Lightroom 5 Class Coming to PVNET




 If you have been following my blog for a while, you know that I teach classes for PVNET, a non-profit organization in Palos Verdes. I’ve been teaching classes there for about three years or so. Beginning in March, and going through May, I will be teaching a series of six different classes.

One of them will be Lightroom 5. I’ve been wanting to teach a beginning class in Lightroom for some time, so I am really excited about finally getting a chance to do this. Many of you have asked if I was going to teach a Lightroom class sometime. In fact, I excited about the entire series of classes.

We are still finalizing the details, but here is what we know so far. To begin with, all of the classes will be either Friday afternoon or Friday night. They will each be four weeks and meet for two hours per session. One of the unique features of the classes is that there will be an open one-hour lab between the afternoon and evening class where students of either class can drop in for some extra help or to work on individual projects using the skills they learned in their particular class.  Afternoon classes will start at 3:00 pm and the evening classes will start at 6:30 pm, with the joint lab session running from 5:00-6:00 pm.

Also, for most of the classes you will be using your Windows or Mac laptop and working with your own pictures.

Here are the classes.


3:00-5:00 pm              iPad/iPhone Photography

6:30-8:30 pm              Lightroom Level 1


3:00-5:00 pm              Introduction to Digital Photography

6:30-8:30 pm              Photoshop Level 1


3:00-5:00 pm              Movie Maker Level 1

6:30-8:30 pm              Lightroom Level 2

Look for more information, including how to register for these classes in the coming weeks. Shortly, information on how to register for these classes will be posted on the PVNET website.

For those of you who have taken classes at PVNET, you know that it is a great facility. Space is limited, however, so you will need to sign up as soon as registration opens to secure your spot.

Let me know what you think about these classes by leaving a comment.

    • Bill, Lightroom is a very popular program also written by Adobe. It is a favorite of professional photographers and more serious amateurs. It started off as a step up from the Organizer in Photoshop elements to help photographers quickly organize the their large number of pictures to apply basic edits to them. With each new version more sophisticated editing features have been added. More and more photographers are finding that they can do all but their most difficult photo edits using lightroom. Where in the past, they would use Lightroom to organize their images, and jump into Photoshop to edit them, now they find they stay in Lightroom most of the time.

      Another way to think of it, is Lightroom is a step up from Photoshop Elements, but that being said, Elements can do almost everything Lightroom can regarding managing images. The two programs look different, but underneath they are very similar regarding their features and functions.

      The above is probably more than you wanted to. 🙂

      But thanks for asking.
