Hey welcome! My name is Chris Orwig. I'm a photographer. And I'm a teacher among the faculty at the Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, California where we are right now. And it is a stunning evening. The sun is about to set. The shadows are getting long. And the light is just exquisite. And you know I love getting out in the grayed outdoors with camera in hand. There's something about taking pictures in moments like this that reminds me that photography somehow gives me more. I get more out of life by taking pictures.
And if you're like me, you're probably passionate about photography. And my passion for photography extends to my postproduction work as well. That's why I'm really excited about this course, Lightroom 3 Essentials, because here you're going to learn everything that you need to know in order to get started with Lightroom. And Lightroom is a really powerful tool. It's simple. It's elegant. It'll help you to be more creative and more effective. So what exactly will we cover here? We'll start off by providing you with a bit of an overview of Lightroom.
From there we'll get into the interface. We'll focus in on some of our shortcuts. We'll also take a look at the Grid View and the Loupe View and Library module. We'll take a look at how can rate and sort our photographs. We'll also look at how we can add metadata or how we can export our photos to popular photo sharing sites like Flickr. And in addition, because getting good at Lightroom is about getting good at photography, I thought it'd be fun to include a few photographic creative tip movies. And I'll intersperse those throughout the entirety of this course just to provide you with a bit of insight and inspiration along the way.
Now in closing, it really is a distinct honor and privilege to partner with you in a training adventure like this. Thanks for joining me on this one. Let the adventure begin!
