    Great class Matt! I am about two-thirds the way through the class and have learned a lot about Lightroom and the objective of this course. I must admit I was over-whelmed by the amount of material covered and that was probably due to not having prior knowledge about Lightroom. I have since signed up for the 7 day trial of Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan and then went through their "beginner's" tutorial. If you are contemplating taking this course, I would highly recommend taking the Adobe Lightroom tutorials first. They cleared up a lot of confusion on my part and I now have a better understanding of the concepts Matt covered. I'm actually going to go back and retake what I viewed to help reinforce both what Matt initially covered and the basic concepts tutorials offered by Adobe. Again, great job Matt and thanks for all the useful information!

    Matt is the best and he his the same in person. I had the fortunate opportunity to run into Matt on the side of the road at Dallas Divide in Colorado a couple of years ago.... he is the real deal. I have learned almost all my LR post processing from him when he was with Kelby and have continued to follow him over to On1 as he is the best teacher out there when it comes to Post. Great class and bring him back again. Another great CL class ....... bravo!........ Johnny Boyd @

    I watched the first day but waited until I watched the second day to decide which course to purchase (Retired with limited funds) but found out the sale on day 1 was only good for one day but decided to order the Landscape course and pay the extra money. I then went to Matt's website and ordered the complete package of plug-ins for $30 to take advantage of his great price for the course, order #00664. I received confirmation of my order but the link sent only contained the 22 presets offered with the course and the SKY presets for the second day course on long exposures. I can not find any link for contacting support on Matt's website to correct this mix up, can you help? I just signed up for Adobe's Photographers subscription and would like to have the complete set of presets to help limit my learning curve. Thanks for your assistance (and making these courses available). David Kerbyson,
