Chicago & Miami Lightroom Workshops

The first round of Backcountry Journeys’ “Lightroom: Beginner to Expert”  courses are fast approaching, meaning that if you’d like to attend one of these sessions it would be best to book your spot today, before its too late!  

We hope that everyone in-and-near the Chicago area is excited about February 8th & 9th, and the chance to grow their post-processing skills. Russ Nordstrand and Matt Meisenheimer are looking forward to meeting attendees at the Courtyard by Marriott – O’Hare, in Des Plaines, Illinois where this workshop will take place. 

We also hope folks near Miami are equally excited for their February 22nd & 23rd session, too! The exact location for this workshop will be announced soon, so stay tuned! Russ will be the instructor for those who join Backcountry Journeys in Miami. 

Our two-day Adobe Lightroom Classic CC workshops are classroom-based and feature a comprehensive look into the ‘Library’ and ‘Develop’ modules of Adobe Lightroom Classic CC – the two most important post-processing tasks to efficiently organize and edit photos.

These courses will benefit both beginner and advanced photographers, so no matter if you’ve previously worked with Lightroom, or you’ve never done post-processing at all, you’ll love this course. Lightroom Classic CC is constantly evolving with new features, and our courses and instruction methods evolve alongside the technology. 

Post-processing is as essential to good photography as exposing an image in the field. Knowing how to efficiently process and edit your photographs will elevate your photography to that next level you crave.

By the end of the two-day session you will know how to import images, efficiently organize your photos in the ‘Library’ module, perform advanced post-processing in the ‘Develop’ module, export your images for web and print, and MORE!
