Lightroom: Master Raw Processing

CourseCoverPhotos - Lightroom Develop

Josh Cripps is hands down one of the leading video tutorial instructors I have come across. For many months I have scoured the internet trying to find someone who could teach me basic, intermediate and advanced techniques in Photoshop. I came across Joshua’s YouTube channel and followed him from there. I just bought 3 tutorials and upon completing the very first one I knew he would be my ‘go to’ for anything I want to learn going forward. Well spoken, clear and concise instruction, easy to understand and a great sense of humour. Thanks for all your effort in putting these tutorials together Josh, I look forward to all the ones I don’t yet own!

I have watched all but the Adobe raw video and they are awesome. I love your teaching style! They are are helpful for me, simple to follow, and I needed to brush up on my shortcut skills so the fact that you use them and mention them numerous times helps me to remember them. Your videos are all awesome.

Anna H.

Honestly, this is one of the best videos I’ve seen in a while (and there are a quite a few photographers uploading them these days). Very helpful. Love your enthusiasm. Keep it up!

Philip R.

Love your videos and looking forward to many more.  Great that you can explain complex concepts in relatively simple terms.  Shows understanding of your subject.

Tom S.

God knows, I have watched hours, days and weeks of photography tutorials but I have to say that your “it is that easy” style the most appealing to me! I hope you will go on with [making] videos. I really think this is your strength.

Kim M.

I love this video! There are so many videos [out there], but I realized why I like yours so much….you make it fun! I have yet to see one of your videos that  I didn’t say “oh” out loud. Keep them coming, but mainly, thanks for making them.

Marcy L.

This was extremely helpful. I am new to landscape photography and your comments, first of all, make sense and secondly, show me some details to consider when out taking landscape photos. Thank you.

    I want buying art online to be a zero hassle, zero uncertainty experience, so I offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all my prints.

Nevertheless, if you don’t love your print, I will refund your payment completely and cover the cost of return shipping.

    FREE Shipping on Every Order

    I provide free domestic shipping to all orders placed within the continental United States. Depending on the size of the print ordered this often goes for Hawaii and Alaska as well. International orders will be charged shipping at the lowest possible rate. Any shipping charges will be shown on the order invoice for your approval.

    Monitor Color vs Print Color
    Unless you own a color-calibrated monitor, chances are your print will look slightly different than the photo you see on your screen. Be assured that I make every effort to have each print look as beautiful as possible. If you need to match a print’s colors exactly, please contact me to arrange a test proof.

    Payment and Security

    Traditional Photographic Prints

    Photographic prints are the traditional standard in photography, providing an elegant and timeless look. My prints are printed with photographic processes on archival papers for supreme longevity and clarity. These prints, offered on lustre, glossy, metallic, and Fuji Pearl papers, show rich colors and fine details for a true fine-art experience. My photographic prints are offered in limited editions of 300 and boast a 60-100 year lifetime.

    Museum-Quality Canvas Prints

    Canvas prints are becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to traditional photographic prints. They have an awesome presentation, adding a 3D, almost “painterly” feel to photos. Because the image is wrapped around the edge of the canvas, these prints don’t need to be framed, which saves time and hassle. In other words, these museum-quality canvas prints arrive ready-to-hang. My canvases are all giclee printed using acid free inks and canvases in order to provide a true archival product. Kept indoors and out of direct sun, canvases will last a lifetime.

    Metal Prints

    Metal prints are the ultimate contemporary printing method. They are created by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Because the image is infused into the surface and not on it, your images will take on an almost magical luminescence. When it comes to clarity, detail, color, and pop, nothing compares to a metal print. My metal prints come mounted on a 3/4″ inset frame which “floats” the print off the wall. For 1-1/4″ inset or or flush-mounted black frames there is a nominal additional fee.
