Course Summary

Day 01 of our Lightroom course in Dubai gets started with Adobe Lightroom Classic’s interface and understand how Lightroom can help you stay organized and on point with all your Instagram and print needs. We’ll go through Lightroom’s powerful sensei based cataloguing system in the Library Module. We’ll be creating our catalogues from scratch and will also have a look at putting your older photos in order in your old catalogs.

We’ll go through the ins and outs of Lightroom’s amazing import utility which is definitely one of the best out there when it comes to copying, moving or adding images into your Lightroom library along with adding Copyright information to all your images right at the first point of contact. Once the images are in, then we’ll have a look at flagging, rating and assigning & filtering based on keywords, Face Tags and Geotags.

The second day begins with having a little step back and discussing the Rules of Composition in Photography. Be it the Rule of Thirds, from Diagonals to Triangles, Golden Spiral to Golden Ratio, Leading Lines to Perspectives and Horizons, we’ll understand all these principles to improve our images a great deal.

With all these principles understood, we’ll go ahead and learn about Lightroom’s fantastic Cropping and Straightening tools in the Develop Module not only to apply the afore-mentioned rules and principles but also to prepare and re-purpose our images for Instagram posts & stories, your web portfolio and all the various aspect ratios of digital and print media.

Our second session of the day of this lightroom course in Dubai will bring another power packed topic of Histograms. We’ll discuss the Blacks & Whites, Shadows & Highlights and the Mid-tones. And then we’ll map these various tones with the Basic Tonal sliders to achieve much better control. We’ll end the day with learning to apply the same tonal adjustment on Black and White photos and exporting our images in various file formats.

Now that we’re able to work our way in and out of Lightroom, we’ll shift gears and learn about the intermediate concepts of Lightroom both in the Library Module and Develop Module. So on the third day of our Adobe Lightroom Course in Dubai, we’ll start the day by understanding Lightroom Collections & Collection Sets.

And we’ll also learn to make full use of Smart Collections. We’ll be adding and removing images in Collections based on Keywords, Tags and various other parameters to keep our files organized and neat without having to create multiple copies of the same files and saving a ton of disc space.

On the flip side in Develop Module, we’ll move towards the Secondary Adjustments. First up we’ll discuss the Tonal Curves and their relation to the Histogram. And to have a better grasp on the Curves, we’ll map them first to the sliders and then we’ll move on and learn to adjust these Curves manually by adding points that affect much more of the targeted tonal areas of an image.

Tonal values aside, we’ll then have a look at the color values or the Chromaticity if you will. We’ll have certain colours in an image affected by HSL (Hue, Saturation and Luminance) sliders in the HSL panel. And then we’ll end the day with adding some Post-Processing Effects as in Sharpening certain areas of an image, Reducing Monochromatic and Color Noise from an image.

We’ll also be learning about the Post-Crop Vignetting and Film Grain effects to add much more drama in your images.

The first session of Day-04 in the Adobe Lightroom Course in Dubai brings a little more advanced and exciting concepts to the mix. And that is in the form of Correcting Lens Distortions, removing Chromatic Aberrations and retouching the images with Cloning and Healing brushes.

Adobe Lightroom Classic also helps you get rid of the Red Eyes and Pet Eyes right within the Develop Module and we’ll go through the Red Eye brush sort of controls. Having understood the global adjustments, we’ll move towards more of the targeted adjustment tools.

We’ll do a bunch of exercises with Graduated & Radial Filters and the Adjustment Brushes with range mask sliders for greater control on targeted adjustments. Another cool thing about the range masks is that these can be used to Dodge and Burn your images right within Lightroom.

Once all our primary and secondary adjustments are done, we’ll then move on to creating looks using our Split Toning controls. By this point we’ll be well versed with pretty much all the sophisticated tonal and grading tools that we’ll be making use of all the Develop Module panels to create Cinematic and many other specialized looks.

And the best part is, we can save all our hard work in the form snapshot settings for the same image or in the form of presets to be applied on any other image or images at once in the same catalogue. And that’s not it, we can also export these preset files to be used by anyone on any of their catalogues.

By the last day we’ll be proficient enough with Lightroom’s amazing Non-Destructive workflow and pretty much all the technical aspects of Library and the Develop Modules. And that enables us to move towards learning a bunch of other Export based Modules in Books, Slideshow, Print and Web Modules. But before we go ahead and discuss about those, we’ll talk a little bit about stacking and merging images for Panoramas and HDRs right within Lightroom.

By this time in our Adobe Lightroom Course in Dubai, we’ll be all set to put our artwork out there and we’ll be learning exactly that. We’ll be going to do some small projects for creating Booklets, Slideshows, Web Galleries and quality printouts. Lastly, we’ll learn to stitch our images in Photoshop to generate panoramas and multi-focus image blends to create hyper-realistic images that are specifically very common in Product Photography.
