I took the Lightroom Catalog online class and found it quite helpful. I've been using Lightroom for 2 years, after having taken a two day class. But I did not pay as much attention as I should have to the catalog part-- I was eager to get to the editing part -- and so there things in the Catalog part of the course that I did not properly absorb. Your class filled in a lot of holes for me, and is an excellent introduction to an important part of Lightroom. I also like the ability to go back through the class and rewatch and review.
It is just wonderful to have the recordings easily accessible in the LR library class. I wanted to write to let you know that I think you are an absolute treasure. Photography (and the means to manage the product with program like Lightroom) has long been a goal of my mine. However, the technical learning curves are a real challenge for me. The way you broke down the class into easily understood modules and short video lessons on one function at a time was brilliant. It enables the student to attempt one function at a time, watch the video, try it again, until it’s possible to take the training wheels off.
In addition to your wonderful organization of the lessons via the video format, you have a beautiful, calming voice and reassuring manner. While this has, no doubt, been a key to your success as a photography teacher in the past, it is essential on a video based learning platform.
I really got so much out of both your Lightroom courses! I love your online classes and really glad you're continuing them.
