a house, a business and even an oil storage unit. Great times =)

However I always loved to do something creative. So for about 5 years now I work as a photographer. 

Two areas that I'm mostly interested in are still life and portraits. In portraits I specialize in female portraiture. 

I truly believe that photography is a skill that is important in modern life - Instagram became a regular part of our lives, many sell their items on the web, many blog and everywhere good pictures are needed. And I think, that with some knowledge and advice anyone can make good pictures. 

Currently I am also very interested in illustrations and graphic design. It’s a constant learning journey and I love to learn something new 

My preferred social media currently is Instagram (no surprise here =D)
