Course Description

Adobe Lightroom Classic is an incredibly powerful tool, but at times is overwhelming. Photographers too often know the main features of the software, but struggle to see how to apply them in their own work. This next step workshop focuses on the development of your images. Over the span of four class sessions, you learn how to push your images to their full potential using the main features as well as the nuanced little-known techniques of Lightroom’s Develop Module.

An accomplished photographer and an expert in Adobe Lightroom, Zach Taylor guides you on a technically based journey in order to build a solid foundation in image development techniques. Zach’s process stems from his fine-art education and his desire to help you make the imagery you want to see exist in the world.

In each of the four group sessions, Zach demonstrates his developing strategies and techniques on participant’s images. He walks through a step-by-step process on how he would fine-tune each participant’s image. There is much to be learned as Zach “works” your image as well the other images in real time.

Each group session consists of three 25-minute blocks allocated to developing each participant’s image. These are followed by a 15-minute lecture featuring Zach’s “technique of the day,” as well as an exercise for you to work on before the next class session.

By the end of this workshop, you emerge with a strong understanding of how to critically analyze and process your images using Lightroom’s powerful Develop Module.

While we do our best to minimize the impact of these variables, they are outside the control of Santa Fe Workshops.
