This course teaches basic foundations of image transfer, cataloguing, organising and tagging photos so you can easily find images.

You will then go on to learn how to edit photos easily and make all the critical adjustments required to then export or print your images at various sizes and formats.

In practice, this course will also help you improve your eye for a shot as you become more aware of the improvements that could have been made in camera.

How you will learn

Alan is passionate about photography and a qualified photography tutor. He will engage you in discussion and be more than willing to answer as many questions as possible on the night.

Alan will demonstrate Lightroom through a projector and explain each topic and then you will have time to do in class practicals by replicating and trying for yourself the demo Alan has provided.

  1. You will be encouraged to ask questions and engage throughout the night so come prepared to ask any question you need an answer to.

  2. You will be provided with a comprehensive topic notes to take away and use for future reference

  3. You will be given assignments each week to help you cement the theory learned and raise any questions/issues the following week with Alan to clarify.

  4. You will be provided with a set of example images to use throughout the course so that everyone is working on the same image throughout the demonstrations and practicals.

Alan Ranger Photography also provides 1-2-1 tuition on any range of topics for individuals and the best photography consultancy service service for anyone or organisation wanting something more than a one-off lesson.
