Day 11: 25 Insights in 25 Days Holiday Marathon

Photochemical Grading – Part Two

In part one of this insight we looked at the work of color timers and in this insight, it’s time to get our hands dirty and try it for ourselves. This is the first time I’ve tried this route personally so you’ll see my mistakes and struggles as I run into them.

One thing I found was it was very relaxing knowing that I could only adjust things on a broader scale. I found myself trying to get the best out of the existing image instead of trying to twist it into what i wanted to do.

I wish I could keep that feeling in a bottle and crack it out when I’m in a difficult client session!

I use the Printer Light Hotkeys in this insight which will make your life a lot easier, Aaron Williams has a great shortcut list here!

I hope you find it as interesting as I have and would love to discuss how you got on in the comments!
