    This is an excellent class. I have covered over half of BenWilmore's complete guide to Lightroom, which I needed as I have mostly played around with the obvious sliders in Lightroom until now. So fortunately I had a little familiarity with brushes. This is so helpful for me to now use what I learned with more detail and more skills specifically for portraits of my family. I am so excited to use all this! Thanks!!!! She is an excellent teacher.

    I am so glad I've gotten this class. I've been using Lightroom for several years but had no idea about so much of what I learned in this class. Kristina also has a great teaching style that gets the information explained in an easy to follow manner while also not spending a lot of extra time repeating everything. Her content is easy to follow and she also explains some of the "whys" to the techniques or settings. Looking forward to more classes from Kristina!
