Overview
Are you capturing images with great potential but after editing they still lack the WOW factor? Or maybe you've never edited your images and you want to know how. My online Learn to Love Lightroom course will help you discover powerful & easy-to-use Lightroom features to transform your images to works of art. I'll help you become proficient in Lightroom focusing on simple step-by-step learning so you can create images that truly reflect your talent as a photographer!
What you'll experience
This online course will help you to understand Lightroom as a complete photo management tool, starting with importing your images, and rating and cataloguing them to easily keep track of your image library. We'll then explore the Lightroom editing panels explaining how each one works and when to use it. We'll cover the global adjustments you should be making to all your images, as well as selective adjustments using filters and colours to enhance the natural tones in your shots and make them pop. We'll also discuss how to set up presets to cut down on your editing time. There are also simple yet effective ways to incorporate Photoshop into your Lightroom editing without having to be a pro, so we'll cover how to get better results by using both when faced with challenging edits. It's also important to understand how to export and print your images to retain quality for printing so we'll discuss how to do this. And we'll discuss how you can seamless work between Lightroom on the desktop and mobile for quick and easy access to your images.

Gear requirements

COMPUTER / SMARTPHONE

You should have access to a desktop or laptop with a camera/webcam installed, however if you can only connect via audio this is OK. You can also use your smartphone for the course, but you will get the best results from using a larger screen.

LIGHTROOM

If you don't already use Lightroom Classic (Desktop version) and you want to try it out while participating in the course, you can sign up to a free Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop 7-day trial (after that it's AU $14.95 per month).

INTERNET CONNECTION

I recommend you have high speed broadband access to enable the best viewing experience via YouTube.

CAMERA AND LENSES

Ideally you'll already have a camera with interchangeable lenses (i.e. DSLR or mirrorless camera), but if you are just starting out in photography and want to know how to edit from a best practice approach, then this will absolutely help you to create better images regardless of whether you are using a smartphone or a camera.

Testimonials

"Meghan is a great photography tutor. She explains things clearly and precisely and takes the time to make sure you understand. She knows a wide variety of techniques and styles for learners to try."

Craig - Matamata

Meghan's workshop is a great mix of useful skills and fundamental concepts as well as lots of fun. Meghan is such a lovely person that would like to share anything that you will be happy to spend two full days with her. The workshop helped me a lot.

Lily - China

Having followed Meghan and her captivating portrayal of New Zealand’s landscape on instagram for over 5 years, I’ve finally had the opportunity to join her 5-week online live photography course. Meghan has a gift to explain the “how to” of landscape photography in a very clear, easy to understand and enjoyable manner. Her depth of knowledge in every aspect will prove a more than worthwhile investment for anyone who enjoys this form of photography,  whether novice or experienced.

David - Christchurch

Real, honest, down to earth and very talented photographer. Very helpful with all the little things, takes time to explain information and makes sure it is understood. Just completed an online Zoom photography course which was well run and incredibly informative..

Robbie - Australia

Meghan is an amazing tutor. Her effective communication and course outline was exactly what I was looking for. I bought my first camera a few weeks before this course and lucky enough this course covered camera settings and composition which every beginner looks forward to.  From looking after your gear, settings, pro tips, composition and editing, this course was every beginners dream come true. I look forward to the next stage of this course and mind you this was quite affordable and full of knowledge. I have become a better photographer. Thank you and I look forward to more content from you.

Ash - Queenstown

Meghan is not only an awesome photographer but a wonderful teacher. I love her delivery style and this course is a great introduction to landscape photography. Meghan is also very encouraging and is very open and detailed with sharing her knowledge during her classes. The course structure was well thought out and presented in easy to digest modules. I look forward to learning more from Meghan as she grows her class schedule. Highly recommend!

Lystra - UK

Meghan has been the most helpful and caring photographer I have had the pleasure to meet, she has that special quality (and patience) that very few are blessed with to be the perfect teacher and along with her amazing photography is a mentor to us all... I have been so privileged to have her assistance on my learning journey, something I will be forever grateful for...

Robyn -  Otago

Totally amazing time with Meghan.  Her knowledge is amazing and the willingness to teach is fantastic. I never thought i could learn so much in such a short time but I did. I highly recommend Meghan to anyone wanting to learn and develop their skills. I cant wait to work with Meghan again soon.
