10:00 am – 3:00 pm
Bluebonnet Library
Lind Michel, instructor

The intent of this education session is for people who are new to somewhat familiar with Adobe Lightroom.

We’ll walk through the steps of how you would take that great photo from your camera, make tone adjustments, and finally export it for a monthly club competition.

We’ll focus on the Library and Develop modules of Lightroom specifically.  In addition to photo adjustments, we’ll also cover Lightroom’s use for file management, keywording/filters & searching, presets, as well as global and local adjustments in the Develop module.

The course will be based on the latest version of Lightroom Classic CC. Please bring your laptop with Lightroom.

(we will break for lunch – on your own)

Overview from Mr. Humphreys:

I have been a fine artist /photographer for 41 years. I started my career by photographing hair and fashion for beauty salons and boutiques. I moved into food photography and worked for all of the major food institutions in the area. Raising Cane’s, Piccadilly, Ralph & Kacoo’s, Tony Chachere’s, Izzo’s, Walk-On’s etc. I also specialize in corporate portraiture for Doctors, Lawyer, and various professional. I started studying inkjet printing in the eighties and went completely digital in 2000. MY fine art is in the permanent collection of the LSU Museum of Art, Renaissance Hotel, OLOL Medical Center, Albemarle Corporation, and many personal collections.

I will plan to cover my workflow with printing and the many difficulties of getting the reproduction to look like the original. We will cover some of the various substrates that can be printed on, Etc. We will discuss the capture of the original image and how you bring that into the computer and end up with a print that represents the original art.

**IMPORTANT** Parking is very limited at this location. Participants are asked to meet at 1:30 pm at Glascow Middle School which is 2 blocks from this location. Once all participants are gathered, we will carpool as efficiently as possible to the site. It will NOT be possible to walk to the site as there are no sidewalks on Hyacinth Ave. If you arrive too late, you may not be able to participate.

Also note that this presentation is slated to last about an hour and you may be expected to stand for that amount of time. Participation will be limited to 25. If it fills the registration will turn into a waiting list. If there is overwhelming demand, a second session may be added.
