Mastering the Lightroom Develop Module

Make a good start

One of the first places you will see your camera file in all its glory after making the exposure will be in Adobe Camera Raw or Lightroom. Although the functionality of both programmes is almost identical, on this workshop we will be focussing on the Lightroom Develop Module and how to best understand its basic controls.

Mastering the tools

It is at this point in the photographic journey that we lay the foundations of what the finished photograph will be, and an understanding of the tools is critical to this process. Also essential is grasping how the tools work on conjunction with each other to bring about gradual, but profound changes.

A simple cumulative process

We will set out how the controls directly relate to the histogram, and how this relationship should be utilised rather than the histogram simply being a reference point for checking for correct exposure and clipped highlights and shadows.

You take full control

We believe that if you get it wrong at this stage of image editing, then as you move onwards you are essentially ‘recovering’ the file as opposed to ‘refining’ the file. Editing platform have changed hugely over the years and this is an opportunity to get the most up-to-the-minute techniques with which to explore your images.

Some feedback from people who have already taken the course

The course was backed up with concise videos on various topics which you could work through at your own pace. These were straightforward and well presented .
This course allowed me to understand not only ‘how’ but more importantly ‘why’. I was also pleased to see that the end results of these techniques in the ‘full process’ videos, resulted in images that excelled without resorting to numerous ‘add on’ programs with exaggerated saturation. The results were subtle and very pleasing
I have to say I signed up for the course as an experiment; however, having finished the course I think the structure worked very well for me and probably better than a classroom environment.
