We will focus on the Library and Develop Modules of Lightroom 4 and the enhancements found in Lightroom 5 in these two modules. Among other topics, we will cover new features such as Spot Removal, Smart Preview, Radial Filter, Leveling, Perspective and an increased overall speed in Lightroom 5 as compared to Lightroom 4.

Attendees should have some familiarity with either or both versions.

Joe’s Coming to Town

The One Flash, Two Flash Seminar Tour – Joe McNally

This tour is all about creating great lighting with just one, or two, flashes. All day, lighting problems, solutions, tactics and strategies will be demonstrated, live, using simple gear and small flashes. It’s about producing stunning results that will thrill clients without tugging an eighteen- wheeler full of gear around with you.

Visit the KelbyTraining website for complete details and to register. Only $99 for a full day with one of the best instructors around.

(If you were not able to get in on Cliff and Paul’s lighting class earlier this month, this seminar would be perfect for you.)
