    Editing and Enhancing Landscape and Nature Photography with Lightroom
    Instructor:
    Joe Brady
    Skill Level:
    Everyone

    Oftentimes the best digital capture doesn’t look that great on the back of your camera. Why is this? Protecting the highlights in a high contrast scene makes the midtones and shadows appear murky and flat.

    Getting the best capture possible is a great place to start, but you need to know how to shape light, contrast and color to bring out the full beauty of your images. In this course, Sony Artisan Joe Brady will explain how to use all of the tools in the Lightroom Develop Module to turn good images into great ones!

    *Please note that class does NOT take place in the digital lab.
    *You may bring your own laptops with Lightroom installed if you'd like, but it is not necessary.
