Some great insights in there. Thanks Doug and LP.

I'm really enjoying the Lowe Post style of classes. A great antidote to the YouTube style 'How To' style vids.

As always, I really appreciate the masterclasses here at Lowepost. However, I feel that, in this one, a huge chunk of the work was done in preproduction and we don't get to see that part.

I wish we could have been given more insight into how that show LUT was elaborated.

Also, the footage was shot so incredibly well that little had to be done in post. I'm on Lowepost because I'm starting out and, so far, I've had to fix the colors and exposure on every single shot thrown at me. 

In other words, this masterclass felt more theoretical than practical.

I do agree, but I feel that's the point with these - to get in their minds more than learning what buttons to push.
