Processing Raw Images in Lightroom & Adobe Camera Raw

At first, the thought of processing images in Raw format can be both intimidating and overwhelming. You may not understand the difference between the file formats or when you should capture Raw photographs. Maybe you have already taken photographs in Raw, but do not know how to process them. Or you may capture in the Raw format, and process in Raw, but may not know if you are doing it correctly.

If any of these scenarios apply to you, then this workshop is just for you!

    Josuah does a great job at explaining things quickly and thoroughly. Visual demonstrations really help the info to sink in. His workshops are packed with very practical, useful information. The time we are given to try out what we've just learned while he is there for guidance is awesome. Definitely had a couple of "Aha!" moments. Looking forward to seeing what PSG offers next.

    The information was clearly presented, was informative and very useful. Really appreciated the practical insight Joshua provided on which formats to use and how to make the most of the most useful tools.

    Looking forward to this as I am very new to the whole RAW format thing (and taking more intentional photos in general.) I love any sort of image editing, besides.
