Easy to follow, good information.
Great class about lighting in landscapes. I never heard much about "Blue hours" before. I will try out this concept more in the future. Thanks!

Fantastic course - combined with part II inspired a confirmed Sunrise Denier to get up at 5am to shoot a sunrise. And again a few days later because it was so awesome - for finally I have Seen The (morning) Light. Highly recommended, understanding what JP is teaching in this course will boost your landscapes immediately if you put in the effort, and like me, using that lacklustre midday light is what is holding you back.
