In Peter's words:
If I've done my job here,you'll be taking better pictures, and you will know why they are better.
You'll be printing,correcting,improving, and finessing your shots through a greater experience base,and you will be enjoying Photoshop instead of thinking it's just too hard to learn. That camera in your hand is a fabulous instrument that beckons you to take pictures.It has a lot to teach you and you have a lot to teach it.
Let the exposures begin.
