A little while back I was asked to give a talk to our local Photography Meetup Group on Lightroom, and so before the talk I asked people to submit questions. My thought was that I could just stand up there for an hour or so and answer questions from people. However, the only question I was asked (by several people) was, “What is Lightroom and why would I want to use it, anyway?” So much for that idea… Since it seemed I was going to have to create an actual presentation, my next thought was that before I could talk about Lightroom I needed to cover some of the basics of digital photography just so everyone was in the same place. I created the presentation using PowerPoint, and today I created what amounts to a video version of that presentation. Clicking on the image below will take you to the video. It’s about 1/2 hour long, but if you’re a photographer I trust you’ll gain something from it. This post is complementary to but different from our ‘Photography and Colour Management‘ post.
