Technical notes
This class will generally focus on Adobe Lightroom 6/CC and Photoshop CC. However, the techniques Nat will demonstrate apply universally to all photo-editing software, including Adobe Bridge/Camera Raw and earlier versions of these programs. Whether or not you currently use Adobe imaging software, you can learn a lot in this class!

You’re welcome to bring your computer to follow along with the demonstrations. (Sample images will be provided.)

Please understand that during this class we will not be able to address general computer issues, or aspects of Lightroom and Photoshop outside the Develop/processing routines.

If you’re just starting out using your computer to process pictures, or have just begun using Lightroom, it may be best if you simply watch and take notes. If you have any questions about this, please talk to Nat before attending the class.
