The topic for this weeks episode comes from the multiple reader requests that I received last week, after posting the “How I Shot It” -video about my latest photograph “Memento”. You guys expressed your interest in learning more about the post-processing and colour grading that I did to the image, so I decided that today we’d take an in-depth look at colour grading with the curves adjustment panel:
So here’s a quick written recap of the steps that I went through when working on the colours for “Memento”:
1) Increased the contrast a tiny bit
2) Added some blue tones into the shadows and yellow into the mid-tones/highlights
3) Added some green into the shadows and mid-tones
4) Added a slight tint of cyan (the opposite colour of red) into the shadows and added some red into the mid-tones
5) Opened up the Hue/Saturation -panel and desaturated the yellow tones
As always, if you have any questions concerning the video and this article or suggestions for future episodes, just shoot me an email ([email protected]) or leave a comment below, and I’ll do my best to answer all of your questions. :)
