    I hate to say it, but it’s reading tips like the 80% method that ran me away from photography school! As he says early, your eye begins to accept the colors it sees. I don’t feel the need to go into such a convoluted solution to a perception issue. Who’s to say the colors I see are the same as the colors you see? Our eyes haven’t been calibrated! It doesn’t need to be made that complicated in my opinion. I guess it’s a fine approach if you’re a professional retoucher (and there are plenty), but I’d rather just keep shooting. Love the show though. Keep up the good work, and I’ll see you at Skip’s Summer School in Chicago :)
