Laptops are required for this one as this will be a fully interactive experience. Students will follow along every step of the way over this two-day boot camp as Lightroom guru, Clifford Pickett, walks you through every aspect of the software suite, covering the essentials, workflow strategies, tips and tricks, importing, development, slideshows, Lightroom Mobile, printing, tethering, syncing, virtual copies, presets, targeted adjustments, noise, sharpness and everything in between.
