Welcome to Lightroom Love. This post is the first step in sharing with the world my learnings on Adobe Lightroom, arguably the most powerful image management and editing software on the planet.
I’ve been writing away on this blog for over a year now, getting it ready for your consumption. I want to teach Lightroom the way I see it. I want people to conquer some of the issues that they have with it, and to help you learn to love Lightroom as much as I do.
This blog is going to tackle Lightroom from front to back. I’ll be bringing you posts for one whole year, teaching Lightroom in a way that’s easy to understand no matter what type of photographer that you are. Three times a week for 52 weeks, I’ll bring you my knowledge on Lightroom.
One of the hardest things about building an instructional blog is knowing where to start. As I designed the flow of the blog, I struggled with how to teach Lightroom. I wanted to write really basic posts that would allow beginners to get started from scratch, but I also wanted to provide some advanced content for those of you that are already familiar with Lightroom.
What I’ve arrived at is this: we’re going to spend some significant time setting up Lightroom and organize our images, then move along to the Library module to see how we can manage our big image libraries. Then, we’ll dive into Developing our images, editing them to perfection. After that, we’ll move all over the place with exciting Lightroom features you probably aren’t aware of.
If at any time you have feedback for me, or need more help, please leave a comment or hit the contact page.. It’s my chance to interact with you and help you learn Lightroom. There’s also my contact page to get in touch directly if you need anything.
Whether you’re a seasoned Lightroom veteran or someone who is just getting started, I have something for you in this blog. Promise. I hope you’ll stick around long enough to learn to love Lightroom as much as I do.
