Lightroom Classic has just received a major upgrade! Whether you are just learning to edit and organize your photos with Lightroom, or if you just need to get caught up with the new features, this is for you! Over the course of 6 Wednesday evenings, January 5 to February 9, 2022 from 7:30PM to 8:30 (Eastern), we will explore using Lightroom to make your photos beautiful - with editing techniques both new and old, color theory and correction, even composition. We'll examine profiles and presets, global and local adjustments, the new mask filter, the brush tool, radial gradient, linear gradient, and all of the important features to help you improve your images. Besides being an outstanding program for editing photos, Lightroom is also a wonderful organizer of your images, whether you have one hundred or tens of thousands. There will be assignments every week to help you put into practice the concepts covered in each lesson. Your works will be gently but honestly critiqued to help you to grow as a photographer and an editor.
Join us as we photograph the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains, the most popular of America's National Parks for a reason! We'll photograph intimate landscapes and great vistas, from streams, cascades, and overlooks to historic buildings.
This four day-three night workshop will combine photographing beautiful locations with learning the techniques that help you to capture that beauty. Each participant will be given assistance at their current level of knowledge and skill. Morning sessions will begin before sunrise and last until around 10:30. Then it's time for late breakfast and learning/relaxing/processing photos. After lunch on day 2, there will be a session in the meeting room where we can share photos and work on processing images. Evening sessions will begin around 4PM and last until after sunset/blue hour. Then it will be time for a late dinner and bed. You may want to carry some snacks for when you get hungry! The sessions are built around the best light, not around meals.
Some of the locations will be very easily accessed. Some are right there at the parking lot. Others will require a bit of a hike. Our longest planned hike is only about 1.5 miles but has an elevation gain of 460 feet. Hiking boots are recommended. Waders are optional but sometimes allow you to reach the best vantage point in a stream.
The Talley Ho Inn in Townsend, TN will be the base of our operations for the workshop. They are offering a discounted group rate for these dates and have rooms set aside for you. When you make your reservation tell them you are with Thomas Yackley Fine Art Photography. This is intended to be a small group for optimum assistance for every photographer. Participation will be limited to six to give everyone the most possible attention. Thomas Yackley Fine Art Photography is a licensed educational workshop leader in the National Parks.

Topics will include exposure triangle, highlight alerts, focus techniques, focus stacking, composition, color, HDR for extreme contrast situations, moving water techniques, close-ups, using live view, and whatever anyone needs in the field!
What's included: Preliminary Zoom meeting to help you prepare for the workshop, all sessions on location and in the classroom with an instructor approved and permitted with the National Park Service, a post-workshop zoom meeting with all participants to view and critique some of the outstanding photos of the trip.
