Essential & Advanced Lightroom Training

In this series of tutorial videos & eBooks, professional landscape photographer Alister Benn reveals not just how Adobe Lightroom can help you with its incredibly powerful features, but how to use them creatively in your own images to create your own signature styles. We were able to arrange an offer for PictureCorrect readers which has now ended, sorry about that, stay tuned to see what’s next!

The set includes suggested exercises designed to provide practical, hands-on experience with the key learning points in each module. These are not just e-Modules that focus on teaching you what the tools do—but instead they’re designed to give you the why and how you can use them to create images that are yours–expressive and meaningful. Videos focus on the practical applications of the theories presented in the ebooks.

Starting with the first book, A Practical Guide to Exposure, you’ll learn how to get a great photo in-camera so that the post-processing skills you learn in the other two books will leave you with the best image possible.

Simply put, the capture phase of image-making is critical to get the very best exposure in the camera, and this is often quite different from what we want our final images to look like. Digital sensors require lots of data to make them sing to their full potential—dark exposures will massively limit the processing and creative possibilities—even if you aim to make a dark image.

This package is meant to reveal pro secrets for making high quality and personal images.
