ajbskito me its not artsy at all. just someone who doesnt know how to work a camera.
but im liking stuff thats underexposed, grainy and white balance is set so the snow is grayish or creamish like bp and bdogs ensemble.
andrewsmartIt looks good if the filming and editing compliment it, or if there are coloirful rails or trees and clothing etc to contrast the snow. The problem is when people do it without knowing how or why.
Some shots in this edit use the effect really well, but only in tasteful circumstances:
weastcoatI totally agree this is the right amount of brightness added. You can still make out most of the snow details. I think what OP is getting at is shit so bright that you can’t even tell it’s snow, you just see a skier and rail and the brightness starts to effect the skier’s figure itself.
rojo.grandeSet my wb wrong a few times and refuse to use the footage. That’s my standpoint
eheathyo, wb is the easiest thing to fix in post, hmu if you need help
rojo.grandeI played w it a bit but prolly did it wrong. You familiar with resolve at all?
ajbskiyou cant fix overexposure in post... too much media loss.
eheathfor the most part basic color correction is pretty universal but I have uses resolve. its pretty easy with skiing, you just mess around with the white point in your highlights (aka color temp) in your color wheels and just move that around until the snow is the shade of white you want. You can also do with this temp/tint sliders but its a bit more limited than using the color wheels. Im pretty sure resolve has an eye dropper for wb as well, you can select what is white in your scene and it will automatically adjust the wb.
rojo.grandeSick thank you. I’ve played with tint quite a bit and didn’t get the look I wanted. Tried to resolve it a bit with a new color preset on my rig and it helped a bit. I’ve only really used the color wheels a few times but I need to start messing with them and nodes a bit more. Took a while to learn the camera and I’ve still got a ways to go but dialing in my post is next up. Thanks boss

eheathyeah man color shit is confusing as fuck, it took me a long time to even understand it and im still not a great colorist.
the next step is to learn how to read scopes like RGB parade, this will show you a representation of the color in your image and can be very helpful when trying to dial in your wb, contrast, etc. feel free to DM me if you have any other questions
