Course Description

Adobe Lightroom Classic provides you with the developing tools needed to fulfill your personal aesthetic. Change colors, remove dust, add contrast and more with this powerful software. Bring dull images to life or completely change the look of your artwork. Whatever your goals, this program is there to easily manipulate your imagery.

While Lightroom Classic is an incredibly powerful tool, it can also be 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 strictly on the development module of Adobe Lightroom. Over the span of six online class sessions, you learn how to process your images to their full potential.

An accomplished photographer and an expert in Adobe Lightroom Classic, Zach Taylor guides you on a technically based journey to build a solid foundation in image development. 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 six group sessions, Zach demonstrates his developing strategies and techniques on participant’s images. He asks you what you wish to achieve in the image and then shows you how he might get to the end goal. There is much to be learned as Zach “works” your image as well the other images in real time.

Each group session consists of two blocks allocated to developing two participant’s images. These are followed by a 15-minute lectures 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 Develop Module.
