  • “Noble never disappoints. I registered for this class because I wasn't sure I was using Adobe Lightroom properly. Dan helped me see that I was doing well - to a point. There is so much more to the software than I even imagined. Not only was I able to adapt my workflow immediately after class, I can now handle basic retouching without having to switch to Photoshop.”
