The Colour of Emotion

Explore the Spectrum of Lightroom

with April Milani

Workshop begins October 5th, 2020

Do you long to take your editing to the next level? But creating with colour is where you’re stuck? Maybe your black and white images come out flat and lack contrast. Do you find yourself in Lightroom and have no clue how to add emotion with your sliders?

I’ve been there! I know how frustrating this can be, let me help you. I will teach you about my years of studying colour. Each lesson of colour will be explained through videos in Lightroom. We will spend four full weeks exploring colour and how it’s connected to emotion. Learn to create black and white images through the study of colour. And so much more!
