I run a 'live' online Lightroom and Photoshop course - not just a series of pre-recorded video lessons - and I've always felt it was unfair to expect students to pay for a course without ever having experienced the way a subject is taught by the tutor.
This short series of videos is designed to let you see just that. They are shot in one take, mistakes and all, so you can see exactly what an online lesson would be like.
I hope you enjoy them and as you might expect, a link to the full course details is at the bottom of this page.
