Raw Class Testimonials
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!
I just finished the Raw class and I am blown away! Honestly I was nervous to take the class. Reading is not my strong point so I didn’t know what to expect. I LOVE that this class was self paced and there were videos to support the information. I felt it was a extremely accommodating for someone like myself. It was clear and to the point! It is an amazing feeling to have a reason (and the ability to support) what you are doing in raw. Thank you so much Damien!
I am no longer willy nilly, trial and error, and taking hours to process a photo set. I have a clear understanding of what my histogram is telling me, and how to use the information. If I look at the sheer time I am saving, I am completely amazed. If time is money, then I’ve already made my money back on the RAW class! It is sooooo much easier, simpler and straightforward than I was making it.
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.
The Raw class was perfect – just what I needed! PS is intimidating, but Damien makes it easy to understand. Worth every penny!!
AMAZING!!! The raw class has blown me away. The results are spectacular but the steps are quick & make sense.
Damien, you are a Photoshop rockstar! I have learned more from you in a few slides of your course than I ever did reading books on the subject by a world-renown Photoshop expert. The Layers and Masks class explained the concepts in a very easy to understand way. The accompanying videos are stellar too! But the Raw Class….it has changed my editing world. I spend more time with my family and less time on the computer. Thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge.
I am taking your RAW class right now and just felt the need to stop for a moment and tell you how much I love it. I have never felt this in control of my editing. Thank you for making a class that is affordable and absolutely full of the stuff we actually need!
I joined the RAW class because I had no idea where I have to start when I edited the photos. I pretty much guessed and tried different buttons on LR and see whether it worked or not. I definitely see a difference on the workflow in editing and in the result itself. From many minutes to a few minutes.The explanation in the tuts makes the sense why I have to do some processing first then the others. I have less worries now when the sooc pics are not good in terms of lightings and wb. Thank you, Damien 🙂
Damien’s RAW class was awesome! I’ve been using Photoshop for a while now and have numerous books on it. However, I found Damien’s tutorial easy to understand and he explains ‘why’ more than other tutorials I’ve read. I love the variety of teachings (ie theory, video & pictures), it kept my interest and ‘the penny dropped’ on so many occasions. Well done Damien, you truly did a brilliant job.
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!!
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!
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.)
I just completed the Clean Processing in RAW class and am amazed at the difference in my results! If you *thought* you knew how to process in a nice clean way, but wonder why you aren’t as happy with your results as you’d like – if you are missing the WOW factor – take this class. Take it slowly, and really absorb the information. I am going to go back through an old session and edit it all again, and I can’t wait to see the differences!
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.
If you are on the fence, take the raw class. Damien is an awesome instructor who really knows how to teach! He teaches you a workflow which I was seriously lacking. I was finally able to put skills I had already learned (plus a few new ones) into a workflow. Seriously worth every cent!
It’s really awesome and Damien does an excellent job of explaining clearly but simply. Damien is a great teacher!!! The skills I learned seemed so simple, yet I’d never known before what I should have been doing. I will say this: after Damien’s RAW class my pictures are MUCH more consistent & I’m immensely more pleased with my post-processing.
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!
One of the most well written and helpful classes I have taken! Thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge! I feel so much more confident with RAW and feel like this course made my workflow so much smoother and with better end results.
Damien’s raw class was clear and easy to follow, and gave me a plan of action for processing my raw files instead just guessing. It really helped my images look more professional. I can now feel more confident handing my images to clients knowing they are processed correctly! Thank You Damien!
The RAW class completely changed the way I edit and the way my images look – thank you!!
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.
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!
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!
I learned a ton from Damien’s RAW/photoshop class. I was really lacking in having a concrete workflow. I would adjust a slider here or there, but not with a lot of purpose. I have to say that this is probably the best money I spent on learning – by far! No exaggerations! I feel so much more confident knowing what I am doing.
We shouldn’t be allowed to touch Raw before this class…It should be mandatory. Like a car license, only it’s a “raw-license”.
Damien’s RAW class is AMAZING!!! The best money I’ve ever spent in my photography journey. I THOUGHT I knew how to process RAW images, and I was so, so wrong. My before and after is truly incredible and now I barely have to spend any time in Photoshop. Don’t think about it – just take this class!
Damien’s Raw Class is fantastic! If you’ve been wondering why to shoot in raw or want to begin, this class is for you! I finally understand what it truly means and how important it is to keep shooting this way. During his class, I had several “ahaaa” moments — and you know we can’t put a price on those! I have a much better understanding of white balance, exposure, contrast and saturation. My workflow is more streamlined and I can’t wait to put all I learned to work.
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.
Hi, anyone wondering about doing Damien’s Raw Class, I have only one thing to say “DO IT!!” I have just completed the class, AND the support is still there to help me perfect what I have learnt. Damien, great class and very easy to understand and follow 🙂 *Big thumbs up*
