***NEW*** An introduction to Adobe Lightroom
This is a brand-new course written in the same easy-to-understand language as the One-to-one photography course. It is intended as a logical follow-on to the existing course and is specifically aimed at photographers shooting RAW, who aren't quite sure why (!). Shooting RAW is the best way to preserve all the image information captured by your camera's sensor - JPEG compression discards vital image data, which is then lost forever.
This course will guide you through a logical, step-by-step workflow - from import, through the develop module, to export of the finished images.
If you are used to bumbling your way around Photoshop and want to find a better workflow, Adobe Lightroom - and this course are the ideal solution.
