Lara Joy Brynildssen will be teaching her Lightroom Collections workshop. We’ll work through the “technical how-to” parts of Lightroom pretty quickly and then really start to dive into which images are our best ones and how to use Lightroom Collections to create shareable portfolios.

What to Bring:
  • A laptop with Lightroom CC installed.
    • Make sure your Lightroom Catalog is also on this laptop.
    • If you primarily work from a desktop, create a Lightroom catalog on your laptop too.
  • A hard drive with images (if you don’t store images on your laptop)
    • Make sure these images are in the Lightroom Catalog on your laptop.
  • Smartphone and/or tablet with the Lightroom Mobile app installed.
    • Make sure you know your Adobe CC Login and Password.
    • Double check that you can log into your Adobe CC account on the LR Mobile app after you’ve installed it

Since September’s theme is Cell Phone Portraits Lara Joy will also show us how to use Lightroom mobile with the images we take this evening.

Cost includes appetizers during the evening.
Drinks can be purchased on your own.

Total Cost is $48.47 ($3.47 Eventbrite ticket fee)

Where:   Millennium Park – 201 Randolph St. Chicago Il 60601

What:     August’s theme is Dance and there just so happens to be a full day of Dance at Millennium Park this day. I’m leaving the times open – I’m not sure what time I can get downtown this day but you’re all welcome to go and maybe we can save a ‘hang-out’ spot somewhere in the grass at Pritzger Pavilion.

I’ll fill in more details if needed.

Welcome to My New Online Photography Home!

I’m very excited to announce a new place for all things Lauri Novak Photography. It’s new, fresh and I hope fun. Come on in, take a look around and let me know what you think.


While you’re exploring take a minute to fill out the Stay In Touch section at the bottom of the home page. Why would you want to do that? Well, first of all I promise I won’t bombard you with emails but you will occasionally be notified of any specials, print sales, discount codes and giveaways.

Also, if you’re interested in being kept up to date on the monthly Drink & Click events in the Chicago area, future photowalks and workshops check out the events page and sign up to be notified there.


I will be giving away 3 metal prints of various sizes. When you sign up you will be entered to win one of the following:

1st)  a 16×24 metal print of Winter Bridge: http://bit.ly/2seEJGB (a $250 value)
2nd) an 11×14 metal print of Man vs. City:  http://bit.ly/2sBdapo (a $125 value)
3rd) an 11×14 metal print of Crown Fountain Stream: http://bit.ly/2ueoEBd (a $125 value)
Don’t worry, if you are a current subscriber you’ll be entered to win as well.


I started out on this journey to update my online presence on my own, figuring I would learn something and save myself some money in the process. In the end, time is money as they say and it became too overwhelming for me so I sought out someone to help me. I really want to thank Cow & Rooster Design for taking this over, for making my online home very “me” and making the process so easy for me. Finding the right person to do these types of things isn’t always easy, I’m lucky that I know people and have actually met Elizabeth in person a couple of times. This made it easier, she knows me, knows my photographic style and personality, I’m hoping that made this process easier for her as well.

If you come across anything that doesn’t seem quite right or doesn’t work properly please let me know. It’s always a work in progress with these changes and those of us working on them don’t always SEE everything!


In honor of my new home I’m offering 50% off any orders. Prices are already discounted, no coupon code needed.

So, stay tuned. I have a lot of catching up to do with editing images and telling the stories that I started out 2017 wanting to tell.Time for me to get to work.

With Appreciation,




Keep in Touch!
