Join Bryan O'Neil Hughes for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know to use this course, part of Lightroom Classic CC 2015 and Photoshop: Workflow Strategies.
- While this course is all about getting the most out of your photographic workflow, I want to stress that you don't need to be a professional photographer, not by any means. If you're shooting with your iPhone, that's perfectly fine. I'll have some tips and tricks for you with that. If you're shooting with your legacy camera, that's great. I've got some tips and tricks for that, as well, but when it comes to the software, especially when we get to the desktop, Lightroom CC, it's been around a long time, over a decade, Photoshop has been around for well over 25 years now. So, those are very mature products that have incredible capabilities, and it really comes down to what your interests are, what your level is, and how interested you are in different parts of the program.
So, know that that there are some incredible courses out there, and you can go much deeper if you want to learn more about Lightroom or Photoshop. I've got a number of different courses on both of those myself. They do lean towards photography, but if you're interested in going even deeper than that, my good friend Chris Orwig has a number of courses, as does Julieanne Kost, she's got all sorts of great stuff. So, this is a fantastic primer to make sure that your workflow is modernized, but if you want to go deeper, there's a lot of resources for you.
