This is an intensive, hands-on and above all fun underwater-specific workshop with plenty of one-on-one coaching from Erin Quigley of GoAskErin.com. To get the most out of the workshop, you’ll need your laptop running the most recent version of Lightroom that your OS can handle, and at least 1 external hard drive, all with the appropriate power source and cables. We will be teaching Lightroom Classic. *We will NOT be teaching the new Mobile Lightroom CC.
Erin will be teaching the latest version of Lightroom in the workshop, exploring mostly the Library and Develop Modules.
You’ll also need 3-5 of your own underwater images that we’ll choose from to work on. Bring them on a thumb drive. All skill levels of shooter are welcome!
The first session focuses on basic workflow – you’ll get the tools and techniques you need to save yourself from drowning in your own images. Learn to organize efficiently, so you can avoid headaches down the road, and get on to the fun part of editing more quickly.
