Edu Gomez, fashion and beauty photographer, will teach you to reveal your RAW files with Lightroom to get the most out of your images making adjustments or presets directly on the "digital negative".

RAW photography allows corrections that previously required access to the development laboratory. To do this, you will learn to use Adobe Lightroom from scratch, a software that works with the camera's native sensor file and contains much more information than a jpg file.

You will begin by getting to know the work and influences of Edu Gómez, photographer and founder of Hangover magazine.

Next, you will discover what a RAW file is and what it is for.

Edu will teach you how to use the Lightroom interface from scratch by going through software configuration, libraries (visualization, filtering and tagging, renaming and moving images, collections, metadata, keywords and face detection), file management and the catalogs.

Once you know how to move in Lightroom, you will learn how to use basic development functions such as camera calibration, cropping tools, curves, black and white work, adding effects, etc. and you'll know how to apply presets or presets to a batch of photos to streamline work.

Next, Edu will show you how to export your final images in Lightroom for printing, for web or to be projected and always get the best results.

Finally, you will know other similar software such as Camera Raw and Bridge or Capture One and the workflow that Edu Gómez uses in his personal works.
