Colour Grade

First colour grading:
The first image is original one. Through this picture we can see that there is no editing of colour in it. The background color is very nature as footage was shot in an indoor place. The light was incandescent so the actress looks more realistic.Screen Shot 2015-05-05 at 9.02.44 PM

The second image was edited by using the three colour effect. When we drag in the colour effect to the video, three section of colour effects will shows up: Shadows, Midtones and Highlights. We use these three section of colour to edit the colour of video. In this footage, i changed the Shadows towards the blue, changed the Midtones towards a little more purple and changed the Highlights one towards light pink.I want to make the colour of footage darker, so I upped the Input Levels a little bit.  So that is the result of it.

The  colour of the third image is more soft. In this image,I made the Shadow more red. So when we look at the shadow, we can see that the colour of shadow are more red than the original image. I also changed the Highlight more towards yellow. So in this image, we can see that the colour of ceiling is light yellow. So the whole colour of these picture looks more warm.屏幕快照 2015-05-06 下午5.13.38

The last picture is very dark, because I wanted to edit it to be totally different from the rest. So I upped the level of Input and also turned up the Tonal Range Definition but in this image is hard to see  Bronte’s face.

The second one is of a very warm tone, the shadow and Midtone is leaning toward red  and the highlight is leaning toward a little bit  of light yellow so the colour of image does not change too much.

The third one is cold in tone, because I wanted to edit an opposite style to the last one. In this image the colour of the window and the bricks is leaning more towards blue tones, which give it a vintage sort of feel.

I am satisfied with the last one’s colour, because this image looks more realistic. It gives a more cinematic feel to it. I am satisfied when I look at this colour version of the footage.

The colour of the second image is leaning more towards warm tones. The whole image colour is yellow, so the colour of this image is more old school.

I edited the colour of this image to blue. As this shot was taken in a room with lights that were leaning towards more cold tones, I tried to increase the colour to make it more cold by turning the Shadow, Midtones, and Highlight into blue color.

The color of last image is really similar to the third one, but the only difference is that the colour is more evenly spread out.
