But Where The Heck Do I Start??

5 Reasons Why You Haven't Learned How To Use Lightroom

Reason 1 - Don’t have time to learn Lightroom

Lightroom was not created to make your life more difficult. Spend an afternoon with me learning how to use Lightroom and you'll be able to cut your editing time in half!

Reason 2 - Lightroom seems complicated

Driving a car, spreading peanut butter on bread, tying your shoes. All of these things seem difficult to children, but are now second nature to you. You're in a learning stage where everything is new and seems difficult. That's normal. But, just like driving a car, Lightroom is very simple when you’re taught step by step the process to get going.

Reason 3 - Isn't Lightroom just for Professionals?

Lightroom's powerful editing tools make it the preferred choice of many professionals. But it's not an exclusive club. For beginners, the real value comes in being able to organize your ever growing library of photos. Which increasingly everyone needs regardless of whether you make money with your camera or not.

Reason 4 - You're still working on your camera skills

When you know HOW a tool works you can make a better product. A “Brenizer Photo” is a method of taking multiple images and then stitching the photos together digitally in Lightroom. The editing tool, Lightroom created a way to physically shoot different. Learning them in tandem will only deepen your understanding of all things photography!

Reason 5 - You Think Edited Images Can't Look Natural

Truth is professionals with decades of experience edit their photos to put their signature look on them, not to digitally manipulate them. Everyday world renowned photographers like Annie Leibovitz, Jerry Ghionis, Vanessa Joy, and Platon edit their photos to make them more real to life according to how they see the world.

It’s time you take editing seriously too and approach it accordingly.

And with your permission, that’s what I’d LOVE to show you how to create!

Introducing Lightroom 101

From Import to Export, quickly create a powerful photo editing workflow to spend less time wondering what sliders do what, and spend more time shooting what you love.

I’ve packaged everything I’ve learned using Lightroom both personally and professionally for the last 10 years and more than 100 weddings, and I want to give it to you!

Lightroom 101 Is the first program of its kind that…

Is Built with Rapid Implementation In Mind.

No filler or no useless modules, no trendy editing styles that will but will be outdated next month. Just a step by step implementation program to take you from confused to total clarity.

Perfectly Balances Strategy and Artistic Expression

Lightroom isn't all about hard and fast rules but exploring and flexing your artistic muscles too which is why I take nothing for granted and break down what each slider does and how you can use it to make a photo that really stands out without being cookie cutter.

Lets take an in depth look into the course content

Module 1 : Formal Introduction

Here you will be formally introduced to Adobe Lightroom Classic and Lightroom CC along with all of its powerful functions. You'll learn where everything is stored in Lightroom, why I use Lightroom over Photoshop, how to know for yourself, and all the important terms you need to know broken down in an easy to understand way.

Module 2 : Import and Organize

We will be importing our first photos into Lightroom Classic with intention. No longer will you just import and find later. This is the foundation of how powerful Lightroom is. We will build a strong organizational strategy that takes no time to set up. This is also where you'll learn how to protect your images from potentially being stolen online.

Module 3 : Global Adjustments

In this step we will be making our first edits to our images and go through each panel to discover what each slider does and exactly how to use it to enhance the uniqueness of your photos.

Module 4 : Local Adjustments

Sometimes a photo needs a bit more help to bring attention to your subject or remove a distracting loose hair. This is where we will explore the powerful capabilities Lightroom has that were previously only available in more advanced editors like Photoshop. Look at you making big moves!!

Module 5 : Live Editing Session

As much as I love to learn what each tool does sometimes it clicks best when I see how they are used together in a real life editing session. You'll see me walk through the step by step process to create photos I can't wait to deliver to my clients. You will also learn once and for all the power of batch processing!

Module 6 : Exporting

This is the final step in the process, planting your flag in the ground that you are done and happy with your image and excited to share it with the world. Tackling questions like what the heck is DPI and by the end we will build you a solid export preset saving you time and the headache of past long upload times and running out of hard drive space!

Frequently Asked Questions about Lightroom 101

Q1: I’ve seen Lightroom courses sell for a fraction of this price, what makes Lightroom 101 different?

