Exactly what I needed

I’ve just binged your Colour Grading podcast and felt compelled to send a message of thanks. I’m a hobbyist photographer who’s interest has been leaking more and more into video. Your tutorial style is exactly what I’ve been looking for. I appreciate your way of simplifying things that aren’t easy to find a simple answer to elsewhere, especially HDR, LUTs and the filmic look. I also love the trail of how to use different colours you’re leaving through the episodes like breadcrumbs. I’ll no doubt listen to season 1 again and look forward to season 2.

Thanks a million - you are greatly appreciated.
