  2. this is an amazing insight into how powerful camera rawis, I truly enjoyed Scott's precise yet jargon free teaching methods and consider him one of the finest educators in the industry. if you think you can get more out of your images but feel intimidated by the vastness of photoshop, this course will lead you to a great starting point. A+ from me
