Class Introduction

Hi, My name is Jared Platt, and I am here to teach you all about light room. Now I'm a professional photographer, and I mostly photograph people, weddings, portrait, Children, events and even commercial photography. But I also lecture about photography, and I've traveled the world quite a bit, either taking photographs or talking about it. And I love taking landscape and travel photography. In fact, when I was younger, when I was studying photography, I thought I was gonna be the next Ansel Adams. That's what I wanted to do. That was, I loved landscape photography. And so I'm just like you. I love to take photographs. It doesn't matter to me whether it's people, whether it's objects, whether it's landscape photography, whether it's travel, photography. I just love it. It is an activity. It is not just my job, but it is also my passion. So throughout this workshop, I'm going to do teach you how to take your images and make them better inside of light room. I'm also going to show you how...

toe organize them so that you never lose a photograph again, and I'm going to show you how to share those images with world because let's face it as photographers, that's what we want the most is to take what we have seen and share it with others, so let's get started.

Class Description


  • Read your histogram and light meter to get the perfect exposure in the camera.
  • Make Panoramic and HDR images that look natural
  • Take your images from good to great in Lightroom.
  • Organize and find your images quickly anywhere, anytime.
  • Share your images with the world and even make a website to share your photography.
  • Retouch and enhance your images with targeted adjustments, sky replacements, removing and replacing distractions and much more.


No matter what camera you use or what you photograph, your images will always pass through the post-production process before you share them with the world. Taking a photograph at the camera is only the first step in the process of photography. It takes a great image capture and great editing to make a great photograph but it also takes great organization to keep track of it so you can share the beauty you have created. Jared Platt is here to teach you how to create high-quality images and edit your images in Adobe Lightroom to make them even better.

In this class, you will learn how to get better captures with the camera and learn how to use Adobe Lightroom to edit and organize your images. You will learn how to organize, adjust, retouch, and share your images from your computer or your mobile device. You will learn how to add and retrieve your images from anywhere, create whenever inspiration strikes, and share your creations anytime you like. You will be amazed at what you can do to your images in seconds. You will even learn how to create panoramic and HDR images for those complicated landscape shots and how to replace a sky to make your images more dramatic. Jared will take you through each and every step of the process of capture and post-production in Lightroom.

When you are finished with this course, you will have the knowledge that will set you free from your desk.

Lightroom is Adobe’s answer to simple and powerful image editing and organization. Lightroom is always connected to the Adobe Creative Cloud so that your images are available on your desktop and laptop computers, your smartphone, iPad, and even on any internet browser. It is a cloud-based service that gives you everything you need to create, edit, organize, store, and share your photos across any device. Lightroom is much more approachable and simple than Adobe’s Lightroom Classic (the professional level industry workhorse). Whether you are new to Lightroom or are using Lightroom Classic, this call is indispensable in your photographic education.


  • Photo enthusiasts.
  • Photographers who want to enhance and perfect their images.
  • Landscape and travel photographers.
  • Photo artists.
  • Anyone who wants to organize and edit their photos.
  • Bloggers and influencers who post photographs.

Great great great class: Jarett explains the Lightroom workflow clearly and thoroughly. I am not a native English person and my English is quite poor but Jarett explains in a very simply and clearly way everything and I understand all chapters perfectly. Thanks guys, great job. I highly recommend this lesson to everybody,


I have watched each and everyone of Jared's classes on Creative Live and they are first class. I've waited a long time for a new one and now we have it and it's another gem. This is a wonderful overview of Lightroom and will repay watching sections (or all of it) several times to absorb the wealth of information presented. For anyone new to Lightroom, this is just what the doctor ordered.


Really in depth, so helpful! Thanks
