Smartphone Photography with Adobe Lightroom CC for Mobile

Donner Sunrise.jpg


In this workshop, we will move beyond what was covered in the "Intro to Smartphone Photography" workshop and dive into making and editing more complicated photographs with the Adobe Lightroom CC App for Mobile. We will use Lightroom Mobile CC App to shoot in DNG (RAW), make HDR images, adjust focus/white balance, ISO, and shutter speed manually, do creative portraits, and then learn how to do editing in Lightroom CC on our phones (which must be purchased and installed for this workshop; Lightroom requires a free Adobe Account).


We will go outside (weather permitting) to shoot images as well as what we can capture in the shop. We will make use of clip-on camera lens attachments to expand the optics of our phones. We will also use phone tripods and shoot multiple panoramas. Please bring these items with you, or plan to purchase one at Atelier. We will do black and white conversions, and Grant will introduce other advanced editing techniques such as selective editing (available with a paid subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud or for $4.99).




  • iPhone or Android Phone with lots of room for new photos

  • Fully charged battery, charger cable and brick

  • Participants MUST come to the class with Adobe Lightroom Mobile CC installed.



This class has a minimum sign-up of five (5) participants to run. In the event the class is cancelled, all participants will be notified 24 hours in advance. Please read our cancellation policy.


Different types of phones offer different features, and as such Grant will do the best he can to demonstrate features and techniques available for all participants based on their model and type of phone but can’t guarantee that everyone will have access to the same features.
