I have created this course to help you get started with Adobe Lightroom CC. I have noticed that very often students are put off by complexities of Lightroom managing system and that way they are missing out on fantastic editing features available in Lightroom.
I will in a simple to understand way explain how Lightroom works, I cover in detail how to effectively organize your photos with Lightroom and how to backup your work, so you could fully enjoy the creative modules of the application.
Lightroom is a very powerful tool and it is definitely a great idea to at least try it out. Many photographers I know, including myself were working mostly with Photoshop, but once they were introduced properly to LR they shifted their workflow and never looked back!
