Adobe Lightroom Develop Module Workshop

We're running another Lightroom Workshop after the success of the last one we ran. 

Sunday, February 19, 2017
10:00 AM to 1:00 PM
CSI Spadina (215 Spadina Ave , Toronto, ON)

Cost: $45 + HST


Adobe Lightroom has become the standard for post image processing. We've all used it but how many of us really know how to use it properly? 

If you're tired of blindly pushing and pulling those adjustment sliders without really knowing what they do, this session for you. 

We'll spend 3-hours using the DEVELOP MODULE deconstructing the tools used with many examples. 

We'll show you how to develop your images using techniques such as:

• optimizing white balance to set the mood
• Colours adjustments
• Sharpness to make your images pop
• Targeted custom adjustments to bring out the essence of the image to align with your vision


By the end you'll have the confidence to process your images from RAW capture to the finished product that you can print or share online. 

We'll meet at 215 Spadina Ave. at the beautiful Centre for Social Innovation space. Coffee and tea will be provided. 

Night Photography at Nathan Phillips Square

Although it was a chilly evening, we had fun capturing the activities at the Nathan Phillips Square. The atmosphere was great with cheery people enjoying the Holly Jolly Midway rides. Here are a few pix from last night's Meetup session.
