Chapter 10. Creative Techniques
So now that you’ve learned the basics of contrast and color, advanced techniques for making isolated corrections with shapes and HSL Qualification, how to identify key subjects for making idealized corrections, and the essentials of scene balancing and quality control adjustments, it’s time for a bit of fun.
The techniques I present in this chapter are the types of corrections you’d make when highly creative grading is necessary. Music videos, advertising spots, and even re-creations and dream sequences within more conventionally graded programs all benefit from your ability to pull something a little more wild out of your hat, and this chapter presents a variety of strategies that you can experiment with.
