The Art and technique of Digital Color Correction

Author: Steve Hullfish

"Color correction has always been a true tradecraft. The only way you learned was by sitting at the feet of a master.
Steve has demystified much of that and given both beginners and professionals a fantastic resource. Reading this is like sitting at the feet of the masters."
— Lucas Wilson, ASSIMILATE, INC.

"...demystifies the technical art of color correction by patiently distilling the wisdom of over a dozen professional colorists down to a skillset any dedicated editor or motion graphics artist can learn."
— Chris Meyer, Founding Partner, CyberMotion; author — Creating Motion Graphics with After Effects, currently in its 4th Edition; After Effects Apprentice

"...great for editors who are tackling their first color-grading job as well as those who do it every day, but want a deeper understanding of how to turn color correction into color enhancement.... Hullfish goes past the 'how-to' so you alsounderstand the 'why'. This book is a must-have for anyone involved in color correction for video."
— Oliver Peters, President and Founder, Oliver Peters Post Production Services

Containing decades of industry experience and know-how, The Art and Technique of Digital Color Correction shows postproduction professionals how to take their art to the next level. Featuring correction techniques performed in a variety of color correction software applications (Apple's Color, Synthetic Aperture's Color Finesse, Avid Xpress Pro, among others), this book turns what has long been a misunderstood 'black art' into a set of skills that any dedicated editor or motion graphics artist can begin to master. Packed with explanations, tips, and concepts thatbuild on each other, The Art and Technique of Digital Color Correction will teach you how to:

•Fix poorly exposed shots and shots with color casts
•Create looks
•Match shots
•Master secondary color correction techniques
•Use color correction to advance a story

The Art and Technique of Digital Color Correction features unprecedented insight into the skills needed to master this essential art. The book allows you to improve your grading art and craft with techniques and inspiration from the masters, as more than a dozen industry professionals guide you through their grading process, explaining the "hows" and "whys" of each grade. Colorists looking to hone their skills can work side-by-side with these pros by examining each color-grading step they make on the tutorial video files included on the companion DVD.
