- Welcome, my name's Chris Orwig. I'm a photographer and I'm a teacher. I'm on the photography faculty at the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California, where we are 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 gonna do is focus in on light room and in this training title, you're gonna learn everything that you need to know in order to take advantage of this amazing tool. Now because light room is a tool that was designed for photographers, I thought it'd 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.
