Class details
Class 1: Basics of Lightroom
After you take your digital pictures, now what? Almost all digital photographs need more “processing” to get the most out of the image. In this three-hour Introductory class on Friday evening, Carlyn Iverson will introduce you to Lightroom.  Lightroom is a photo editing and management software program. Developed by Adobe, this program is designed to help you manage large quantities of images, and edit them as well. Lightroom can make your images look much better easily and efficiently. 
Please bring your own laptop and images you would like to edit as part of this class.  You will not be taking any photos during class time.  If you do not have Lightroom on your computer, you can download a free trial at:

Class 2: Raptor Photography Workshop
The Raptor Center has its popular Fall Raptor Release at Carpenter St. Croix Valley Nature Center in Hastings, MN on Saturday, September 27, from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm.  This class will meet at Carpenter from 8:00 am - 10:00 am for special access to the education raptors to photograph them in natural habitats.  Carlyn Iverson will guide you on angles, light and working around live animal subjects.  After class you may stay the day to photograph all the education raptors displayed.  At 11:30 am and 2:00 pm you have a chance to photograph birds being released back to the wild from The Raptor Center's world renowned raptor rehabilitation clinic.
Please bring your own equipment, and breakfast and/or lunch.  Please dress for the weather.
