Intro to Adobe Lightroom

Do you feel overwhelmed by your ever-growing collection of digital files?

We all love capturing great photos. But now in today’s high-tech world, we’re daunted by the sheer number of digital files that constantly pile up on our phones, memory cards, and hard drives.

 

As photographers, we know great storytelling doesn’t stop after you take the shot. What’s just as important is how we safely store and enjoy our images later. Learning how to move your digital images from your camera (even mobile phones!) to your computer is essential for everyone these days. The last thing we want to do is leave our favorite moments in one place, where they could easily get lost or deleted by accident.

I am an entrepreneur trying to make things happen. My goal is to learn the art of photography, apply it to my business and my personal life. I have had the opportunity to take both her photography and lightroom classes. I am a complete beginner but I am so pleased with everything Danielle has shared with me. I have not become a photographer overnight but I have so much useful information and I do not feel lost. I have a place to start and more confidence. Danielle is also super patience with her students and I can not wait to take more classes!

I've had now two photography classes. Every time I leave with a new wealth of knowledge. There's so much to learn and Danielle has so much to share. I'm not a very creative person and Danielle shares how to look at things in a creative way. I'm excited about learning to look at things differently. We all can be artistic in our own way and it takes a great teacher to show us this. Highly recommend taking a class. You will learn so much! 100% worth it!

Danielle is truly a talented teacher and photographer. I highly highly recommend taking any of Danielle’s courses if you want to become a better photographer or creative for yourself or a business. My mom and I took her DSLR beginner course and I’ve never actually absorbed so much useful information before. I’ve sat on YouTube trying to learn how to handle my DSLR before but it never clicked as it did during this course. I actually feel like a pro now or at least on my way to becoming one. I was surprised at how very little I knew before taking the class. I can’t wait to take her Lightroom course!

This class is worth every penny and then some. I cannot say enough positive things about Danielle and this class. I have had a digital SLR for several years and was resigned to being intimidated by it. Danielle explained the functions of the camera and its settings so well. For the first time, I FINALLY am getting what it means to take the camera off “auto” and why and how to do that. We then took what she taught us and practiced with it outside — the only way to see if I was “getting it”.

I've taken multiple classes with Danielle. She's very in-depth and I learn so much more than I expected too each time. She provided great tips and explained the settings in a way that finally made sense to me. She really knows how to break down the science of photography. Danielle has a great, positive attitude, and her passion for photography is contagious!

Headshot Portraits

Absolutely loved my headshot session with Danielle! She made me feel comfortable, knew exactly where/when to shoot to capture the feel I was looking for, and even gave me a few photo tips during the session! I met her through a photography class she hosted last summer. She is an AMAZING teacher. I learned so much in that class that I went out and bought a real DSLR camera afterward! I also took a private Skype photography lesson from her after I’d had a chance to practice with the camera for a bit and that was so helpful. I will definitely be taking more photography classes from her and hiring her for future photo sessions when I need an updated shot!

Now consider how you will enjoy them in years to come? Don’t spend another day worrying about where and how you’ll access your digital photos. Now you can learn how to keep them safe forever in our Lightroom Workshop.
