New to Color Grading in Adobe Premiere CS6: Help?
  • Howdy. So, I have a Panasonic GH2, a few lenses, and some minor film equipment. I shoot with the Driftwood Quantum X Orion 4vB and I know how to slap images together and throw in some music.

    However, I'm kinda lost when it comes to color grading. Here's what I shot the other day to kill time:

    Not terrible. I always try to shoot it as close to how I want it to look in Premiere. But, this time around, I experimented with some color grading. I can get into the details if need be. But, really, I'm just looking for opinions. Does this look bad? What would you change? Etc.

    Thanks in advance!

    As it is always best to understrand grading basics, and not go for preset looks.

  • That looks like a great book. Thanks for sharing.

  • Vitaliy for the the win. Buying it now. Thank you, sir!

  • To see the scope of it, a downloadable table of contents in PDF form.

  • @KayJayButton- I like your video above from May 8, as well as the follow up from May 22nd. Since then, have you gotten your color grading workflow and method down? Do you have any references that you would care to share? I am following in your wake, and I'm stubbing my toe on the same exact steps, I'm sure. Any crumbs that you can throw to the huddled masses are appreciated!!
