Printing with Adobe Lightroom Classic

Event info

This series of 6 workshops takes the intermediate printer through the various stages of printing an image using the Lightroom Classic (desktop) application, looking at the different options and their impact on the final result.

Following on from the successful Landscapes and Lightroom Series, Roger Crocombe ARPS is offering two additional modules as a single programme. Module 1 focusses on colour theory as applied to printing, paper choices and their impact on the printer’s ability to reproduce colours through Soft Proofing. Module 2 focusses on tuning the Lightroom Print Module parameters to make the most of your print.

Each module is delivered through three mini 75 minute  workshops. The price is for both modules and includes materials, as well as access to the Zoom recordings of each session to enable you to learn at your own pace.

As a Landscape photographer the discussions and demos are all focussed on land and seascapes from the Lightroom Classic “Beyond the Basics” Face to Face workshop adapted for online delivery. However, the skills and topics are relevant and transferable to all genres of photography.

The demonstrations are focussed on the subscription based Adobe Lightroom Classic CC, although most techniques equally apply to standalone Lightroom 6.

Module 1 is run over a week and Module 2, three weeks later.
