Welcome. My name is Chris Orwig. I'm a photographer and I'm a teacher. I'm on the photography faculty of the Brookes Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California where we're standing right now, and I absolutely love what I get to do for a living. And you know it's a privilege to share that with you. In this training title what we're going to do is focus in on Lightroom. And in this training title you're going to learn everything that you need to know in order to take advantage of this amazing tool. Now because Lightroom is a tool that was designed for photographers, I thought it would be kind of fun to include a few photo tips in this training title as well.

Well finally, thanks for joining me on this one. I look forward to working with you. Bye for now.
