    Hi Daniel, great class. Thanks!
    The only thing i didn’t understand completely was the colour temperature. How do you decide what colour temperature did you set in your camera?
    and for example if you decide to set 5500K in the camera, then in camera raw you move the slider to that value?

      Thank you Ditta!!
      I set my camera up according to the color temperature of the scene. A good starting point is to look up the kelvin temperature scale for photography. It shows you the different light sources and what kelvin temperature the burn at e.g Daylight is typically anything from 5600k – 6500k

    Thank you so much Daniel for sharing your work! Your tutorials are so amazing and helpful. Thanks again for pointing me in the direction to download the files for the frequency separation. I totally missed this. Thanks again, already excited to watch the others.
