A tutorial on matting and framing photographs with fine-art photographer Stephen Johnson.

A few years back, I had set up with Scott Kelby to do a class on Matting and Framing for a Photoshop World Conference I was teaching at. We knew we could not bring a frame shop onto the stage, so my friend and videographer Scott Sheppard came by the studio and shot a video of me working that we used during the talk.
As it happens, we made the video during a difficult time in my life, where I had put on weight and badly needed a haircut. For awhile, I was reluctant to put out the video at all because of those factors. Eventually I said to myself, what the hell, swallowed some pride and put it out there. It was a bit easier as I worked through the adversity and was feeling healthier.
We later decided to make it into a DVD and offer it for sale. All along, we thought a post of the video would be a nice thing for people to have access to online as well. So here is the un-chaptered version we put up sometime back, now served up on Vimeo for faster viewing.
