Finchley Thompson | Lightroom Classic Tuition

One to One Lightroom Classic tuition

Lightroom and Photoshop are without a doubt the most popular software packages for photographers. The Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan which includes both programs for the price of a coffee and sandwich once a month is excellent value.

Lightroom provides a platform for a complete photographic workflow. From importing and cataloging to developing and on to sending finished images to their final destinations

Whether you want to get the best initial setup with Lightroom to give you a solid foundation for years of smooth running or you need help with getting your current library under control I can help you learn to get the best out of it so you spend more of your time doing photography and less time managing files.

The following lists give an idea of the topics we can cover but I'm happy to concentrate on specific areas that you want to dive deeply into.
