Marton Bokros
It was one of my first masterclasses from ARRI that I took. Really useful and eyeopening for a cinematographer like I am.
Phong Tran
It is a new technology for me, so it was great to have a deep insight and very detailed and practical examples to show the pros and cons on HDR on ALEXA systems
Guillermo Castellanos
Love this guy, Great Information
Brian K Wilcox
Great course with on set illustration of lighting choices and relationships to types of settings and color range.
Bradley Leech
Looks like there were moments in between set ups where they discuss results, grading and workflows that it is not shown on the course. That would have been very useful to have.

Great course thanks ARRI for offering it for free. It would have been nice to also see the section dealing with how the footage was handled in post.
Ben Turner
Most of the SDR and HDR results were not available to compare as he was lighting. The class was very informative indeed.
Very interesting lighting course, but not so fluent about HDR. At the end, the Q&A with the colorists saves the topic.
