LR 101 - Library Module by Michael Wade

The first step to learning LR is the use of the Library module. This module allows you to import your photos into LR and ultimately access those photos in all the other modules. However, the Library module can be so much more than that. 

Unlike film photography, where you might run out of film after 12 exposures, digital photographers have the ability to capture hundreds (sometimes thousands) of photographs on one SD or CF card. Pair the ability to take hundreds of photographs and someone that is in the beginning stages of learning photography and you can quickly have an unorganized mess on your hands. This is where the Library module can help you. 

In the video below, I will take you through my Library module workflow and show you how I keep my photographs organized using LR.

LR 101 by Michael Wade

Thanks guys for the kick in the pants to put some content out there they may or may not be easily available. 

Lightroom (LR) 101 will be an easy to follow long series of tutorial videos that explains how I use LR (the keywords in that sentence are HOW I). I will start out with the basics and we will move to editing later in the series. My goal is to release a video a week and hopefully increase your productivity in Lightroom. 

Thanks for being here and look for my first video later this week!
