Online Class: Editing and Putting Together a Portfolio in Street Photography
+ An Introduction to Street Photography: from Beginner to Advanced Topics Bundle
Learn How to Craft Your Vision
Shooting is only half the battle in street photography.
What do you then do with those thousands of random spur-of-the-moment photographs?
How do you find and organize the best photographs, make them look as good as possible, and then turn them into a strong portfolio or into cohesive projects?
We all take a ton of bad street photographs. It’s the best photographers who can weed out the strongest work, organize it correctly, and figure out how to grow a vision while presenting it in an effective manner.
From Beginning to End in the Editing Process (using Lightroom)
This video class shows you my entire editing process from beginning to end. Every detail that I use to organize, edit, export, create book mockups, and print is covered.
I take you through my projects and talk about how I grew them and sequenced them. We’ll talk about editing philosophies, including imperfection, consistency and style, and building your own projects and portfolios. We’ll also look at many examples of how I edit a variety of photographs and evaluate the work of five photographers with completely different styles.
This class uses Lightroom Classic, and it will give you a full knowledge of how to use the program from start to finish. While I don’t cover every single random aspect of Lightroom, I focus on what you need to know about the program and what I use, which will make it much easier to learn the program without much difficulty.
And even if you use an editing program other than Lightroom or Lightroom CC, the class will translate and still help you improve your editing.

About James: James has lived in New York for his entire life (besides a 5 year stint in Madison, Wisconsin, but he doesn’t want to talk about that.)
