Color grading is the process of altering and enhancing the color of a motion picture, video or, in our case, a digital image. Although every step of your retouching workflow is important, color grading has the potential to be the most impactful one and can easily make or break your final result. With skillful color grading, you can make your images pop off the page even with the simplest subject matter.
Our goal when creating this course was to help you masterfully color grade your personal and client work by providing you with a solid system and a set of versatile and intuitive color grading tools. Not only do we want you to understand what specific tools to use, but more importantly when and why to use them.
