Steve has demystified much of that and given both beginners and professionals a fantastic resource. Reading this is like sitting at the feet of the masters."

"...demystifies the technical art of color correction by patiently distilling the wisdom of over a dozen professional colorists down to a skillset any dedicated editor or motion graphics artist can learn."
