Step by Step - How To Use Lightroom To Edit Your Photos

   Watch Promo

Lightroom is an amazing tool when it comes to editing images!

However, for the beginning photographer it can be very overwhelming to learn how to edit but then to add in learning how to use a program that does not come with a user guide, that can be daunting.

In this video course I will step you through how to do every thing from loading your images into Lightroom, how to organize them, use the tools and filters/presets, remove objects and acne, apply white balance, watermarks, saving and so much more.

When I began my journey with Lightroom I scavenged Youtube for videos on how to use it and came up more confused than I started. This course will help your frustrations on not understanding how to use the program and leave you excited to edit your photos!

Holly Peevyhouse

Holly Peevyhouse professional photographer of 20 years, has been instructing photography for over 15 years in community education courses, one on one photography mentoring, and private classes. Her passion is to help others learn to master their cameras and confidently create images that reflect the true nature of the moment. She prides herself on teaching others to photograph well on the front end rather than the need to spend tons of time editing on the back end. She fell in love with photography at the age of 13 and has a heart for paying it forward in teaching other people how to learn this art and carry on their stories to the next generation!

"Step one was learning how to use my DSLR camera well, but let's be honest...I don't get the picture right every time and that is where Holly's Lightroom class comes in! While I had tried to work in Lightroom myself there was so much I just wasn't taking advantage of because it was all overwhelming. Holly simplified it down to the tools that I really needed and explained how to use them effectively to achieve the look I was going for. Now, if I capture the picture I want but the color is slightly off or a small object is in the picture I don't want, I have the confidence to correct and print my perfect picture."
