We’re busy getting ready for our next Google Hangout on Lightroom — Wednesday the 25th on the Print Module. Thanks to our partners we have some great prizes to win (like a free pass to Photoshop World!), but you must attend the hangout live to win.

Back in February Levi, Rich, Gerard, and I were super psyched to get to hang out with Bryan O’Neil Hughes from Adobe to discuss and demonstrate various techniques for converting color originals to black and white masterpieces. Bryan is not only an incredible Photoshop and Lightroom resource, but he’s a damn good photographer and an excellent teacher. So put this one to full screen, sit back and enjoy!

We host a different Lightroom hangout once a month on a different topic. Our next Lightroom Hangout is Wednesday June 25th. To help bring it to life we’ve invited a true expert, Kevin Ames. He is a pro photographer,  Photofocus contributor, and Photoshop World speaker.  He’ll help us reveal the secret powers of the Print Module.  You’ll find that it’s really great for much more than making prints. Regular hosts, Rob Sylvan, Gerard Murphy, and Levi Sim will also share their favorite tips.

Click here to RSVP and join the live Hangout.
