"I love your teaching, Eric! You have a great way of explaining things and that in itself is inspiring. Your tips on printing have been key for my own printing. I have sold quite a few prints since I watched this video and customers have been extremely happy!"

    After having watched some of Eric's other tutorials and being happy with my purchase, I decided to buy this one when I started printing my own images to sell at a Christmas market. I followed his steps and was blown away with the quality of my prints! The owner of the print shop told me how impressed he was with how I prepped my file and couldn't believe it when I said this was my first time printing images. He told me how the sharpness and color accuracy was better than many pros he has printed for. This just goes to show the level of knowledge and expertise Eric has. When anyone has a question about printing I recommend they purchase this tutorial!

    I am someone who has consumed a lot of landscape photography post-processing tutorials, and in my opinion, Eric’s Tools of the Trade videos Volumes 1-3 are the best post-processing tutorials out there. Eric has a fantastic post-processing style, and these videos provide you with the various post-processing techniques Eric uses on his images. In particular, his techniques for achieving color separation/contrast are top notch and are something that I now do in almost all of my photos.

    Eric is a great instructor. He does a great job of not only explaining the “technical how to” of these various techniques, but he also explains the when and why you should or should not apply certain techniques to your images.

    I recommend all three videos. (In addition, I recommend pairing these Tool of the Trade videos with at least one of Eric’s “Start to Finish” tutorials as it will help you better tie all the various techniques together into a workflow that can be applied to your images.)

    If you're looking to add some great techniques to your workflow this tutorial is awesome! even if you're a beginner with photoshop. Eric does a great job explaining how to separate tones and light paint efficiently as to how light naturally affects different scenes. And if you're ever looking to print your work he even includes a great explanation on preparing for print. All in all this video is highly informative and recommend it to everyone! Great job Eric!

    I watched it yesterday. I'm probably an intermediate level user of PS and I learned a lot. There are many ways to do most things in PS and Eric does a good job of showing what he does and explaining why he does it that way. Easy to follow and understand.
