Knowing how to take a good photograph requires a level of technical skill and knowledge. Knowing how to edit those images efficiently is an entirely different skill set. As is knowing the right way to present them to your clients to maximize your sales.
During the first portion of this class, you will explore the differences between Lightroom and Photoshop, when to use them, and how to maximize your editing using both. This class is geared towards someone who already has experience using these programs but wants to understand them better.
During the 2nd portion of this class attendees will be guided through a step by step process explaining the ins and outs of in-person sales. Why it is important, how to transition from shoot and burn, and how to start making more money doing what you love.
This will be an open discussion so bring all your questions!
This is a 2 part class. This 2nd class is editing and IPS 101 (Editing in Lightroom & Photoshop and learning the foundational blocks of In-Person Sales.) The 1st class learning to think creatively when shooting on location.
Attendance to both classes is not required but it is recommended. Each class must be paid for separately.
Items to Bring: laptop (preferably with LR/PS) if not you can follow along on instructors screen, pen and paper, any questions you have.
