As an event photographer, I was really looking forward to this course; especially the post production aspect. Maybe my expectations were set too high?
The shoot location videos were fine, but when it came to post production, it got complex and confusing:
- The example RAW shots you get with the download don't always match the ones he's working on in his videos.
- There are a lot of presets he uses as part of his workflow which get no explanation as to why he uses them or why the settings of these presets are the numbers they are.
- It's maybe unfortunate I use Lightroom (import, label, rate, delete) + Photoshop (post produce) versus Bridge + Photoshop which is what he uses in his workflow.
I therefore found myself having to stop, understand what was being done in Bridge and make sure I had this covered in Lightroom (I'm not likely to add another software application into my workflow).
If I'd paid full price for this course, I would probably be VERY disappointed with this, but as it was on an offer of $99, I felt less ripped off.
