Raw Class Testimonials
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.
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.
I just completed the Clean Processing in RAW and I am so impressed with this class! I learned a ton, and the surprising part was what he taught was so basic, but somehow EXACTLY what I was missing and needed to learn. Damien has a way of teaching that is so easy to understand and follow, provides SEVERAL examples & is over the top accessible & helpful. I HIGHLY recommend taking this class!!
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.
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.
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!
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!
I seriously considered skipping the RAW Class and going to the Layers Class as I have used Bridge/ACR/Photoshop to process my photos for several years and understood ACR but decided if I was going to give Levels a fair chance I needed to do RAW Damien’s way. I can honestly say I have more than got my money’s worth +++. It is one thing to “understand” the sliders, another to know when and how much to use each. Having someone critiquing your images is priceless. I purposely choose difficult images to process in order to benefit the most. Just do it!! You won’t regret it.
Damien’s class was awesome. It was just what I needed to finally make the leap into RAW. As a photographer who had shot only .jpg for the first 3-4 years of my career, I was completely intimidated to begin shooting in RAW because I knew nothing about it. Thankfully, Damien’s knowledge and his class in general propelled me into this wonderful world that I fought for so long and I’m grateful I made the switch. His class was very user friendly, extremely detailed, honest in areas where he wasn’t as knowledgeable and so on. His genuine personality helps you learn and his honest critiques teach you what to do and what not to do. I’ve already recommended the class to several friends. Thanks again Damien. I’m grateful for people like you who “teach” in this industry!
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.
I just finished Damien’s Raw Class last week and it was wonderful. If you’re on the fence, don’t hesitate. It was the best photography money I have spent in a long time.
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!
Your Raw Class has the most informative, clear and concise information about post processing that I’ve ever come across. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us.
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!
If anyone here is still on the fence about taking Damien’s Raw class, DO IT! You won’t regret it! I could not be happier with the changes in my editing progress! A session that used to take me DAYS to edit is now done in a couple of hours, because I have the right framework coming out of ACR. Seriously, this class is LIFE CHANGING!
Your Raw tutorial was awesome! I learned so much more than I ever imagined I could. Thank you so much!
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 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!
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!
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.
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 completely changed the way I edit and the way my images look – thank you!!
I have just taken a 5 nights to go through Damien’s Raw course, for the first time. I have already learnt a lot. The course is easy to follow and Damien comes across as very knowledgeable and helpful. Thank you. Looking forward to practicing and reading through again.
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, 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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
The Raw Class has totally changed the way I view editing my photos. It has really opened up my eyes to the power of raw. Previously I would only briefly use ACR and/or Lightroom and move straight into Photoshop. Now I feel more confident and knowledgeable to process more in raw and leave the more specific editing to Photoshop.
