Welcome

(music playing) Welcome to getting started with Adobe Camera Raw. My name is Mikkle Aaland, and I'm going to be your host and guide in this video training workshop. I've been a professional photographer for over 30 years and I've written over ten books on digital photography. I also teach workshops and I've learned how important it is to present complex information in a simple straight forward manner. There's no question that Camera Raw is a professional tool and requires skill to operate.

In these videos, I'll show you everything you need to know about Camera Raw. I'll introduce the Camera Raw Interface. Explain how to use all the Camera Raw tools, such as the Graduated Filter, the Adjustment Brush, and the Targeted Adjustment tool. I'll show you how to customize to Camera Raw default. And of course, very importantly, I'll show you how to use Camera Raw's extensive Tone Mapping controls to make an image look the way you want it to. Feel free to use the project files and practice everything you're learning. Just remember, these files are only licensed for your personal uses only. For other usages, please contact me directly.

By the end of this video workshop, you'll have a solid working knowledge of how to use Camera Raw. Let's get started.
