    This was great for fixing skin tones and overall tones. I was able to pause and continue the video while editing my own image to follow the steps.

    Another top-notch presentation. As before, the walk-thru of the scene, arranging the subjects to optimize lighting and talking the viewer through your thinking and decision-making add great value to this lesson.
    Question: With the great detail and precision you place on perfect colors, are you proving digitals or prints to your customers? If digitals, their results may not live up to the quality you put in. If prints, do you use Soft Proofing in LR or PS? Thanks!

    • Daniel Venter

      Hello Clifton! Thank you so much! Yes I offer both prints and digital to clients. I don’t use soft proofing in either as printing services are pretty good with sRGB files these days.
