Lightroom Essential 2 Week - Four Part Training


Here is what a student recently said about my Lightroom Training.

"I just completed a two day seminar on Adobe Light Room taught my Mike Adkins.  I  thoroughly enjoyed  the class. Mike was very knowledgeable and explained everything in a calm, precise and professional  manner. I was very impressed with his ability to explain this rather complex program in a way that we as beginners could understand. Although it will take some time and practice to become really proficient in the use of all the features of the program, I feel confident that I can do most of what I need to do as a result of taking this class. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in learning to use  the number one photo editing program in the world. - Jim Ellis -
