Retouching course - Lightroom level 1 : Organise and select your images (online)
The knowledge of retouching software is a necessary tool in photography: thanks to programs like Lightroom, photographers can achieve the full potential of their raw images. Adobe Lightroom Software manages all the post-production steps of a photograph; from importing and organizing images, through their retouching, to exporting for printing (print, book) or digital presentation (web, slide show).
The first level of our Lightroom training courses will familiarise you with the use of this software. This workshop will be essential for you to understand how the program works, on the one hand, and on the other hand, to learn how to effectively organize and select your images. The selection and organisation phase of images is crucial in photographic post-production work. It is during this stage that stories evolve, series are constructed and a photographer's work is structured. The images selected in this step are the images that will be retouched.
This 3h30 workshop is therefore positioned before the retouching training (which will be taught in the level 2 workshop), and is a fundamental entry point into your Lightroom training... Just as a cook must be able to choose his food with taste before preparing a dish, a photographer must be able to select their images in an efficient and thoughtful way before retouching work...
During this first level of learning, you will be taught:
-The fundamentals of the program and how it works
-The different methods of importing images into Lightroom
-Sorting and selecting images within the software
- The course will be held online (via ZOOM)
- Your level in photography: Beginner
- No camera required for this course
- Hardware required: A computer with an internet connection, and a functional version of Lightroom (ideally a cc version)
