Welcome to Lightroom for Photographers: The Complete Course!
This course is best watched in the order the lessons are laid out for best success. You’ll be taken through the entire process of learning and using Lightroom step-by-step.
First, you’ll learn your way around the software, then you’ll see how all the tools work and what they do. Finally, you’ll see how it all comes together with the complete workflow for processing landscape photos, portraits, macro, travel, street photography, and so on.

I’ve put together this PDF with the complete course outline so you know exactly what is included.

Raw files and practice images
The next bonus for you is the practice images that are provided so you can follow along with each of the lessons and techniques demonstrated. I encourage you to download and use them.
The link to download them will be provided on the page for Lesson 1. In that lesson, you will learn how to get started with Lightroom, and how to quickly and easily access the demo images.
If you’re brand new to Lightroom when you start this course, I recommend waiting until Lesson 1 before you import or start to work on the images. I’ll walk you through exactly how to do that when you get there.
It’ll be SUPER EASY, I promise!
Submitting questions related to each lesson
As the initial release of this course has a live broadcast and Q & A portion, I’ll be accepting questions about each lesson ahead of the broadcasts, where I will answer and demonstrate them LIVE and in person.
There is a form on each lesson page for you to submit any and all questions about what you just learned in that lesson. Feel free to use it and to ask any clarifying questions you may have. When the live broadcast is complete, the form for those lessons will be removed and you can ask your questions in the dedicated private Facebook group.
So, if you DO see a form to submit a question, that portion of the live broadcast has not yet occurred and you can ask your question. If you DON’T see a form, that portion of the course has had its live broadcast and the questions received were already answered.
At that point, the Q & A recording will be available on the page in place of the form, and the questions, along with timestamps to where they are in the video will be listed.
Photo Editing Terms Used Within the Course
Throughout the course, I may reference a photo editing term you may or may not be familiar with. It’s fairly important to understand the definition of the term or phrase if you want to truly understand how the tool works or what I’m describing within the lessons.
