Raw Class Testimonials

I just got finished with Damien’s Raw Class. It was amazing. I *thought* I understood why I was doing certain things in Raw…but now I realize I was very wrong. I feel like I have improved 100% since taking the class! I definitely recommend it to everyone! It was SO easy to understand and Damien explains things like he is talking to a friend instead of acting talking like an ‘instructor’ who knows more than you do. I’m so happy I spent the money!

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!

I’ve finished your RAW class and I don’t have words to describe how much my editing has changed, just 1 big THANK YOU!!!

Nery, Croatia.

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!

Joy, New York

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 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

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.

Kimberly, Tennessee

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!

Lauren, Florida

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!!!

Meagan, Arkansas

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!!

Jeannie, Alabama

The raw class is AMAZING. I’m on the last module and learned so much. I had no no idea how to approach editing and now I do. Thanks Damien for a such clear explanation of such difficult topic.

Irina, New York

I can’t thank you enough for your awesome Raw class. I have been processing Raw files for about 18 months, and thought I knew what I was doing. At the end of your course, I thought I had only learned a little bit – until I processed my first session. WOW you taught me a lot. Suddenly I really understand what the controls in ACR/Lightroom do. I don’t need to muck around to see what works – I can just go right to it and do it. It takes me half the time.FINALLY I have found that x-factor that was missing.

Kim, New Zealand

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.

Natalie, Queensland

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.

Brenda, Texas

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.

Karen, Idaho

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!

Loralie, Canada

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

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

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.

Samantha, Michigan

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.

Phani

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!

Andy, South Wales

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

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

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!

Sarah, Wisconsin

Oh my goodness! I can’t believe how much I have been missing all this time without knowing what to do with RAW files. Blown away with what I have learnt at every step of the class. Highly recommended and I encourage anyone who is hesitating to just do it! The class itself is so well presented and flows perfectly. It must have taken HOURS to put together, well done and thank you Damien!!

Christina, England

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 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!

Amber, North Carolina

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.

Lindy, Queensland

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!

Deanna, Maryland

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!

Janell, Texas
