Course Description

Lightroom Classic is a powerful image management and image editing software with numerous tools to help you create wonderful images. This class concentrates on the Develop Module. The Develop Module provides all the necessary tools to create stunning images. We will delve deeply into the Develop Module tools by using images provided by class participants and a few of my own. This is not a beginner’s course; you should have some familiarity with Lightroom Classic and how to import and export images and the Develop Module’s basic features.
We will use various global and targeted adjustment tools to get the most out of your images, and explore some hidden and less used and understood features, with a special concentration on the tools of the updated Masking Panel. This workshop will help you achieve your goals through providing a better understanding of when and why to use a specific tool versus another for post-processing your images. Don’t struggle to get your images looking the way you want, come to this class and learn how to do it.
Written material will be provided to registered participants.

Instructor Bio – David J. Gubernick

My approach to photography is derived from my love of Nature and is based upon my emotional response to the beauty that I see. I strive for an artistic rendering to reveal the magnificence and miracle of life in its intimate details and grand landscapes. For me, photographing grand landscapes is primarily about the quality of light and the feeling of awe and wonder I experience in the midst of such sweeping beauty. Photographing close-up is a form of meditation for me as I become more focused, concentrated, and enter deeper into an often-unseen universe of vibrant colors and extraordinary patterns that literally takes my breath away. The world stands still, and I am at peace. Photographing close-up, it is possible to transform the seemingly ordinary to extraordinary. By sharing these intimate moments, through images that give form to feelings, I hope you experience a similar moment of wonder and delight, a gentle reminder of the ever present possibility of expanding our awareness to embrace the beauty and magic that surrounds us.
