Lightroom Editing Masterclass
Master image editing and become a Lightroom pro
Everything I know about Lightroom, all in once place.
What we'll cover in our 11 hours together:
Hey! Let's get to know what we'll be going through together in the masterclass. We'll also cover the different versions of Lightroom and which we'll be using to learn with.
2) Importing and organisation
We'll orient ourselves with the basics and a good foundational knowledge of how to organise our images, because things can get kind of out of hand when we're talking about hundreds of thousands of images, ya know?
3) Editing fundamentals
While this module has the word "fundamentals" in it, I assure you that even the most seasoned of Lightroom users will pick up a few new things they didn't know about the Develop tools in Lightroom. I go in to *technical detail* about how the tools work, rather than just sliding a slider and saying "look, it does this".
4) Local adjustments
Masking and local adjustments can really shape your images into unique pieces of art, and this module introduces you to the tools that do it well. This is where we introduce the new Masking feature for the first time; a tool that will change the way you edit in Lightroom forever.
5) Editing workflow
I take you through my exact workflow that I use for every single image. It's a workflow that has taken tens of thousands of edits to perfect, and it's one that I feel is the most efficient, scalable, and non-destructive methods you'll find out there.
6) Creative editing
If things weren't interesting enough by this point in the masterclass, they will be from this module. We get into some creative techniques using specific tools and I teach you some ways you can truly make your images unique and stand out from the crowd.
7) Building a visual aesthetic
While we won't really be using Lightroom much in this module, I feel it's important to cover the concepts of how to build a visual aesthetic, what style in photography truly is, and a few other concepts, so that you can really get an understanding of the fast-track towards being able to effectively communicate with your images through visual language.
8) Editing sessions
To finish up the masterclass, we spend hours upon hours editing my portfolio images in a real, raw, and unfiltered way. This real-world approach will guide your understanding towards what editing in Lightroom is really like from a professional photographer who does this every day. I'll talk through every step of the process and show you my favourite techniques to achieve some creative and unique looks that are cornerstones to my unique style and visual aesthetic.
Additional course information
How long does my course access last for?
Forever! This course has lifetime access across any device.
What if I don't like the course?
While I've put every effort into making this course as good as it can be, if you don't like it, I get it.
Within the first 7 days, if you've completed less than 10% of the course, I'm happy to provide you with a refund.*
*Please note that this only applies to regular payment methods. "Buy it now, pay later" payment options such as Afterpay and PayPal "Pay in 4" are not eligible for refund under any circumstances.
Is there a community section?
After having trialed many different approaches to communities, I find that having an online community based around a specific topic and paid material doesn't always lead to the right lasting mix of people, skills, and engagement.
Therefore, I've recently decided to depreicate the community section.
As an alternative, I offer an invite to my Discord channel, where many creatives hang out and talk about many different aspects of creativity and photography, with a far higher engagement and far more varied feedback and response.
You can find an invite link here: patkay.com/discordinvite.
Will you provide RAW images to edit with?
Unfortunately not. I decided to go the other route and rather than edit images and use examples that are average, I decided to make my examples all top quality portfolio-level images so that you can have the highest quality, most real-world professional experience in the course.
Because these images are my portfolio images, I won't be giving them out.
