Lightroom level 1: Organise and select your images

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


Street photography for all

Does this genre excite your curiosity and are you eager to learn more about its history and practice? Would you like to capture the moment but your inhibitions put obstacles in your way? Then this class is definitely for you!

This 3.5h class was designed for people wishing to learn street photography, by discovering its history, its great figures, and through accompanied practice.

The curriculum will be developed in three parts, each necessary to begin effectively in this photographic art:

  • Firstly through inspiration; by discovering the history of Street Photography, and the great photographers who made it, you will have a glimpse at the diversity of approaches and aesthetics of this genre.
  • Before starting shooting, technical tips and tricks will be given, exclusively designed to optimise your technical management in the context of the street and to take photographs "on the fly".
  • Finally, the time of practice - the heart of this class. Thanks to precise exercises, with very clear objectives, your instructor will teach you methods of discreet approaches and various tips of compositions for your street photographs to succeed.

At the end of the class, you will approach this practice in a more serene way and with the necessary inspiration to flourish on the awesome playground that is the street!


Low light photography

This workshop is intended for people who wish to practice night photography: an enchanting genre with a certain poetry. This workshop will also allow you to experience the limits of the camera when light is scarce.

To begin with, fundamental technical notions will be recalled specifically for low-light conditions (control of exposure time, "noise" in digital photography, white balance, etc.).

Then comes the time for practice and creation (the major part of the course); you will discover the city and deal with a variety of subjects: monuments, architecture, urban landscapes, statues, road traffic, candles and light painting (the art of drawing with light).

Night photography offers incredible creative possibilities, all you have to do is discover them!


Architecture photography

Is architecture photography, its history, its styles and its techniques, a source of interest for you? Are you eager to learn about its practice, and to discover the wide range of aesthetic and technical possibilities? In that case, this workshop is for you!

This 3.5h course is intended for people who wish to learn about architectural photography, through its history, great figures and essential techniques, but above all through guided practice.

The curriculum will be developed in four parts, each covering a fundamental aspect of this practice:

  • First of all, a time of inspiration by discovering the History of Architectural Photography, and the great authors who built it. You will discover the diversity of approaches and aesthetics of this genre.
  • Before starting shooting, your teacher will establish an exhaustive and explanatory list of the best materials to fully engage in architectural photography, as well as the minimum equipment required to start this practice.
  • Then will come the time of practice, the core of this workshop. Thanks to precise exercises, with very clear objectives, your instructor will teach you the technical methods and the various composition tricks to make your photographs a success.
  • Finally, the images taken during the workshop will be commented on by the teacher in terms of aesthetics and technique. A digital "HDR" and "Stitching" assembly will also be demonstrated.

At the end of this course, you will have a serene approach to this practice, be technically equipped and have the necessary inspiration to develop yourself in the field of architectural photography!
