09/21 Brown Bag Event – Using Lightroom To Maximize Your Workflow

Image of the Cliffs of Moher by Photographer Jeff Mauritzen.
Many of us have tried Lightroom, or currently use it as a part or our workflow. 
Are we getting the best from this program?
What else can we do to harness the potential power of Lightroom?
If you currently use this software, we’d love for you to join us at our September Brown Bag.

Jeff Mauritzen, an APA|DC Board Member, will be demonstrating his workflow in Lightroom, and leading a follow-up discussion for those who wish to share their own methods with the group. Jeff will be focusing briefly on the Library Module, and providing an in-depth look at the Develop Module, as he applies it to his own workflow.

You should take away an increased understanding of what you can do in Lightroom, and how you could apply some of its many features to your own workflow.

We hope to see you there!

 Whether you’ve been in photography for decades or just getting started, to succeed in today’s rapidly changing market you need to keep growing and adapting.

APA|DC offers a unique solution: a highly popular series of brown bag events in which professional photographers, in an informal discussion setting,  candidly share thoughts about what is and isn’t working, discuss best practices, and sharpen the skills they need to succeed.

Hosted exclusively by APA|DC, these events give you unfiltered insights and answers you simply can’t find anywhere else.

If you’ve never attended one of our Brown Bag Meetings, they are basically a structured informal discussion, no set program, where we discuss and share our ideas and thoughts regarding a set topic.   Even if you feel you have nothing to learn from our topic it is always beneficial for other members to hear from other experienced photographers their thoughts and ideas.  Remember, our goal at APA is to elevate the level and quality of all our work, for all our members.
