A new workshop will be running in conjunction with The Ambrette restaurant in Canterbury.
This workshop is perfect for people new to our club and/or new to Lightroom. The workshop will cover many of the basic skills to get you started in Lightroom and, as an added extra and to make the workshops that little bit different, it will be running at the Ambrette restaurant in Canterbury where you will also savour a selection of their food throughout the day starting off with a morning brunch shortly after arrival (so no need to eat breakfast), teas and coffees throughout the day and a lunch, departing late afternoon. In other words just bring yourself and a laptop for practising your skills.
The workshop will cover how to import your photographs into Lightroom, add all the necessary key words, talk about collections and suggested filing systems, the all important editing and how to export your images for use in camera club competition or emailing and much more. See the following link for full details- https://capture-and-create.com/shop/learn-lightroom-basics-in-a-day-3/
