Happy Monday everyone! Registration is open for my class at THE DEFINE SCHOOL and I thought I would just give a little overview of what we will be covering for those of you who are potentially interested. The class is 4 weeks long, but designed so you can watch the lesson and participate on your own time table. So there is no set time to watch the lessons and do the work, and ask questions each week. That really makes it flexible enough for anyone’s schedule!
So here it is what I will be covering:
Week 1: My entire culling process. How I import the photos and go through them, pick the proofs and favorites, and pretty much everything else I do in Lightroom. I will be talking about not only the fastest way to choose, but also the fastest way to make sure all your proofs look great. I will also be talking about exporting, backing up, renaming, and a lot of other time saving tips and tricks for the culling process.
Week 2: We go over everything I do in Photoshop. I go over the basics in Photoshop concerning editing. But I will also be talking about tricks to batch things as you go, how to create actions, and a number of other shortcuts to make Photoshop as quick and painless as possible as well as how to add some extra awesomeness to your images that isn’t possible in Lightroom.
Week 3: Is the distribution process. How to get all your photos to your clients, and how to put them on the web very quickly so they maximize their effectiveness. I will be talking about all the different formats you might needs, as well as some great ideas for structuring your archives to think long term usefulness.
Week 4: This is the communication section. It will cover a lot of tips and tricks to cut down on the time you spend communicating, while still doing it far more effectively. I will also be covering some basics of workflow and how to structure everything for maximim efficiency.
That’s it in a nutshell. The end result is how to completely process a wedding from the camera, to final delivery in 6-8 hours of screen time, and have better quality and more consistent results than ever. The class will be very interactive and I will be available the whole time to answer all your questions.
If this sounds like something that will be helpful for you I really hope you can be a part! Sign up here!
