John Hallett Photography


Below are some bitesized tutorials that I have written on workflow and post-processing with Lightroom and also a few on flash photography (strobism). More will be added as time allows.

Please be aware that my support of the John Hallett Photography ‘Lightroom Bitesize’ tutorials is to cease at the end of November 2017 and they will no longer be available for download after that time. The reason for this is that all the new features being developed for Lightroom by Adobe are only being put on the ‘Creative Cloud’ version and the stand-alone version that I use is being slowly left behind - meaning that the existing tutorials are slowly becoming out-of-date and I haven’t the capability to access the new features in order to write replacements. I have enjoyed creating them over the years and have had many messages of thanks and support but I have no choice. If you find them useful please download them now before the disappear altogether. Thanks.
