Lightroom Editing for Beginners - Millcreek Community Library - 11am - 3 Hours
Learn editing in Adobe Lightroom. If you're a budding photographer looking to improve your photos after you take them, Lightroom is one of the easiest ways to edit your photos. This hands-on three hour class will focus on teaching the basics such as importing files and managing them, as well as finer editing skills. This includes making adjustments to RAW files for things such as exposure, colour, cropping and retouching, and learning how to batch process multiple photos. You'll also learn how to use presets for effectiveness and how to adjust image size and resolution for web and print, create slideshows and catalogue your work. Students are required to bring their own laptops with Adobe Lightroom installed, and a selection of 6 photographs they would like to edit.

We have a different photo theme bimontly and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations around Salt Lake City. It's a great opportunity to try something new with the guidance of a professional photographer, and come away with some new shots for your portfolio or album.

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from amateurs to professionals. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

Complete beginner? Please complete a Beginners Photography Class before attending a regular group session. This is a 3 hour structured workshop where you’ll learn the basics of using your camera with more 1-on-1 time with the instructor. Scroll down for dates.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

What’s involved? Each session starts with an introduction to the theme, and the photography instructor will chat about the camera settings and techniques to use. You’ll then have time to take lots of photos, with the instructor present to answer any questions. You’ll receive feedback and have a chance to chat with everyone to share tips and ideas. We’re a social bunch!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

We also occasionally hold more formal beginners classes which last 3 hours and are limited to 6 people. These classes are perfect for complete beginners who want to start using manual mode and those who want to brush up on the basics. See the dates below.

It was very informative and offered a nice way to practice a form of photography that is definitely harder than it looks. Nancy did a great job of structuring the Meetup, with set time limits for completing each assignment. The talk and historic photographer slideshow at the beginning helped to set the tone and provided some good inspiration for what was to follow. The assignments helped me a bit to break out of my shell, to be a little less shy about photographing people in a street photography setting. Thank you, Nancy, for a wonderful first ever Meetup event for me!
