    An awesome little course. I had been just about to throw out an odd size piece of plexi when i saw this course. 20 minutes of work later and i have made my lightbox and am shooting really neat images.

    For a shorter-form class, this gets right to the point with practical information; and Andrew indulges the audience questions enough for us to see some creative experimentation with the final product.
