Kudos for the Silver Efex Pro “Guide”

I’ve gotten some really nice feedback from some customers who recently purchased my PDF book, The Photographer’s Guide to Silver Efex Pro.

Here’s an excerpt of one message I got the other day:

“Thank you for this wonderful book. I’m only on page 48, but what I’ve learned is considerable, even though I’ve used SEP for some time now.  You do very good work!” 

I also got notified today of the following review over at Peter West’s blog:

“Wonderful manual. I got your NX and NX2 manuals as well”


Thanks to everyone for all the positive comments!
