He is a great teacher, but I resent the confusion over the wonders of producing and sharing photos and videos with apps and mobile devices, vs. producing fine art or high quality specialized portrait or landscape or wildlife, etc. Standards have not gone down just because so many people have great access to producing good things. Great literature is still great literature, no matter how many people write good things. Same is true for the visual arts. Short cutting the methods that produce great work, including producing great black and white and great prints, doesn't produce greatness. I love his idea, I follow them, but that is no reason to negate the traditional greatness that still has no shortcuts.

Bryan lays out a comprehensive, yet efficient approach to converting images to black and white and included many examples in this course. It's more than just clicking the "black and white" buttons in Lightroom or Photoshop. I especially like the suggestion to make Presets of the various B&W conversions I've used so they can easily be applied during import. Bryan also covered very quickly various other very useful and fun Adobe products including Adobe Spark Post and Portfolio, and I even made a Spark Post during class and posted it to my facebook page. Lots of interesting content in this class, which I'm definitely going to watch again!

Great class. I want to watch it two or three more times... then go try my hand at creating Black & White "stories". I liked Bryan's artistic mindset as well as his processing techniques.
