Welcome to CreativeRAW - Christopher O'Donnell

Thanks for signing up, it’s great to have you here.

If you purchased a course and/or requested a free resource, you should receive an email in about 10 minutes with further instructions on how to access it.

And if you’re new here, you’ll also receive a few complimentary emails on how to strengthen your creativity in the digital darkroom. Think of these lessons as “primers” to help align your creative compass, and provide more clarity as your process your photographs.

In the meantime, feel free to browse through some of my best resources, made especially for landscape photography.

Basic Camera Principles

Most of you probably already know what your aperture, shutter speed, and ISO actually do – the technical function, and how they work together to create your photograph.

However, what I’ve noticed over the years is that most photographers don’t fully understand the “why” behind selecting a specific setting…

Or when to make changes (and when NOT to) in order to create the image they want…

Or be able to accurately predict what will happen when those changes are made, and how to deal with the potential side effects.

Many of the existing resources out there fail to cover these topics properly, so I decided to create my own comprehensive guides:

These guides are NOT simple reads…but will most likely answer any questions you may have about aperture, shutter speed, or ISO.

Get Started with Some Premium Video Lessons

The digital darkroom is an exciting place of creativity, but can also be an overwhelming place to those unfamiliar. Where’s the best place to start?

I’ve pulled a few in-depth video lessons from my premium training program that should help you get started down the right path.

Lightroom and Photoshop

The Histogram

The Curves Tool

Smoother Brushwork

Basic Concepts of Light and Color

Below are a few sample lessons which introduce the basic building blocks of all photographs…and how luminosity, color, and contrast work together to create the image you want.

Contrast, Luminosity, and Color

Creating Depth and Dimension

This is just a small sample of the training you can find in The Darkroom Training Program, which is my proven system for creating extraordinary, artistic landscape photographs with total confidence in Lightroom and Photoshop.

Join the CreativeRAW Facebook Group

Enrollment opens up a few times a year, so most likely it’s closed at the moment.

However, you can find more premium tutorials with your FREE creativeRAW account that I’ve set up for you.

Your Free creativeRAW Account

This grants you complete access to some of my best resources that unpack the fundamentals of creative landscape photography…

Such as full video courses on both Lightroom and Photoshop, with practice images and video files for you to download so you can follow along with each lesson.

This account also contains downloadable eBooks, cheatsheets, and PDF guides….so you can take them with you in the field on your phone or iPad.

You can think of this account as a “vault” where I store all of my downloadable goodies, so you don’t have to sign up for each and every one.

It’s also where I first add new videos and guides, so check back often to see what’s new.

You’ll receive a separate email shortly with your login information and instructions on how to access it…so make sure to keep an eye out for that.

I encourage you to log in right away and get started.

Another thing you can do is check out my entire list of in-depth written articles and guides specifically for landscape and nature photographers.

And finally, join the creativeRAW Facebook group

Make sure to drop by the creativeRAW Facebook Group and introduce yourself! I may be a bit biased, but there’s a fantastic group of fellow landscape photographers in there.

And remember: if you have any questions, write to me directly by clicking the orange chat box in the bottom-right corner of your screen…and let me know what you’re struggling with the most. I’ll be happy to point you in the right direction.

In the meantime, keep an eye on your email for more in-depth videos and tutorials coming your way, made specifically to help you create better photographs. This content is exclusive to email subscribers, and I can’t wait to share it with you!
