Digital Asset Management & Photo Editing in Adobe Lightroom
Overwhelmed by the hundreds (if not thousands) of photos clogging up your devices and storage? Are you interested in perfecting your images before publishing them to social media or other outlets? Take control of your digital data by utilizing Adobe Lightroom to improve your pictures in terms of both aesthetics and organization.
We will explore both technical and visual considerations in the medium by combining hands-on exercises, detailed demonstrations, and classroom discussions. Through instructor-led and self-guided practice, students can discover their personal artistic preferences and develop valuable editing skills in the digital darkroom.
Note: We encourage students to complete Digital Photography 1 before beginning this course. We also recommend that students subscribe to the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan so they can complete homework assignments and utilize these techniques in their photography.
