This is a very informal video on how to use lightroom. All future videos will be posted in the group, so if you have any special requests you'd like to see just let me know.

I'd love to give you some pointers on how you can do the same. Remember, post processing doesn't have to take forever, and when you're working on editing, consistency is key.
