BOUTIQUE PROGRAM: Mobile Photography with Lightroom CC
Limited Capacity filling up

Chase Jarvis said it first, and he was right: the best camera is the one that you have with you. With each update, our smartphone cameras get better and better. While they aren't a complete substitute for DSLRs, they can certainly hold their own. In this session, you'll learn how to make the most of your smartphone camera and unlock all of the features for capture made possible by Adobe Lightroom CC for Mobile. The 90 minutes will be spent outside on the resort property during golden hour. We'll have time for a Lightroom CC camera tutorial before going off to photograph independently or within small groups. During this time, Pei will do a few brief shooting demos on finding the light and working a scene. In the end, we'll reconvene to share our images and experiences, while Pei answers attendee questions.

Learning Objectives:

- Learn to set up the quick launch widget for the Lightroom CC camera
- Learn the features of the Lightroom CC camera, including exposure compensation, manual focus, and shooting in RAW
- Understand the mobile photography workflow
