What People Are Saying About Marie's Lightroom Develop Courses

"I just completed the videos on Masks in LR; your instruction was uncomplicated and easy to follow, so my notes are well organized and clear. I've been dabbling with masks but your presentation included tools and effects I hadn't learned yet. So great course!" Stephanie B.

“I found the course easy to follow and really liked Marie's style. I learned a great deal and have added many new techniques to my toolkit. I will be using what I learned every day!” Susan G.

"I have almost completed your Lightroom Develop module and I can honestly say that after struggling with Lightroom for several years I am more excited than ever before to start working on some of my images. Your course is the best Lightroom Develop course I have encountered to date - hands down." Aleen G.

"I'm finding this method of learning very productive, giving me time to watch the videos a couple times then execute the task." Marjorie O.

"I just want to thank you for a fabulous online class! Your teaching style is superb!! Clear, organized and informative, you allow the participant to understand each step and made me feel comfortable with doing a totally new task... It’s a great curriculum and extremely useful. I learned a lot!" Barbara K.

"I wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying the LR Develop class. I have been using the modules and going back and playing and reviewing and each time picking up something different. I’ve gone back and redone a lot of the earlier work I had done and everything is better." Joe B. "I want to say how much I am enjoying your lessons!!!! OMG! You are so clear and precise and the videos are amazing help! I feel so glad to have found you!" Mariana J.
