Raw Class Testimonials

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!

I was increasingly frustrated with my lack of knowledge with what do I do first when editing. Do I adjust exposure, blacks, midtones, WB….what first, what second? It was ALL covered in the raw course! I had a HUGE lightbulb moment when I discovered how important a few key steps were that I was missing altogether in my workflow. Thanks to Damien I’m on the road to cleaner processing and quicker processing!

Mel, Ontario

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!

I finished your RAW Class and have learned so much. Taking RAW images was new to me and therefore editing them was new for me. I thought I could figure it all out on my own but struggled. I invested into the class and learned so much. However, today is when I realized that I learned more than I thought I had learned. I had completely under-exposed a picture by pure accident and after about 2-3 clicks of that picture, I realized it and adjusted my settings on my camera. However, that under-exposed picture was by far the best one out of that series. I figured I would try to do the things I learned from class to save the picture.I was soooo happy that I was able to. The client LOVES the image and I did show them the before/after and they were amazed. I would have never have been able to do this prior to the class. I still have sooo much more to learn and frequently go back to the material. Damien you rock.

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.

Patrice, Pennsylvania

The raw class is by far the most valuable resource I have found for photographers! He explains things in a way that is very easy to understand and provides videos as examples. I love the fact that I will have access to the modules for a year for future reference. I can already see a huge difference in the way I ‘see’ my photos and I am able to put my new knowledge into action. Thank you Damien!

Lysianne, Oklahoma

Thanks to Damien’s RAW class, my processing takes HALF the time it used to.It really is so easy to follow along with him – he has a great way of explaining things that makes it easy to understand!

Christina, Michigan

Just finished taking Damien’s Raw Class. His way of teaching is informative and down to earth! I can now say that I no longer just play with the sliders, I actually know which ones to move and why! Thank you for a wonderful class! Worth every penny and more!

Jackie, Louisiana

What you taught me in ACR via the RAW class has come close to changing my life! What a difference that has made to my workflow already!

Amanda, Ohio

I would recommend the Raw class. It’s really easy, and it is definitely powerful. It’s basic editing BUT it lays down a really good foundation for your photos.

Alisa, Minnesota

I absolutely loved your layers and masks class. I love the way it was laid out, so easy to follow.

Emma, Brisbane

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.

Joan

The RAW class was so informative and eye opening and made things I’d been trying to learn just click (i.e. correct white balance and histograms). The training is presented in ‘bite-sized’ slides which make it easy to absorb the information before moving onto the next tidbit.I would recommend this class to anyone and have already started. Damien, Thank you so much for this incredible training!!

Crystal, Hawaii

Damien not only made it enjoyable to take his raw class, but he wrote it in a very understandable way. When I had questions, I posted them, and he was quick (MAN, was he quick!) on responding to each one of them. I could also read through others’ questions and answers, which helped me, too.I really recommend taking this course if you struggle with ACR, or just need a deeper understanding of it. It really is a great, efficient tool to accomplish a good clean edit quickly and simply.

Sandy, Michigan

Everyone new to photography post processing should start with the raw class first! I was getting so discouraged trying to figure out how to edit and process my photos and your class was exactly what I needed!

Kristin, Georgia

I recently completed Damien’s Raw class, and it is AMAZING! I truly feel it has been the best investment in my photography journey! I actually “get” what I am doing in editing now, and can do so quite quickly…no more playing with sliders and guessing what happens next – now it’s done purposely and with an expected result. Thank you Damien for showing me the light 😉

Tara, Montana

Thanks damien!!! I THOUGHT I knew how to edit in raw before this, but I was so wrong. I was doing everything by eye and not paying any attention to the histogram. Now I will never edit without taking it into consideration.

Meagan, Arkansas

Damien’s Raw Class is amazing! I have shot in raw for a couple of years and played around with ACR and Lightroom but really had no idea of the benefits.I would recommend this class to anyone and everyone! Everything is so clearly explained and easy to understand. I have invested in other courses before and this one by far was the best money I have spent with regards to PS editing.Thank you, thank If anyone is on the fence about whether or not to take Damien’s RAW class, jump in and DO IT! I have taken numerous online classes over the past few years, but this class is truly the best, easiest to understand, get-excellent-editing-results-quick class I’ve taken to date. Totally worth the money – you will immediately see improvement in your RAW editing.

Amanda, Alberta

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!

Jeannie, Alabama

Damien’s RAW class is fantastic! I was hesitant to take it since I’m not brand new to editing. I learned a lot of great information and saw an immediate improvement in my work. The class is easy to follow and great for the beginner and intermediate level! (Can’t say anything for advanced since I don’t consider myself to be there yet.)

Timorah, Virginia

Damien’s RAW class taught me more valuable information than the dozens of other online photoshop or lightroom classes have ever taught me. His simple instruction notes finally helped me quit guessing what I was doing and instead made me confident that I KNEW what I was doing. I can now process in RAW in a quarter of the time that I used to. And rather than fiddling with every button until it looks right, I now follow a simple set of steps that gets me to my desired results… CONSISTENTLY! I cannot thank you enough for the simple and straightforward instruction. You have saved me hours of editing!

Lauren

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!

Nellie, Virginia

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.

Jami, Ohio

OH MY GOODNESS just doesn’t seem to cover it all. I’ve been doing photography for over 30 years, I taken classes all over the world and NO ONE has ever made MORE sense or explained in such detail as Damien. The raw class was extraordinary and I plan to go back and apply ALL that I’ve learned to my past files.

Stephani, Kentucky

Thank you so much Damien… At last a teacher that has taught me to understand and use RAW and Photoshop – Many have tried in the past and failed!

Gill, UK

I’ve taken several online courses over the past year and and I have to say, Damien’s raw class is one of the best I’ve taken, especially for the price. Everything is written in plain english, and he actually made it very interesting, like a book you want to read cover to cover!  He explains theory without getting overly technical, then shows you, using pictures, video and illustrations, how to apply that theory to your own images. He covers LR and ACR users. It’s incredibly organized and easy to navigate.

Stephanie, California

I have taken Damien’s RAW class and was pleasantly surprised. There were many eye-opening moments. Before this class, I thought I had a basic understanding of RAW processing. Now, I have a more comprehensive knowledge. Damien teaches you why it is necessary to understand the concepts before you edit a photo in RAW. Then he shows you how RAW editing can enhance your workflow and lead you to an amazing final image (Foundation Photoshop Skills class). I enjoyed perusing the slides as well as the videos because they forced me to really see the importance of starting out clean. I highly recommend taking this course. If you want to learn from an expert, look no further. Damien is it!

Jennifer, Germany

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.

Holly, Texas

I just finished your Raw Class and may I say, ‘Oh My Goodness! Thank You!’ I have been living in Lightroom for over 2 years and now I actually understand what the heck I am doing. The thing that was impressed on me the most from your class was that in all things there is ORDER! I was doing everything in the wrong order! Thank you for making everything so clear!

Stacie

Damien’s tutorials rock! I have several books on Lightroom and Photoshop, but after taking Damien’s raw class everything is so clear and better explained than in any of those books. Taking the RAW class gave me the confidence in my workflow that I needed and now I KNOW I am taking all the right steps to create my own style of processing. Thanks Damien!
