The Way Most People Teach Lightroom
(and why it’s wrong)
I hate to say this but I’m going to anyway… The way most people teach Lightroom (to me at least) is wrong. For starters, I’ve seen a lot of really complicated organizational systems. To a pro, Lightroom’s database and catalog system makes perfect sense. As a result, so many people glaze over the most important part of learning Lightroom – organizing, importing and catalogs.
That’s exactly where I changed my way of teaching. Instead of speeding past those topics, I spend a ton of time on them.
I feel that before you’re really going to get comfortable with editing your photos, you’ve got to be comfortable with finding them and organizing them in a way that makes sense. If you don’t “trust” Lightroom, you’re never going to get all of the benefits from it.
The other thing I’ve noticed is that a lot of photographers teaching Lightroom are (or used to be) working professionals. As a result, much of the workflow they teach is meant for, well… working professionals just like themselves.
And I totally get it! I think that works for a lot pro photographers. But, I think most photographers need something different.
I’m not a working pro. I’ll even admit that I never really was. I’ve had many paid shooting gigs, but it was never my job. I’m an educator first and foremost, and a guy that loves to shoot (that also has a career, family, and other commitments). Because of that, I don’t complicate the workflow. At the same time, I understand that you still want professional results. That’s why, in this training system, I show you just about every tool there is in Lightroom. But… at the same time, I let you know which ones I think are important, and which ones I think you can skip.
