A more cost effective way to improve your photography

You can do more to improve your photos using Lightroom than you can from any camera or lens upgrade. You can improve the sharpness, color, texture of your photos to an incredible degree. You just have to know what you are doing. 

So before you rush out and spend thousands of dollars in your quest for better pictures, take the time improve your pictures using Lightroom.

With most things, you have a trade off between simplicity and power. Not so with Lightroom.

It is easy to use – for the most part you just dragging sliders up and down. But at the same time this is what the vast majority of professional photographers are using.

Jim Hamel will show you how to unleash that power – but also keep it simple.

What you will learn

We’ll cover every aspect of Lightroom in this course.  First, I will show you the tools Lightroom has for organizing your photos.  Lightroom excels in this area, and you’ll never spend time hunting for photos again.

Next, I’ll then walk you through the powerful tools for editing your photos.   This is where you’ll learn to transform your photos from ordinary to something special.  After you learn how to use all the tools Lightroom has to offer, I’ll show you actual start to finish examples.  That way you’ll see exactly how you can use these tools on your own pictures.

Finally, I will introduce you to the things you can do with your photos when you are done, whether that be a print, digital display, or a book or slideshow.

Why this Lightroom course?

Sure, you could cobble together an understanding of Lightroom through various YouTube videos and articles about Lightroom.  And there are other courses out there.  But if you've already taken a dPS course that Jim teaches, we believe it will be better for you to learn Lightroom from one perspective using the simple but effective teaching style you are already familiar with.  

This class consists of 30 videos broken down into easy to swallow steps.  Here are some of the key features:

Focuses on what is important. I won’t spend time dwelling on nuances that won’t ultimately matter.  I spend the most time where you’ll get the most payoff to your pictures.

Easy to follow.  If you have seen any of my other courses or taken my classes, you know I keep things simple.  You won’t be left behind in this course.

Examples.  In addition to introducing you to the tools, we’ll walk through some start-to-finish examples so you can see everything in action.  You’ll see exactly how I use Lightroom on my own pictures.

The course is modular so you can go to the parts that are important to you.  Skip around if you want, or watch the whole thing in order.  It is up to you.

What students are saying about Jim

I enjoyed Mr. Hamel's teaching style - he is easygoing and understands that not everyone is technically proficient nor wants to be a professional photographer.

Penny G.

Jim Hamel has a very pleasant and straightforward way of discussion photography concepts and their application to taking and editing pictures; it's both informative and entertaining.
