    Need help: How to color correct professionally (with examples)

    meghanbean

      Post to video forum (before and after): Hi, I really need some help  I want to color correct this video. I would love if someone had tips, either on:

      -How you would correct the original

      -What it looks like I'm doing wrong in my attempts (last 2 pictures)

       

       

      Thanks!

          I'd crunch it up a little more with a curves adjustment. These children don't look healthy and stronger contrast will help. Also push the reds toward a slightly more orange tone. They look too purple. There's also still an overall purple tinge which needs to be eliminated. See the included 3 minute quick shot of mine. Not perfect and requires more tweaking (too much yellow now, see the lips), but I think it better represents the feeling one would want to convey.
