Raw Class Testimonials
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!
I love this class it has helped me so much! I’ve already received compliments that my photos have improved. I now know the histogram a lot better. I feel more confident with my Raw edit workflow. This class is so worth it and very necessary!
Thank you so much Damien!
Wow! I was a bit hesitant about signing up for the RAW class as Id 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 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 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.
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!
AMAZING!!! The raw class has blown me away. The results are spectacular but the steps are quick & make sense.
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!
After months of mulling over whether or not to take the RAW class, I finally did and I couldn’t sing higher praises for it. I learned more in a few days than I have in a few years of doing it on my own. My workflow has been sped up 10 fold and it’s all because I now understand what I need to do, and how to do it quickly and effectively. Thank you!
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!
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.
I didn’t think I’d need this class, because I’ve been shooting in RAW and “editing” for over six months and felt there probably wasn’t THAT much I would learn. Well, I was wrong. Not only was there no real consistency in my post-processing, but I had no idea what I was really doing when I’d play around with the sliders (it was mostly guesswork, pushing them around, seeing if I like the results, and then playing some more).
I also wasn’t aware of how using the most basic tools in LR or ACR can really do most of what is necessary for a “clean edit”. While I am not an editing expert, I at least am now confidently capable of producing consistent results with my images, and knowing what I should be doing with images through my RAW software to obtain a simple, clean edit, ready for anything creative I’d like to add in PS (if anything at all).
Thank you Damien! Definitely worth every penny!
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.
Damiens know-how made my editing process TREMENDOUSLY quicker, and my end product RIDICULOUSLY better. My only complaint is that I spent too much money on actions before taking his raw class. If you rely on actions, stop. Take his class instead.
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.
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!
The RAW class is fantastic! I finally understand how to successfully and quickly process a RAW file. A lot goes into getting a great shot in camera, but Damien has made it so easy for me to enhance the RAW photo to create a beautiful piece of art.If you are at all hesitant to take this class, let me say that you will NOT be disappointed and you will come away with a TON of knowledge that will really help you get a great edit every time. AND…you have access to it for a WHOLE year!I don’t want my photos to look like someone else’s, I want to put my own artistic touch and vision in my photos. Damien encourages you and gives you the skills to be able to accomplish that. 5 STARS all the way!!
Love. This. Class. Damien’s easy to understand explanations and examples made understanding how to clean edit so simple! By the time I was done with the class, I was in awe at how easy it was to obtain great white balance, exposure, and contrast! I never realized how often I was undoing what I had done simply because I didn’t understand the foundations of clean editing in RAW. Thank you, Damien, for opening up a whole new world in editing for me!
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!
I just have to say – I finally wrapped up one of my before the RAW classorders and I feel the need to go back and re-edit EVERY IMAGE! Taking that class really, genuinely brought me to the next level. I knew most of the content, but you brought it together in a way that made the pieces work together. THANK YOU!!! TOTALLY worth it! and it doesn’t even take vast amounts of time to get through.
I finished Damien’s Raw Class and I have to say that I big-fat-puffy-heart him and his class. His teaching style is beyond awesome.
Damien, your raw class was by far THE BEST money I have spent since beginning my little photography business! The steps were so clear and easy to follow, and the videos were extremely helpful as well. I just wish I would have found you and started shooting RAW a long time ago!
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!
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.
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!
The Raw class is most amazing! In just a short amount of time, my image went from ehhh! to yeah! So worth the money! My editing time will be cut drastically by using what I learned in Damien’s class.Thanks, Damien for sharing your knowledge.
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’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.
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!
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 🙂
Have just completed the Clean Processing in RAW class and have new confidence in processing images. Damien’s communication style makes the complex aspects all so clear. It’s fantastic and so worthwhile. Thanks Damien.
