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!
