Lightroom Editing for Beginners - Beaches Branch Library - 2:30pm - 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 Jacksonville. 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!

After group editing session. After each group the instructor runs an optional 1.5 hour critique, select, and edit session to help you improve your important post-shoot skills. While much editing can be done on modern cameras, it's best to bring a tablet or laptop with editing software to get the most out of this session. Select this option when booking to attend.

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.

Sunset Photography - Downtown Jacksonville - 3pm - 2 Hours
A beautiful sunset can be enjoyed and appreciated by everyone. Photographers refer to the last (dusk) hours of the day as the "golden hours" when the light is at its best for photography. Our light meters can be thrown off by the strong amount of light hitting our sensor, so we will be exploring manual mode and exposure compensation to intensify the colours of our sunset.

It was GREAT. The "teacher" was FULL of fantastic information. My hubby and I aren't newbies at photography, a LITTLE new to lighting...and he was able to go more in depth with us, which I LOVED.
