What should I bring to class? Bring your camera, lenses, flashes and any other gear you may have questions about. Plan to start learning your camera and changing modes in even the most basic classes.
Do I bring my laptop for editing and organizing classes? No. Photoshop, Lightroom and organizing classes are live demonstrations of Michael Lamb editing his own images. You may bring a laptop of course if you want to follow along. Attendants will be given a handout of "recipes" of all the tricks taught in the class.
What software do I need for editing classes? We teach Adobe Photoshop Elements and Lightroom for photo editing. Both programs are available at Adobe's site for a free 30 day trial. Photoshop & Premiere Elements can be purchased, online or locally, for $150 or less, together, or Photoshop Elements for $100 or less. Lightroom sells for about $150, and is also available for a small monthly fee through Adobes cloud services. Google's Picasa is available free and Apple's iPhoto is preinstalled on Macs. There are also discounts available for Adobe programs for students and educators.
Do you do one-on-one classes? Yes. We may suggest seeing Spartan Photo Center for one-on-one classes or Michael Lamb is available for one-on-one teaching at Spartan Photo Center for $75 per hour. One-on-one classes are usually one hour long, rather than two hour group classes. On-location one-on-one classes are available for $125 per hour.
Are you available for small group classes outside of your regular schedule? Yes. Michael Lamb teaches across SC upon request. Rates vary according to class content, location and size of group.
