I am super happy I took this class with Nick Sinnott.
The class was online so we were all able to see the example images being presented on screen and the curriculum was easy to follow. I thoroughly enjoyed completing the assigned homework, which we reviewed weekly. I knew that I needed help with my LR catalog since it was starting to get out of hand. I am slowly getting it back on track using keywords, ratings, and other tools shown to us in class.
The class also touched on using various tools in Photoshop and introduced me to Luminar NEO. I find myself going back to previously processed photos and giving them another look to see if I can improve them even further with my newly gained knowledge.
I would recommend this class to anyone that is trying to get their catalog in order and hone their LR and PS skills. The addition of Luminar NEO took it to the next level.
Prior to taking this class i had a basic level of knowledge in Lightroom and Luminar, and no Photoshop experience. The segment on how to import and manage folders and use of keywords is a very useful starting point. The course significantly increased my understanding of all three programs and when to use each or a combination of all three. The online format works well. Highly recommend the course.
Ultimate Workflow is an exceptionally well-designed course. It weaves Lightroom, Photoshop and Luminar into a very thoughtful workflow – taking advantage of the best of each application. Federica Ghidelli has a great teaching style, and the on-line format works well.
Federica is an excellent instructor with consummate knowledge of how to incorporate LR, PS and Luminar into a workflow that can be used as taught or.customized according to one’s preferences. First rate course.
I signed up for the on-line Ultimate Workflow Class with two points of hesitation: Would the on-line format work? . . . and . . . How could they possibly cover three complex programs in 6 weeks?
Really happy I took the class! The on-line experience was flawless; with an extra advantage of enabling students to work on images at home on their desktop – while Nick demonstrated via Zoom. Plus – no commute or hunt for parking!
The class reviews highlights of Lightroom and Photoshop; then spends the bulk of the time in Luminar. Luminar is a powerful new program with many of the Photoshop benefits (think layers!) in a faster/simpler/more intuitive format.
You’ll leave the class with a workflow for post-processing (When to use each program? How to sequence edits? How to ensure the three applications play nicely together?).
I learned new/practical stuff in every class – highly recommend for individuals who have been using Lightroom/Photoshop – and have started exploring Luminar. It will change how you edit!
I loved everything about this class. Zoom was great…the next best thing to being there. I had a good knowledge about Lr, but I was weak in Ps and Luminar 4. No worries, this was reviewed in the class and repeatedly gone over. Nick presents the material logically and slowly so everyone had an opportunity to think about what they are doing and you have sufficient time to ask questions. Everyone’s questions were important and everyone was treated special. I can’t believe how much my editing skills improved. Without hesitation I would highly recommend this class to anyone who wanted to improve their post-processing skills.
I just completed the Ultimate Workflow Class, taught with a team approach by Federica and Nick, and had another wonderful experience. I have taken Photo I, II, and III, Lightroom Basic and Advanced, and Photoshop I. In every class the information was well organized, presented with clarity and great patience, and aimed at a range of ability levels. The UWC was a blending of Lightroom, Photoshop and Luminar, that helped integrate the best features of each program and guided you, based on the photo you are editing, as to which features to use and the proper sequencing in your workflow. It enhanced my knowledge of LR and PS and opened the door to amazing possibilities with Luminar.
I recently took the ultimate workflow class and thought it was great. I have used Lightroom for years but so I was surprised about the number of new insights I had with respect to Lightroom. Luminar is an interesting tool with some amazing features. But without the class I don’t think I would have ever figured out how to use all these tools effectively together. The class is well thought out and really insightful. I would highly recommend the class and hope that the school develops some follow on classes for more advanced processing with the workflow.
I learned a lot in this class, despite having missed one session. It was my first attempt at using Photoshop and I learned just the right stuff to make it useful in my own work.
The class presented a proposed workflow designed to take full advantage of the best tools Lightroom, Photoshop, and Luminar offer. I think it succeeded in that endeavor. I now understand enough about all three programs to make each useful as needed.
I will not always use the workflow recommended as following it completely creates a plethora of copies of each photo changed. I wish to keep from that as much as possible.
My one suggestion would be that you include recommendations for managing that plethora of files from the three different programs. I have been stacking the files from each photo with the final version on top always. You guys may have other ideas that would work better.
Always enjoy having Frederica as my instructor. She is very knowledgeable in her trade and always, always willing to answer questions, or help further Amy understanding with individual help. It’s the extra mile that all the instructors I’ve had at the school go to bring students back. It has brought me back and will continue to do so.
