Instead of being a course you watch from start to finish, we've designed this tutorial to be a series of individual tips and tricks. That way you can watch what you need to know and get on with your project as quickly as possible. Some of the things you'll learn in this course include the benefits and technical details of camera raw and aperture, how your shutter speed affects photos, getting to understand ISO speeds, working non-destructively in Photoshop and many more tips. By the end of this Photoshop and Lightroom training, you'll have a solid understanding of some key techniques you'll need to know whenever you're working on professional photography projects. Software required: Photoshop CC 2015, Lightroom CC 2015.

Introduction and Project Overview Hi everyone, my name is Dan Lefebvre. For over a decade I've worked around the U. S. for a number of boutique studios, as well as larger companies, like the U. S. Airforce, Digital-Tutors, and now Pluralsight. During that time I've had the honor of winning awards for my cinematography and photography projects for a wide range of clients. This course is a bit different from other courses in that it's not intended to be something you watch from start to finish. While you're certainly welcome to, this course is intended to be a collection of individual lessons that can help you while you're working on your own projects. If you need something, you can watch one or two lessons, and then get on with your project. With that in mind, we'll move pretty quickly, and for some of the more tedious processes, we'll only have time to cover the key techniques you need to know. Our tools of choice will be a mixture of Lightroom and Photoshop, bouncing between the two depending on what the project needs. I'm really excited to share these techniques with you, so with that, let's get started with the first lesson.
