The Essential Tool for Your Photography Experience

with Jerry Courvoisier

Adelaide July 17th and 18th 2009

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.0 is the essential software of choice for digital photographers on both Mac and Windows. This unique hands-on application experience is an intensive two-day workshop focused on Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.0, in which participants learn to download, organize, manage, develop, and present digital photography using their own laptops. Led by Jerry Courvoisier, a master teacher of digital imaging, this workshop ensures a smooth transition to the digital workflow. The cost for both days is $AU395.

We begin with an introductory overview called “Wrap Your Head Around Lightroom,” which covers database components, catalog files, previews files, the metadata structure, and the steps for setting up application preferences specific to your personal workflow requirements. Topics include digital camera setup, choosing appropriate file formats for image capture, efficiently downloading images from camera or hard drive, sorting, rating, editing, global tone and color correction, critical local corrections, input and output sharpening, presenting slideshows, and printing photographic images using Lightroom from start to finish.

Jerry emphasizes using Lightroom to its fullest potential by generating time-saving keywords and metadata searches, presets, and templates. Once images are processed, participants learn how to produce slideshows and web sites within Lightroom. We also study slide presentations and look at ways to integrate Photoshop or Elements for further image processing if desired.

Jerry shares his recommendations and strategies for making clear decisions based on how Lightroom benefits each participant’s personal approach and workflow needs. Under Jerry’s expert guidance, participants come to see why Lightroom puts deliberate focus on the word “speed,” for this program allows photographers to spend less time in front of their computers and more time behind their cameras.

The Lightroom tutorial exercises provided on the workshop DVD supply a broad assortment of images to work on, so you can continue to revisit the DVD when you finish the workshop. Jerry’s book Lessons in DSLR Workflow with Lightroom and Photoshop is a brilliant companion to this workshop.

“Jerry Courvoisier is, plain and simple, one of the best teachers of digital workflow and image management working today. He demystifies the digital world for both the beginner and the advanced user. For anyone shooting digital pictures, this book simply has to be on your shelf.”

--Joe McNally, photographer and author of The Moment It Clicks
