Short and to the point. Great class.
I like how the lessons are very straightforward and easy to go along in the videos. His intentions with creating his images and his work flow were clear. Although I didn't find any groundbreaking or over the top advice, they were all great advice for all photographers getting the hang of basic workflow.
