    “I had just wrapped a series at the beginning of the Summer and knew I had a couple months off coming up, I saw Rob advertise his new course and I thought it to be a no brainer. I’m not one for taking too much time off, I like to continue researching and learning and Rob’s course is the perfect platform to do this. Because of the bite size clips, I could take in the information and review what I had just learned without being overawed. I could jump in and out at my leisure and it was easy to go back and watch the clips again to get back up to speed. I love the idea of adapting the curve to everything I see, this way I can reverse engineer the lighting easily in pretty much anything I see. This has really helped me not only in pre-production with reference images, but also understanding how to adapt them and find a visual style for whatever I want to shoot. All of Rob’s suggested reading and viewing is great, although I had known about most of it, he has introduced me to some new films, books and artists which I have enjoyed immensely. In conclusion, I can not recommend this course enough, with the enjoyable and easy to understand bite size videos, you will begin to understand more about how to utilise the potential of your cameras sensor to create wonderful visuals using the characteristic curve.”
