This course is for photographers who are familiar with Lightroom Classic and want to improve their editing skills. The intent of this course is to first discuss what should be done with an image, then move forward with the mechanics of processing.

Topics will include Image Processing, Basic Workflow and the Development Module in Lightroom. We will spend most of our time discussing the post processing of a photograph using intent, tonality, composition, cropping, colour theory, texture and sharpness. We will discuss tone curves, vignetting, lens corrections, transformation and when to export an image into Photoshop for further processing.

A complete demonstration of processing images, from start to finish will provide insightful prototypes for students. Using these insights, students will process their own images in class with the support of the instructors. Bring your laptop (Mac or PC) if you have one. Your instructors have extensive knowledge of Lightroom.

Michael Murchison is primarily a landscape photographer, born in Saskatchewan but now working from Victoria, B.C.  He has been shooting landscapes since 2016 when he rekindled a lifelong passion of looking at the world through the lens of his camera.   Not a formally trained photographer, he has learned most of his craft by reading, using internet training and most importantly looking at the work of other talented photographers.  His landscape photography focuses on finding the extra-ordinary in the ordinary, often shooting more intimate scenes he sees when he is exploring the world around him.

A well-known and respected photographer, he has presented with local camera clubs in both Saskatchewan and Victoria and has a passion both for his photography and sharing his knowledge with others.
