The mind of a filmmaker/cinematographer

Colour Correction vs. Colour Grading

These two terms are often used interchangeably, albeit incorrectly. Colour correction as the name suggests is fixing/cleaning the original picture i.e. remove colour casts, relighting, white balance while Colour Grading is applying a look and feel to the picture.

Picture 1: Original picture

Picture 2: Colour Corrected picture

Picture 3: Colour Graded picture

Camera: Blackmagic Production Camera 4K

Lens: Samyang 35mm T1.5

Graded in Davinci Resolve 

Wrapped! #LifeOfHers

This will probably be the last set of Production Stills I put up until Post Production is complete.

7days, 2.2Terabytes of data, blood, sweat and dealing with the diva behaviour of my co-director, #lifeofhers has now wrapped.

Massive thanks to @WaikiHarnais for brilliant production skills!

I find intellectualising compositions and lighting fascinating.

If you mind can’t see it, your camera can’t.
