Review from previous student:
"I am participating in the Lightroom Class with John Munno which contains 3 modules. The first module, Lightroom Library, is an essential first step in beginning the post-processing activity. John demonstrated his actual procedure when he loads his photos into Lightroom from the deleting of poor shots to the rating of the photos that were the ones that he would use to edit and keep. The organizational process for sorting the photos by subject, interest was a main focus. Knowing these first steps really helped me to sort through my photos and put them in proper folders so that they will be very easily accessible. I am very much looking forward to the Editing Module! Thank you to John for providing this easy, fun and affordable way of learning Lightroom!"
I look forward to helping you organize, catalog, develop and use your photographs easily and more enjoyable and taking your photography to the next level.
It will be lots of fun.
