Introduction to Color Grading: Preparing for the Shoot

Often you'd be quite surprised what a magazine or editorial portrait looks like before Photoshop®. No, it's not about changing the skin or body-- it's about the tones and colors. In this segment we will begin by creating some timeless imagery using simple sets and lighting setups. Then, we will crank our creativity up a few notches by exploring color grading in Photoshop®. You'll learn several approaches and tools to create drastically different emotional responses to your portraits using selective color, split toning, plug-ins and more! There are many ways you can transform the look of your images for a drastically different feel.

Reviews

  • Awesome! I just love Lindsay's photography and teaching style, this is another great class with her! Very informative and good to understand.
  • I really enjoyed this class. Lindsay does a great job of showing Color Grading from shoot to final product. Lindsay has the perfect balance between understanding what to do for an effect and explaining why we are doing it. Side note: This course gives you the tools, but much of color grading still depends on the photographer to determine what style or mood you want before the image is taken. If you know what style you want this course will help you achieve it.
  • Lindsay is such a talented educator and photographer! Not only is the class filled with tons of information, but I love the pace at which she teaches. I have several creativelive classes on editing, which I also like, but I really love the information in this one. I will be referring to it many times. You won't regret purchasing this class.
