    Good PP class in Southern California

    I was a very active photographer from the late 1970s, when I had my own darkroom, up until the late 1980s when I gave up the hobby. Recently I have gotten back into it and currently own an M8.2 with a Monochrom to follow soon.

    Where I have really been left behind is on the computer end. Does anyone of a good day or weekend class in or near Southern California focusing on Lightroom, setting up digital asset management and efficient post-processing from RAW/DNG?

    Since I work with a computer all day, every day (I'm an attorney), I'd to learn how to develop a fast and efficient workflow so that I can manage, process and then either print or export my images as quickly as possible with better than out-of-camera quality.

    If no formal classes, is anyone in the Southern California area interested in giving a private lesson?

    Here are a couple of choices:

    Charles Cramer is near Yosemite and teaches around California and at his home:

    Workshops with Charles Cramer

    Miami but one day and probably worth the trip:

    overgaard.dk - Thorsten Overgaard Photo Seminar in Miami, Florida

    Thorsten notes in his listing above:

    "Notice that there are seminars in Los Angeles August 25-28 2013 and February 2014 in San Francisco "

    Camera West has a Digital Printing Workshop in October, should cover development of files for printing....

    Hands On Printing Workshop | | Camera West , Walnut Creek & Rancho Mirage, CA


    Some of the best online and downloadable sources:

    George Jardine on Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom and Digital Photography

    KelbyTraining.com | The Leading Provider of Education for Photography and Creative Professionals Worldwide

    LR4-5_Bundle

    Acme Educational DVDs on Fine Art Photography, Photoshop, and Lightroom

    If you haven't tried Capture One for your Leica files you may prefer the rendering to LR.

    Here are some online classes for Capture One:

    Thanks to all who responded. I have some great suggestions for software and classes, and am set up for a private lesson this weekend.

    Once I learn lightroom and the basics, I will definitely explore Capture One as well.
