    This is a awesome tutorial. Daniel is a fantastic teacher. I actually understand how he explains his process. Worth every penny. I have several and I am never disappointed!

    Such a beautiful photo! It’s great to see a tutorial where you stretch beyond your typical methods to really bring in an artistic touch! Amazing what you can do with your photos, Daniel! Really inspires me to capture better photos of my own and your instruction helps open the doors of creativity!

  3. Natasha Patovirta

    These tutorials are beyond helpful. I like that Daniel walks you through multiple ways to do things, as well as corrects himself on bits that didn’t turn out the best way. His attention to small detail is what separates him from other tutorials I’ve purchased.

  4. Ashleigh Lee

    Absolutely love this tutorial. Everything is explained so well and is easy to follow along and understand, and he explains the why too not just does it and shows the end result. Such a breathtaking image
