Never Stop Exploring Ideas

Welcome back to How I Grade Part Two. This is a continuation of my effort to get my grading thoughts out of my head and onto your screens.

Obviously, if you don’t think the same way I do don’t worry!

Everyone thinks differently and my goals with this series are to try and give you some tips and tricks you might not have known about.

If you haven’t watched part one please do jump back to it here as this insight picks up exactly where that one left off!

Let’s jump into the video and finish off our shot.

In this insight, I cover how I audition look ideas and use my trusty 10 steps gradient to look at different exposure levels for inspiration.

I’ve focused more on explaining my process than going for a great look in this insight so if anyone would like a bonus part 3 on grading the shot from start to finish please let me know and I’ll get it recorded!

If you’ve got any questions, be sure to leave a comment!
