Upcoming Classes

I teach classes several times a year at Photoworks in Glen Echo Park, Bethesda MD and at the HILL CENTER on Capitol Hill in Washington DC.  I also offer private tutoring sessions for students who need schedule flexibility or have specific needs that are better handled outside a group setting.

Introduction to Adobe Lightroom Classic for Digital Photography

March 15 - April 19, 2023 (6 sessions)
7-9:30 pm Wednesdays
Tuition: $360  

Learn how to organize your digital photographs and bring them to life with adjustments that are powerful and easy to learn. Work with photographs from your camera, phone or scanner and push your photography in new directions. The class will include live software demonstrations plus hands-on practice with your own images. 

What you will learn:

  • How to look for the story behind your photo and bring that forward to viewers.
  • How to adjust your photo’s tone, color and texture to make an engaging, beautifully rendered image.
  • How to organize your photos and import them into Lightroom from camera and phone.
  • How to use Lightroom's AI tools to automatically select elements of your photo like a sky, an object, a color, one or more people including parts of their body like their face, eyes, teeth or hair.
  • How to export your photos for email, printer or social media.

The focus of the class is entirely screen-based so it will be held via Zoom.   Sessions will be recorded and posted on Youtube so you can refer to them later.  Students will also be given access to a large library of Google docs which provide details on the techniques covered and reduce the need to take notes.

The class has a maximum capacity of 6 participants so that each student can receive one-on-one attention with their images.


  • Skill level: Beginner. 
  • Minimum Age: 16. 
  • Software: Adobe Photography Plan subscription  (10 GB plan recommended).
