This class will teach the basics of balancing and retouching photographs in Adobe Camera Raw/Lightroom, Photoshop, and smartphone apps for a more professional look. Sample photographs will be provided so that students can edit together during class. Whether shooting portraits, products, food, or another subject entirely, students will learn a number of techniques to improve curves, color balance, workflow, and much more.
Please note: To show the widest range of editing capabilities, Adobe Camera Raw/Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop will be the focus in this class, so they're highly recommended but not required. If you don't want to download their free trial, you can use similar editing apps Cara goes over in class, or just watch as she edits.
This class is appropriate for ages 18+.
