Hollywood Edit – Weekly Lightroom 3 Edit Episode 17

By Pye Jirsa on March 23rd 2012

Welcome to Episode 17 of our Weekly Lightroom Edit. In this Lightroom video tutorial we wanted to show you guys how to get that contrasty Hollywood Teal/Orange look that you see in many films today. Virtually every Michael Bay movie is color graded to have this super contrasty teal-orange look, and it is an effect that has grown quite popular in Hollywood in general. Start looking at color grading in the movies you watch, I think you will be surprised just how many movies use this color grading color schema.

Regardless, effects that are great for movies, are also great for stills. So, we are going to recreate this poppy teal-orange look in this tutorial.

Hope you all enjoy!
