I am giving a talk tonight at Rhondda CC in south Wales called “Every picture tells a story”.

I was going to go over early with my camera but as the light is very sunny f16 type weather, I will go later as I do not do sunny f16 if I can help it.

I will try to leave enough time for the traffic around Newport – is there ever enough time for the traffic around Newport ?

Lightroom is a great tool for organising and processing your digital pictures, but if it’s new to you then it can appear a little overwhelming.

My new one day Lightroom 5 beginners course – “how to master Lightroom from the ground up” will be just the ticket for you. Aimed at those who are new to Lightroom or just getting to grips with it, this one day course has been designed as a step by step guide by Photographer Andy Beel FRPS. You will learn how to make the most of the power of lightroom without falling in to the pitfalls.

Andy will demonstrate the golden rules and his personal settings when using this software. Lightroom has become his main photo management and workflow tool since the introduction of Lightroom 3.

This course takes place in Bridgend, South Wales.

One place is available on the February 21st 2015 course, book now to avoid disappointment.

Follow the link here now for more details.

My next Lightroom for beginners course located at the The Coach in Bristol is on 10th December 2015.

I am gratified many of my clients appreciate my relaxed hands-on style 0f assisting photographers to learn, grow and flourish, so much so they become friends and naturally keep coming back for more.
