When I’m giving a Lightroom Workshop, I definitely want to get my students out of the classroom and into the world to make images. I do this for two reasons: A) I want them to have fresh/exciting new stuff to import and process and B) even if you enjoy working on the computer, three straight days of sitting in a darkened room listening to me explain things is enough to put anyone into a vegetative state!
So in Santa Domingo, Dominican Republic, we had lunch in the Colonial Zone and then went and did some street photography for about an hour. Then we came back to the classroom and had 30 minutes to import, sort, edit/develop, and prepare a 5 image slideshow for peer review. We had a great time and my students did some really impressive work!
Anyway, of course I did the assignment as well and my selected images are below (with a bonus pigeon shot), developed entirely within Lightroom!
like the b/w’s.
the pigeon looks like he might be dancing! were ya singing to him?
