Raw Class Testimonials
Photographers – for anyone looking to take their editing to the next level, or even for newbies who aren’t exactly sure how sliders work, or how to read a histogram, or why to shoot in RAW… go take Damien’s classes. Heck, even if you’re an advanced user, TAKE HIS CLASSES. You will learn something, I promise!!!
Yay! I just finished Damien’s Raw Class and it has been sooo helpful. I thought I had a good grasp before but now I know I was just adjusting things left right and centre with no underlying knowledge or consistency. This is going to speed up my workflow considerably!
It’s crazy that I have read so many blogs and articles about how to’s in ACR and WOW.. you are by far the best $ I have spent. I love that you speak to us as if we are right in front of you. The videos get to the point. Examples are perfect. Simple & 125% helpful. Recommend to anyone.
Best value for money photography purchase I have ever made…wish Damien’s workshops were around years ago when I first started learning to shoot in manual and process RAW files. I was fumbling around in the dark when it came to editing, really! Can’t wait to put the clean processing workflow into practice, and I’ll be signing up for all of the other classes too 🙂 Thankyou for sharing your knowledge so generously Damien.
The RAW course was exactly what I was looking to find. It is comprehensive, yet concise. Your method of work flow, consistent explanations of WHY to do something, and then how to follow through were easy to follow. The video clips augment the slides perfectly, and the lightly sprinkled humor made it enjoyable as well. Thank you!
Love love love, Damien’s Raw class. His examples and videos are amazing. He is able to take what seems so complicated and explain it in a matter that a light bulb goes off. His teaching method is remarkable.
Taking this class has made everything much more clear and understandable. Things are starting to make complete sense now. Thank you Damien.
Wow! I just finished the RAW class and I am blown away by the amount of knowledge I have just consumed. Yes, photography and photo editing is an art – but there is a basic science in how they should be approached; it doesn’t have to be like shooting in the dark! This course is great!!! Without question, the quality and the amount of information was well worth the price of admission.And I loved the format. It’s awesome that you can go at your own pace, refer back or review as needed, have the benefit of previous participants’ questions and Damien’s answers to them – and that you can ask your own questions as they arise. I also love that there are links to additional information (blog posts, videos,etc). I can’t wait to put what I’ve learned into practice.
After reading through the RAW class a few times now and following the workflow, I feel like I am no longer sinking. This class is amazing! I am super excited to continue this journey and finally gain some confidence in the work I am doing. Thank you!
Damien’s teaching style is extremely easy to follow. He explains things in everyday terms and uses examples that are easy to relate to. In addition, he is lightning-fast about replying to questions!
I am self taught and many times I feel like I am missing pieces to my puzzle and guess at things rather than know. I just felt like I got all my puzzle pieces I had lost or never had in the first place, thanks to the raw class. It was very simple and easy to understand.
I finished Damien’s Raw class yesterday night, and I highly recommend it! My biggest â€œAhaâ€ moment was: Finally understanding what to do with recovery and fill light in ACR (I never used them… now I know I will, and I know when and why!)
The RAW class is so amazing! Damien really helped me understand exactly what I’m doing to a RAW file in ACR. I can now quickly process an image and get consistent, amazing results. Thank you Damien! 5 STARS!
Holy smokes, the raw class has rocked my world!!
I just completed the raw class tonight and it has totally changed (not to mention shorten) the way I edit. His teaching is so easy to follow and so precise you will be blown away.
I’m a newbie and have never worked in Lightroom. Damien’s RAW class is well written and very easy to understand. I now have a clean edit workflow that I understand and love. Thanks Damien!
I have been shooting RAW for about a year now and never really knew what I was doing in ACR or Lightroom. I just messed around with the sliders till I thought it looked good but never realizing what each one did. Yikes! After taking Damien’s class, I will never do that again. I don’t have to. He is so good at explaining each step and why you should do them in a certain order. He explains what you are doing to your image every step of the way with great examples.
