It’s time to develop your editing style!
The Hue of You is a rad four week editing course where you will discover your editing style. Using the Develop Mode and advanced techniques in Lightroom, you will learn how to create the images you truly want to create - not just the photographs you feel expected to take! By the end of the course, you will leave class feeling total ownership of your own unique editing style.
