"I've been working with Lightroom for years, and I've taken classes from other instructors, yet I felt I still didn't understand how to correctly use different features in Lightroom. Zack Smith Photography, explained things to me in a simple easy to follow way.  I never worked with the presets before and didn't understand the importance of them before this class.  I recommend this class not only for beginners, but people who feel they're not utilizing everything Lightroom has to offer.   Rachel Douglas, New Orleans, LA.

If you are getting serious about your photography THERE IS NO QUESTION YOU NEED TO SHOOT RAW! Let Zack help you make that transition an easy and useful one!

Shooting RAW and creating a digital workflow is easier than you think. Knowing the post process tools that await your soon to be "ready for the wall" images will have you shooting more and more.

MORE PRAISE FOR ZACK SMITH PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS!

"I was so impressed with Zack's innate ability to teach in a style that worked for me. He explained camera functions in analogies that made perfect sense to me. I had several One on One courses with Zack and it has taken my photography to a whole new level! "Carol Bailey, Digital 101 workshop participant
"I was fortunate to have a one on one session with Zack in the early stages of a portrait project I was working on.  His insight and critique was great and much needed to help realize the vision I had in my head.  The points he made were right on track and helped me correct a few key points I needed to work on before it was too late.  It was great to partner with Zack and his professional expertise, I would highly recommend a session." - Eric Nunez
"Zack is both a highly skilled and talented photographer and an excellent teacher. His teaching approach is thoughtful and organized, and his delivery is clear and enthusiastic. I appreciate that he is quick to understand and address my needs as a photography student. Zack is also helpful and encouraging in his comments" Diane Danthony, photographer and recent One on One Photography Training Participant.
"Zack is a great teacher with alot of knowledge and patience to answer anything you might throw at him. I gained knowledge about what it really entails to become a professional photographer. I learned everything from working with clients, setting up a website, even the importance of consistent edits and building your own brand and style" - Brent Asay
