Learn Lightroom in a day. We'll look at the 2 most powerful modules, the Library and the Develop Modules.
Learn how to use Lightroom to be in control of your digital workflow. This class is designed to make Lightroom easy to understand and put you in control of all it has to offer. It will cover your workflow from beginning to end: from importing and organizing to adjusting, sharing and exporting your images. Find out how to choose which adjustments to make, and in what order. We will spend our time in the Library and Develop modules.
Following the class all attendees will receive an extensive pdf handout with 130 pages of Lightroom tips, tricks and screen shots. It'll be your post-class companion when you're back at home working in Lightroom.

Note - At the class you'll bring your own laptop (desktops are fine too) loaded with LR 4, 5, 6, the old CC (by old we mean the CC version that you would have gotten before October 2017), or the new version which is LR Classic. We will not cover the new (October 2017) LR CC version which is more of a mobile version. If you haven’t already downloaded Lightroom go to the Adobe site and look for the $9.99 Photography Plan that gives you Lightroom Classic, Lightoom CC and Photoshop (make sure your plan includes the "Classic"). You can also download a fully functional 30 day free trial.
This class is offered on other dates and locations. This LINK will filter the classes so you can see them more easily.
If you prefer to learn at a slower pace consider the Lightroom Develop Module In-Depth and the Lightroom Library In-Depth classes offered every other month.

What People Are Saying about Corey
"Corey Hilz never disappoints! I have taken several classes and workshops with Corey and I always come away with more photographic knowledge and insight than before. Not only does he have great vision, he is also technically savvy, making him a guru in the field and in the classroom. Corey is patient with all of his students regardless of level, and he makes his explanations easily understandable. I can’t recommend Corey enough if you are contemplating a workshop or class with him."
"Corey makes one feel confident. Yes, Corey truly is a gifted teacher, and he is able to clearly explain complex concepts to a complete novice."
"I've done enough photo workshops to know that some instructors are good in the field while others are good in the classroom. Corey is outstanding in both! In the field he has an uncanny ability to show up just when you need his help. His comments are always constructive and nonjudgmental. He lends his equipment freely (he got me hooked on Lensbaby) and encourages you to try new techniques. In the classroom, his teaching is methodical and logical. He shows you how to make the most of the digital darkroom with the software that you have (and then he shows you again using the software you wish you had). Corey is a natural teacher."
"I completed the Lightroom in a Day class with Corey Hilz today. This class far exceeded my expectations. I was admittedly skeptical of the long list of topics to be covered in one day but Corey is a gifted instructor and he presented a large amount of technically complex materials in a very easy to understand clear, concise, and coherent in manner."
