Tutorial Instructor: Aaron Nace

Perfect your photos. From start to finish.

This Lightroom 101 & 201 PRO Bundle is fun, easy, and full of information. If you are interested in workflow, 16 bit editing, copyright, folder structure, importing, exporting, and making your images come to life, this is the perfect tutorial bundle for you!

  • Importing and Exporting

    Lightroom 101 starts off exactly as if we opened the program for the first time — completely empty. Learn how to import your photos into Lightroom to make cataloging and editing easier. Learn how to create Keyword Presets, Metadata Presets, add Copyright Protection, and convert your RAW files to a more streamlined format. Importing your images into Lightroom correctly will make file organization and image protection easier than ever. When you complete your editing process in Lightroom it is time to export your photos. Exporting images from Lightroom involves choosing options from color space to image size and even output sharpening. Learn the correct settings for different types of exports and learn how to create presets to save time.
  • File Structure / Organization / Workflow

    Organizing a few photo shoots is simple, but what happens when you have thousands of photos taken over many years? File structure and organization is a very important part of the photography process many people look over. Learn the same file structure used by professional photographers to save time and headaches. Learn the workflow system we have been developing for years at Phlearn. From import to edit to export, we make sure everything is well organized!

Lightroom 101

Lightroom 101 is designed to familiarize you with all the buttons, commands, and features that Lightroom has to offer. Learn your way around every tool in the Library and Develop Module in Lightroom. Once you have a good understanding of how the program works you will be ready to start editing, that is where Lightroom 201 comes in.

  • HDR

    High Dynamic Range images combine multiple exposures together to display detail in the highlights, mid-tones, and shadows. HDR is a recent addition to Lightroom (v. CC 2014). In this example we composite a portrait into an HDR image, combining multiple techniques for a stunning final photo.
  • Panorama

    A Panorama is made by stitching multiple photos together, making them appear as one large photo. Panoramas are popular with landscape photographers or anyone trying to photograph a large scene. Learn to use Lightroom (V. CC 2014) to combine images into a Panorama.
  • Create Multiple Versions of Your Images

    Take advantage of Virtual Copies in Lightroom to create multiple versions of your images. In this tutorial, we create 4 versions of each image, from black and white to cross processed. The next time you deliver images to your client, try including multiple editing variations. The variations won’t take much time and your client will see them as added value.

Lightroom 201

Lightroom 201 will open worlds of editing techniques you can use to make every photo stunning. Follow along as Aaron edits 25 images from start to finish — all in Lightroom. Aaron Nace is known for being a Photoshop Expert and now he brings the same approach to teaching Lightroom!

  • Edit Over 25 Images From Start to Finish

    After learning Lightroom it is time to work on some real-world examples. We sent a team of photographers, models, and stylists to the desert to produce images for this tutorial. Follow along as we edit every image from start to finish in Lightroom. The experience is like hanging out with an expert and watching them work on images, and you have the ability to pause, rewind, and follow along. Every photo you take is special and must be treated so. What works on one image may not work on another, the same will be true with your photos. That is why we edit 25 RAW images from start to finish. Something about teaching a man to fish…
  • Work Smarter, Not Harder

    Spending hours on editing a single image to perfection can be fun at times, but what happens when you have hundreds of images to edit? Chances are you want to complete the job as fast as possible while still getting great results. Lightroom is designed to make your editing process FAST. After editing the first image in a series, use “Sync Settings” to apply your changes to the rest. You will find yourself editing entire groups of photos in the time it took you to do one. Who knows what you could do with all this free time.

Navigate Lightroom Like a Pro

Lightroom 201 will open worlds of editing techniques you can use to make every photo stunning. Follow along as Aaron edits 25 images from start to finish — all in Lightroom. Aaron Nace is known for being a Photoshop Expert and now he brings the same approach to teaching Lightroom!

  • RAW Files Included

    Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is a magical program that allows you to unlock the hidden potential of your images. For best results you needed to work with the original unadulterated files — RAW files. These images are 16bit, whereas a .jpg is only 8bit. In short, you are working with much more information, and with more information comes more power. More info on 8bit vs. 16bit. Because Lightroom excels in editing 16bit RAW files, that is exactly what we include in this tutorial bundle. The Lightroom 101 & 201 Bundle includes 25 stunning RAW files. Use these images to follow along with the tutorials or practice on your own. Once you download the tutorial bundle they are yours. Just don’t go putting these images in your portfolio – your own images belong there.
  • Retouching in Lightroom

    Photoshop and retouching expert Aaron Nace brings his expertise to a new product — Adobe Lightroom. You will be blown away at how easy retouching in Lightroom can be. In this tutorial we teach you how to look at your image as a whole and retouch globally. Rather than focus on every single pore, we take a more broad approach to retouching. A person’s body is usually a different color than their face, which tends to appear more red. You will learn how to see differences in skin tone and correct for variation. We offer a simple approach to dodging and burning that gives you complete control without being too technical. Lightroom CC 2014 now offers the Clone Stamp Tool and the Healing Brush Tool for blemish removal. We show you how to use both tools to remove acne and other skin blemishes, keeping skin texture in tact.
  • Global and Local Image Editing

    Image editing exists in two parts, both equally important — Global and Local Adjustments. Global Image Editing works on the image as a whole. Do you need to make your whole image brighter? Did you nail your White Balance? Would you like more Saturation in your landscape? These are things Global Image Editing will fix. Local editing effects one area of an image, including things like sharpening eyes in a portrait. Lightroom 201 teaches both methods, offering you greater image editing power.

    This is a revision of my previous review. The guys at Phlearn split the file into three sections and it worked
    perfectly. I am now enjoying the lightroom videos and can say they live up to the quality I’ve come to expect
    from Phlearn videos. Thanks for the help guys!

    I’m only a third of my way into the the tutorials and I’ve already learned so much. I’ve always used Photoshop and over the years I’ve sighed over my photo storage situation. I knew Lightroom was something I should be doing but didn’t know where to start. Now I’m ready to use Lightroom, get organized, and focus more on the creative side!

    I bought the Lightroom 101&201 bundle on sale and I think it was definitely worth even the regular price. I was already familiar with working in LR but the tutorials are well done and provided some tips and tricks I wasn’t aware of. For someone just getting started out with LR these two courses would be very helpful in my opinion. Aaron does a great job of explaining how to work with LR and, just as important as the actual content, does a great job of delivering the information in a way that keeps the viewer engaged and wanting to learn more. I’ve watched a lot of tutorials over YouTube, Vimeo, etc. and there’s almost nothing worse than getting good information poorly delivered. That’s definitely NOT a problem with Phlearn content. I’ll be investing in other tutorials in the future without a doubt.
