Too much theory, almost no practice. If you're looking for a series of mini tutorials that take your from total beginner to professional colorist, that's not a course for you. This course is basically a bunch of definitions stacked together. A few practical examples, but quite hard to follow. I've learned a little bit for the theoretical part, but I'm still incapable in terms of practical color grading. So, I'm disappointed.

I was looking for a course that gave a good break down of the colour science and terminology. This course did that for me so I am happy about it.
