Lightroom online photo processing workshop

Take the stress out of image editing and managing your photo library, by learning how to create a fast and efficient workflow to save you time and make your images pop. Whether you're new to Lightroom or simply feel like you're not using it to its full potential, Nikon Ambassador Richard Peters will show you how to quickly sort and process your photos to a higher standard or even prepare them for competition or magazine submission. Unlike a more traditional image editing workshop, you will also be advised on camera techniques you can apply at the shooting stage. Lightroom workshops take place in your own home, on your own computer, enabling everything you learn to be applied immediately to your setup and workflow.

DETAILS

The online Lightroom workshop experience
Held via Zoom, you will be invited to a private online meeting room with Richard, where he will be able to share his screen with you, and you with him, enabling all aspects of a typical in-person workshop to be conducted.

Experience level
These photo editing workshops are open to all levels of experience. They especially suit those who are new to Lightroom or haven't gone beyond the very basics.

Does it matter what camera I use?
Absolutely not. Lightroom works with the files from every major camera manufacturer.

Do I need Lightroom already installed?
Yes. Although Richard will bring along his own laptop too, the only absolute requirement for this photo processing workshop is that you have Lightroom installed on your computer. You can download a 30 day trial of the latest version of Lightroom CC Classic from the Adobe website.

Photo processing guidance
During your time with Richard, he will talk you through everything at a pace that suits you with the mantra that it's better to be asked the same question five times, and you understand the answer, than to be asked once and you forget.

Website hosting, social media and more
These one-to-ones, whilst centred around image editing, can also be tailored to include other digital workflow techniques. Why not use your time to also gain advice on website hosting, social media management and more.

Workshop times
Image editing workshops are very flexible and, because they are held in your own home, can be held at time of day that suits your schedule.

Location
The beauty of Lightroom tuition online is that Richard is able to host you, no matter where in the world you are based. For in-person workshops, Richard is based in Surrey, however, if you're based in London or one of the surrounding counties of Hampshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Sussex, Kent or even further afield, Richard is able to travel. Please get in touch to discuss additional travel costs.

Optional portfolio review
Many photographers find benefit from having a constructive review of their current photos to get the very most from their day. This is entirely optional so you're more than welcome, but not required, to prepare a specific selection of images for this.

One-to-one photographic workshop

LEARN

Learn how to make your images pop
Your DSLR captures a huge amount of data when you press the shutter. Lightroom allows you to tweak that information to give your images the finishing touch and to do so, the develop module is at the heart of this one-to-one.

Develop Module tools explained
Exposure sliders
Editing panels
Brushes and tools
Snapshots
Dust removal
Cropping
Noise reduction
Sharpening
Lens profiles

As well as learning what all these functions do, you'll discover quick and simple techniques such as colour correction and exposure adjustments plus how to convert successfuly to black and white. By understanding what all the sliders do, when to use them and, crucially, when not to, you'll be quickly adding the finishing touch to your photos in no time.

Photo catalogue management
Lightroom isn't just a powerful image editing suit. It also features powerful tools to allow you to better manage your entire photo library. A streamlined and well organised hard drive is as important to an effective workflow as being able to quickly process and edit.

Library Module
Import settings
Import presets
Keywords
Ratings
Meta Data

During your tuition with Richard, he will offer advice on how to streamline your existing filing system or help you setup a new one from scratch. Either way the aim will be to improve your photo library maintenance as it grows.

Learn these and more essential tools
Further expand your photo management by learning Export Settings, Watermarks for web, the benefits of Lightroom Mobile, different types of external hard drives and so much more.

TESTIMONIALS

Karen

As a relative newcomer to the world of photography, I booked a one-to-one with Richard with only 4 months experience of using a DSLR camera.

My aim was to improve my overall understanding of the different settings, including manual, with an overall objective to improve my wildlife photography, and get away from the Auto setting, prior to my impending holiday to Africa. One of the specific issues I had been finding tricky was focusing on moving subjects, Richard soon put me on the right track by explaining my cameras focus system and when and how to change its settings.

Richard also provided me with lots of well explained advice around different camera settings and image composition, which we put into practice throughout the day. Not only was the workshop really beneficial in terms of improving my knowledge and understanding, but it was also a really enjoyable day.

Nigel

As a fan of Richard's work I was delighted when my wife booked a one-to-one for my birthday. Upon arrival we sat down to a portfolio review where he looked at how I had composed and processed my images using Lightroom, suggesting constructive alternatives. It was a fantastic eye opener to have professional opinion and critique.

A run through of important camera settings, lots of questions from me and lots of great answers from Richard and we set off to put the theory into practice. We photographed a co-operative heron in some great light and it was good to see my shot, then the next shot with Richards suggestions incorporated (you could really see the difference). The afternoon ended with an amazing sunset and a lesson in backlighting.

