I'm in no sense a color grader. I know my way around photoshop and I sort of get DaVinci. But one thing I do know for sure is that I never ever stop being amazed by the difference between the original frame and the one you get after working with it. It is so freaking cool!
Both in still photography and film. Analog or digital. You can do a little or loads. You can change the mood from happy to sad with the same frame, just by changing small parts. So I'm not gonna neither give you a lesson in how or keep telling you something amazing. I just love grading and thank god there are people out there devoting their lives to this! R e s p e c t ! ! !