I have seen them too, in fact I have bought several of them when I was just getting started. It was like watching someone read a thick technical manual leaving me to figure it out on my own rather than showing me how it all works to make a better photo! Think of Lightroom 101 as a friend sitting next to you at your computer showing you what buttons do what and how to use them to make an amazing photo!

Q2: Will Lightroom 101 work for my version of Lightroom?

Adobe has really clouded the waters by creating 2 version of Lightroom. Lightroom Classic and Lightroom CC. The good news is I walk through both versions of Lightroom so no matter if you edit on a computer or an iPad, Lightroom 101 has you covered!

Q3: What If I Don’t Have Time To Learn Lightroom?

As a parent to the wildest 6-year-old this side of the Mississippi, I understand how hard it is to find “free” time for ourselves. The truth is many other would-be photographers feel the same way and will ultimately give up because they don’t make time for what's important to them. This leaves you with a HUGE opportunity to get ahead and make real tangible progress to becoming the photographer you were meant to be. I have also made sure this course is free of any unnecessary lessons or filler, teaching you only what you need to know now, step-by-step. Freeing you of the mental weight of wondering how much potential your photo could have if you only knew how to use Lightroom.

Q4: Isn’t editing your photos cheating?

New photographers often think that editing a photo is to fix the mistakes made while shooting but Photographers have been editing their photos as a way of putting their artistic stamp on an image for more than a century. As you get better with your camera you'll discover that editing can also help you to tell a better story with your image. This is why great photographers make such an impact. They have learned and mastered the ability to use editing as a way to enrich the story rather than hide mistakes.

Q5: I really want to dive in but am worried I’ll get overwhelmed and lose focus.

Overwhelm happens when you don't have an actionable, easy to follow, proven path to stick to. I have created Lightroom 101 to be the antithesis of overwhelming. You’re not going to do it all at once. You're going to follow the detailed, step-by-step lessons. So as long as you don't just skip around willy nilly, then I promise to keep you on track.

Q6: How long will I have access to Lightroom 101?

Like all of my photography courses, you have lifetime access. Because when your skills grow as a photographer, you will be able to come back and pick up on new tips and ideas that will open you up to new possibilities with both editing and while out shooting.

Q7: Will Lightroom 101 work for me if I'm not a wedding photographer?

100%! Lightroom 101 is an implementation program on how to handle whatever photos you throw at it. While my professional experience is in wedding photography and personal family photography, the lessons taught will apply to whatever it is that you shoot.

Q8: What is the return policy?

We are going to make a little deal, ok? *head nod* I am 100% committed to Lightroom 101 being the ONLY program you need to successfully kickstart your ability to edit in Lightroom. If you are committed to learning how to use Lightroom once and for all and gain the confidence you've been looking for in your edits the I promise you, you WILL succeed with Lightroom 101. And if you can show me you’ve gone through all the steps, did the work, and still feel totally lost with editing then I insist that you reach out to me within 30 days to get 100% of your investment back.

Still Undecided?

You know you’re ready for Lightroom 101 if…

You’re just getting started in photography.

Humanity took more photos in 2019 than every previous year… combined. We take a lot of photos these days! You need a way to organize all those photos and nail it from the start by using one of the most powerful step by step process available now.

You’ve been trying to learn Lightroom for months (or even years!)

But despite watching a mind numbing amount of tutorials online you're just as lost as you ever were and when you do manage to import some photos they never turn out the way you wanted and always look different when you upload it online or look at the photo on your phone.

You already KNOW your way around Lightroom

Sure! You will pick up more than just a few small tweaks as you go through Lightroom 101 even if you already know how you want your photos to turn out.

You know your current editing skills are holding you back from what could be a great photo!

You've taken that photo that makes you stop and say WOAH more than once. But when you bring it into the computer you can never seem to find the right slider or setting that enhances the scene and makes it stand out. It's there, I promise! And I want to show you!

Photography will play a major part in your life in 2023 and beyond!

Doing things like watching photography youtube tutorials, listening to photography podcasts, joining photography Facebook groups, and researching the best camera gear to buy tells me you’re serious about photography. Only problem is, without a clear strategy that ties them all together you'll experience nothing but discouraging “why do I even bother” results, followed by crippling overwhelm over what to do next.
