  • Had another quick go off it, white balance was off in the last I did.

    For the highlights they seem fine to let shine, sometimes some things are shiney? I feel it looks okay.

              I quite like the darker mids/ shadows here.

                • Dammit, Aaron, I keep waiting for you to make a color grade that I don't absolutely love. Still waiting.

                  Which is my way to say I love your eye for color. Keep up the good stuff.

                      Good eye. Yes, I often grade black magic footage under the 2383 D65 LUT. There's some other stuff going on, but I like how the print LUTs wrangle color. Namely, they tend to enhance that blue green and yellow green separation, which makes foliage stand out instead of becoming monochromatic green. I used to do a secondary for this but the print LUT seems to play pretty well with blackmagic footage

                      Thanks Keith! Hopefully one day I'll finally make a grade you hate.

                          Very natural and organic! How was your approach? Did you use a LUT?

                          thanks

                            Thank you! No LUT. Just tried my best to bring everything to a natural white balance and then give a cool feeling from the sky.

                            • Thank you all for grading this. This was a very difficult day to shoot. After I consulted with the Accuweather app, I though we had a few hours without rain, but that wasn't the case. So the bounce I took to get some light back into his face (and keep his skin tones white balanced), was instead used as an umbrella to protect the camera...

                              Even so, these bmd cameras are a beast and the ability to shoot RAW is a blessing in these cases. So I had to expose for the skin tones, which meant the top parts of his skin were overexposed because of the toppy light coming from all the clouds (add to this that the ground was green or brown, so whatever light was bouncing back to him, was making his face green).

                              I actually tried a different, more neutral look, no LUT while trying to preserve as much of the highlights as I could. If you notice the top of his hands / arms, there is a nice rolloff. Now that I think of it, my hollywood blackmagics would've complement this nicely too...
