Welcome to SLR Lounge’s Lightroom Video Training Series. The Lightroom Video Training Series will be a comprehensive guide that will be taking you from learning the most basic of basics, all the way up through learning advanced post production techniques in Lightroom.

This video will quickly introduce you to Pye, who will be teaching this course. Pye is a professional photographer for Lin and Jirsa Photography, a wedding and engagement photography studio based out of Orange County, California.

Pye will be frequently posting new videos in this tutorial series, so be sure to stay tuned! So be sure to thank Pye for his time and willingness to share his knowledge for free with our wonderful SLR Lounge community.

    Will an Aperture user be able to find useful tips through your Lightroom videos? I am just getting started with my recent purchase of Aperture.

      Hey Gina,

      Aperture is quite similar to Lightroom. The techniques that we use can transfer to aperture, though the tools and setting descriptions may not exactly have the same names. There are also a few features that are specific to each. However, after the Lightroom series is completed, we do plan on adding an Aperture series as well.

    Thanks so much!

    Pye, I really appreciate you doing this.  I don’t think you are nearly as big a diva as Justin says you are, by the way.

    Speak more slowly, please! :)

    Would you recommend creating more than one catalog?  Does it make things worker better?

  10. Greggo

    This looks fantastic but I am confused on how to access the videos in order.  Where can I find them?

  11. Pye

    Greggo, the main page at http://www.slrlounge.com has the complete guide.

    Thanks for sharing with us your knowledge in Lightroom. Just bought it and I’m really excited about your video series in order to start with the right foot first.

    Nice and comprehensive tutorials apart from the superb quality of your videos.

    New to Lightroom. Using 28 day trial of Lightroom 4 at the moment, fully intending to buy.

    Following your tutorial on Lightroom 3, finding it really helpful.

    Wondering will there be updates for 4 ??
    Thanks for the tutorials !!!

    Hi Pye,

    I’ve been going through your tutorials, and they are absolutely excellent. Thorough, comprehensive, easy to follow, and very well produced. I was wondering if I could purchase a DVD or something of all your Lightroom 3 tutorials, “Chapters” I to XV, so that I could have them available to refer to whenever I need to. I’m constantly afraid that you’ll take them down before I’ve been able to go through them all!
