Developing and Organizing your Photos Using Adobe Lightroom 

With Ellen Garvey - August 3 at 6:30 pm

You have lots of photos, right? This workshop will help you learn to “develop” them so they look their best, and will show you how to manage and organize them using Lightroom.

Whether you shoot personal photos, travel photos, or create art, you can benefit from this workshop. No prior experience with Lightroom is necessary.

Ellen Garvey is a scuba diver, and shoots most of her photos under water, which has its own special world of photographic challenges. She has been using Adobe Lightroom for several years, and has given workshops on the topic at underwater photography clubs.

Open to SalemArts Members and Non-members. Registration fee of $5.00 required - Register Today!!!


Photography Exhibition

Salem Arts Association is pleased to announce a special exhibition featuring Salem Arts members’ Photos of the world.

What’s your “World View”? Salem celebrates a long and rich maritime history of exploring the world and returning with stories far and wide. Salem Arts Association invites all members to submit your photographs of the world.  Where have you been? What have you seen? This is an opportunity to share your images of the world outside this region we call home. This special exhibition will showcase a collection of photographs made by our membership and like the explorers of Salem’s past will bring home our visual stories from far and wide.

This is an open call for art to all Salem Arts members.

It’s Free! There are no submission fees for members.
