Make your photos look great

Larry LaCom

Have you ever wanted to learn how the pros get their photos to look so great? As a follow-up to the recent successful photography class, Larry LaCom will be teaching a class on Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop, beginning on April 22 at the Slice of Life Enrichment School. This will be an introductory level class that promises students they will learn an efficient and effective workflow that takes them through importing their photos, organizing them, keywording them to facilitate searches years down the road, adjusting them for tone, color and contrast, applying special effects and more - all within Lightroom. Then we will learn how to "round-trip" photos between Lightroom and Photoshop, what Photoshop can do that Lightroom cannot, and cover some basics of image editing in Photoshop, including some of the following: layering, layer masking, blending modes, compositing and retouching. We will also learn how to do High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography, panoramas, HDR panoramas, focus stacking, and much more.

Students will need to bring a laptop computer, preferably with a pointing device such as a mouse or a tablet, and will need an active subscription to Adobe's Photography Plan. Bring your laptop with Lightroom and Photoshop installed to the first class.

Details about Adobe's plan and pricing can be found here:
