“I attended the Lightroom course and loved it! Matt is so knowledgeable about Lightroom/Photoshop. His presentation and slides were very helpful to explain what every button, slide and brush can do. It was so helpful to get great explanations and hands on experience. I feel much more confident using Lightroom, and my photos are looking much better because of this class. I just entered my first photography contest because of the confidence after this class. I can’t thank Backcountry Journeys enough for putting this together! I highly recommend attending a Lightroom/Photoshop class when it is offered.”
