MyPhotoSchool – Lightroom for Photographers – Week 1


Week One: Import and Organise

I’ve finished week one and so far I’m finding it really useful – always a good thing when you’ve invested in a course!

The course is really quite simple to use and get started with, just log in, click on the lesson and then watch the video lesson from the tutor, George Cairns.

Along the side of the screen there are different tabs taking you to one of five sections:

MyPhotoSchool – Lightroom for Photographers


I was recently asked if I would like to complete one of three courses with MyPhotoSchool and of course I jumped at the chance.

Just as Alexa and I were dropping him off he then also decided to drop the bombshell on me that they had all painted pictures of their mummies …cue me starting to have a slight panic due to the small fact that my son has never once bothered to try and draw/paint people. Keep reading…
