  1. There is some very interesting material here, and I'm excited to gain insight into techniques that will enhance my color correction workflow. However, I'm not a fan of the way it's conveyed. Pedagogically, I would prefer it be explained more clearly. It feels as though the speaker has gone out of his way to over-complicate the topic at hand, and in other instances, refuses to adapt his techniques to his audience. One minor example of this is the way he sets up curves adjustment to the opposite configuration of what I, and I would guess the great majority Photoshop users are accustomed to, in reversing the white and black points. In my opinion, that introduces an unnecessary bit of confusion when trying to follow along his quick adjustments. He also has organized the tutorials so that you must watch all 3 series to see the final adjustments, which makes you wade through a morass of steps and videos. Even though the editing concepts he expounds upon may be more complicated than those in other tutorials (perhaps far more so), I believe he could have organized and taught them in a much more user friendly way. I will do my best to follow along, but this is a slog already.