Richard’s knowledge, and ability to pass it on in easy to understand ways, made this a valuable experience for me to help turn the same old photos into something new.

Taran

I initially felt a little intimidated when I booked my one-to-one with Richard. However he immediately made me feel at ease with his humour and friendly nature and our workshop had a great flow and was well thought out.

What I loved the most is that it was informative yet open and relaxed. Richard is a humble and passionate photographer who was very willing to share his tips and tricks and as a result of only a few hours together, I now have a much better understanding of where I am as a photographer and the areas I need to concentrate on to improve my photographic skills.

His knowledge and demeanour left me eager to push my photography further and once I’ve hit my next set of challenges, I’ll look forward to booking in again to learn more!

Richard, thank you for such a wonderful experience.

David

I flew over to the UK, from Ireland, to spend two days with Richard and what a great experience it was, with day one being hands-on and day two concentrating on workflows and theory, which proved to be incredibly informative.

Richard demonstrated his workflow processes, including importing, cataloging, how to select the best images and development of those images to get them ready for exporting and printing. This was most instructive, as it differed in many ways to the various procedures I had followed online and showed me why I didn't always get a satisfactory final result.

His explanations of many of the tools and sliders was easy to follow and I had several “light bulb” moments as I realised their hidden potential.

Heidi

Even though I had been using Lightroom for a while I was aware that I only knew the basics and wanted to gain some extra training so I could get the most out of it. Richard was a great teacher, really easy to get on with and extremely knowledgable. He helped me get my Lightroom catalogues in order and suggested better work flow as well as going through the library and develop panels.

Richard was always happy to answer questions or go over anything I didn’t quite understand at first and he offered advice and constructive criticism of my images which really gave me a better understanding of what to aim for, both in camera and through editing. I would recommend a Lightroom 1-2-1 with Richard to anyone wishing to improve their editing skills and processing knowledge. Being a fan of Richard’s work, it was a real pleasure and privilege to have this workshop with him and to have his professional advice and insight into the world of Wildlife photography.

As a fan of Richard Peters’ work I was delighted when my wife booked a 6 hour one-to-one workshop for my birthday. I have enjoyed taking wildlife photographs for a long time, gradually improving but realised I was taking the same old photographs. It was time for a new approach, good advice and a fresh pair of eyes. Upon arrival to our workshop, Richard bought me a coffee and we sat down to a short portfolio review. Richard looked at how I had composed, cropped and processed my images using Lightroom and suggested options and alternatives. It was a fantastic eye opener to have professional opinion and critique and Richard shared his technical skills and passion for photography, along with some methods of using light creatively. This Lightroom overview helped me learn some great shortcuts, which have since made a big improvement to my workflow. A run through of important camera settings, lots of questions from me and lots of great answers from Richard and we set off with our cameras to put the theory into practice. We soon spotted a very co-operative heron in some great light, I snapped away listening to Richards tips and it was great to see my shot then the next shot with Richards suggestions incorporated (you could really see the difference). The afternoon ended with an amazing sunset and, taking Richards advice, I waited until the sun had dropped low enough to experiment with backlighting. The 6 hours flew by and it was a fantastic day, with advice and encouragement from Richard throughout, and some great shots on the camera. Richard’s knowledge, and ability to pass it on in easy to understand ways, made this a valuable experience for me to push my photograph forward and help turn the same old photos into something new. Thank you!

K Bangs

As a relative newcomer to the world of photography, I booked a one-to-one with Richard with only 4 months experience of using a DSLR camera.

My aim was to improve my overall understanding of the different settings, including manual, with an overall objective to improve my wildlife photography (off the auto setting!) prior to my impending holiday to Africa. One of the specific issues I had been finding tricky was focusing on moving subjects, Richard soon put me on the right track and resolved this.

Richard also provided me with lots of well explained advice around different camera settings and image composition, which we put into practice throughout the day. I opted for the image review at the start of the session, I found this particularly useful as it helped highlight any areas that needed development during the session and also increased my confidence through the constructive feedback. Overall the workshop was really beneficial in terms of improving my knowledge and understanding, but it was also a really enjoyable day.

I would highly recommend a one-to-one to anyone wishing to develop their skills.

Having seen Richard’s incredible work I was naturally a little intimidated when I initially booked my one-to-one with him. However he immediately made me feel at ease with his humour and friendly nature and our workshop had a great flow and was well thought out.

Richard is a humble and passionate photographer who was very willing to share his tips and tricks and as a result of only a few hours together, I now have a much better understanding of where I am as a photographer and the areas I need to concentrate on to improve my photographic skills.

I wasn't sure going in how much benefit I would get from my workshop but it exceeded my expectations, everything was explained with great clarity and it inspired me to be more creative and confident.

Richard's knowledge and demeanour left me eager to push my photography further and once I’ve hit my next set of challenges, I’ll look forward to booking in again to learn more! Richard, thank you for such a wonderful experience.