Thanks so much again Damien. You are endlessly patient, answer all my questions so quickly (no matter how tedious!) and explained things in such a straightforward and gentle way. Am excited to be giving images another go, rather then cringing at the thought of going in circles trying to white balance, sort out colour, noise reduction, etc. You are amazing!
I’ve edited over 200 photos (from a wedding) the last 2 days in probably a quarter of the time it used to take me. It feels good to know exactly what the sliders do, what I need to accomplish in RAW, and edit with purpose instead of playing around until I get it right.
I recently completed Damien’s RAW class and it was an exceptional learning experience. I had pretty well given up on RAW as it just wasn’t working for me. Now I’m ready to tackle it again. The content is thorough, well organized and easy to understand. Damien is responsive to questions and comments; he makes the course available for a year for plenty of opportunity to review and ask questions as you practice what you’ve learned.
Awesome! Thank you so much for providing this class!! So much of what I was doing in raw was a complete guessing game for me ~ I’m glad I have the background of what I’m doing, when I’m doing it!!
Wow! I was a bit hesitant about signing up for the RAW class as Iâ€™d used Photoshop and Lightroom for a number of years so thought I knew it all. How wrong I was. Yes I knew what the sliders were, but not how to use them.. to really use them. The course has been a revelation â€“ all the things I got frustrated with (like how to correct white balance properly), and searched the internet for answers to, are here. Highly recommended and worth every penny!
I have known for a while that I needed to fill in some blanks with my editing skills. After looking at numerous options and hearing again and again about the unparallelled benefits of Damien’s classes, I opted for the Aussie. This raw class is incredibly well constructed and sort of a shockingly good deal for the money. It’s impressively readable for starters; instructions are clear and well illustrated. If that was not enough, Damien’s promptly supplied answers serve to benefit other users in their own problem solving. Finally, the content is just remarkably helpful. All of those mysterious sliders have now been made meaningful. I think my white balance woes just might be over. After taking the raw course, I have an actual system in place, one that gives me some confidence.
The raw class was GREAT! I wasn’t sure if I needed it or not. I felt I had a pretty good understanding of ACR and Raw files. I knew if I moved certain sliders around I would get the desired effect, but now I actually KNOW what I’m doing when I’m moving them, I’m not just doing it willy nilly. Thanks so much!
When Damien said I needed to that I take the Raw Class before the Levels Class, I wasn’t too pleased because I thought I already had a handle on ACR. Was I ever wrong. This class touched on the basics in detail that I should have known and didn’t. I really appreciated the way that it was presented both in text form to explain theories, then in video to show examples. Then the icing on the cake was the Raw Processing Workflow flowchart. With this chart I don’t have to try to remember what I learned, it is now right at my fingertips next to my computer as I edit a photo. Thanks so much Damien.
I have reviewed your Raw Class twice now and I can’t believe how much I’ve learned. The first time I was so ecstatic when I finished. Too sad it was over. I went for round two and learned even more. The only bad thing I have to say is that it finished. I want more. Can’t wait for more courses to come. I will sign up for anything that is offered by you. You are such a great teacher. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.
Damien, I LOVED the raw class and continue to use your steps with every single photo. I wouldn’t be where I am in my post processing had it not been for you offering this. I will be forever grateful. Many, many thanks!!
What you taught me in ACR via the RAW classÂ has come close to changing my life! What a difference that has made to my workflow already!
Damien, your RAW class is in the top three best investments I’ve made into my photography journey… and it was the least expensive. Thank you.
Wow. It took me almost a year to immerse myself in the class because I was truly afraid of shooting RAW. I really didn’t know where to start with workflow. I have been using ACR for a bit to edit JPEGs, but the straight-forward knowledge of how, when, and why to use each slider and also learning how to truly read a histogram is priceless. I also had no idea that the Noise/Sharpening tab was there! I’m off to set my camera to RAW and jump in!
