      Re: Courses by Yours Truly

      I am getting closer to running these courses!

      I am now looking at dates starting around the end of July - for Olympus camera user training and Lightroom training.

      If you would be interested in either of these subjects could you email me at admin (at) e-group.uk.net please? These courses would be held at our office in Hemel Hempstead (Apsley to me more precise).

      It's quite a step to plan and execute courses like these and I want to ensure they are 100% right!

          Depending on dates I'd like to go for the Lightroom one. I could claim it was a Birthday present.

                Thanks for your interest

                I have replied to all the emails I have received and to answer a question that came up, our office is just across the road from Apsley train station and London Midland trains take 30 minutes from Euston or you can come the other way from the Midlands.

                You can even stay here as we have a Holiday Inn Express next door to us

                  You can blame me, but I did say it was a thread revival, and clearly for something that many think could be valuable..!

                  Seems that anything worth waiting for from Olympus takes time to reach the public - maybe Ian can bring along a few of the long awaited zooms to the courses

                    Re: Courses by Yours Truly

                    I am getting a fair amount of interest for both Lightroom and Olympus courses but I am also wondering if folks think it's a combined course - which is not the case. The plan is for two separate courses and will likely be mid-morning to mid-afternoon in length, including a break for lunch.

                            Re: Courses by Yours Truly

                            Here is a brief summary of the aims of the courses I'm developing:

                            Get to Know Your Olympus System Camera - covers Four Thirds, Pen and OM-D as well as how Olympus fits in Micro Four Thirds with Panasonic and others.

                            This course is aimed at anyone who feels they aren't getting the most of their camera or are new to the system and are looking for a fast-track to familiarising themselves with their gear and the system.

                            Lightroom - Getting Over the Learning Curve - Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and similar solutions have revolutionised the way photographs work with their images but if you are only used to the traditional way of editing images separately in Photoshop or similar, Lightroom-style software can be counter-intuitive and intimidating.

                            The primary aim of this course is to get users over the considerable learning curve that Lightroom-style software presents new users. It's a challenge worth meeting and not as hard as you'd think given the right assistance and insight. I can guarantee that mastering the basics will make you wonder why you hadn't switched sooner.

                            These courses will be run on a professional and commercial basis, so we will be charging a fee but I hope that you will find them good value. Olympus does have discount voucher system that I believe we can be part of so adding even better value - more on that later.

                            Comments and questions are very welcome!

                              The emphasis will be on Pens and OM-Ds but much of the information to be covered is common to both and I am quite happy to devote some time to specific Four Thirds DSLR issues as required.

                                I have never used Lightroom - I currently use ACDSee pro5 and have used their software ever since my first attempt at photoshop about 15 years ago left me depressed and confused..
                                Is Lightroom very different/worth the change - anyone know ?

                                Certainly a day spent learning more about my EM1 would be great, and the Lightroom course might well be worth attending as well - I guess I ought to download a trial at some stage..
