Adding exposure to a specific part of a shot during color correction

Aug 23, 2013 7:01 PM

Hi all,

I have been color correcting some shots as a part of a video project I have undertaken and have run into a bit of a dilemma. The face of my subject in the shot is underexposed, where as the background due to windows and natural light, is perfectly exposed. I tried to draw a mask around my subject with the pen tool, but that only isolates the subjects head and makes the other parts of the shots black. How can I just expose the subjects head in this shot?


Thank you so much,
