I’ve been so lucky to have owned my Lensbaby Velvet 56mm since last October. And as excited as I was to get my hands on this lens, I was super happy to realize the fact that this lens was indeed a great addition to my collection. And here is why!
Filmmaking is a huge process to go through and color correction is just one step of the entire filmmaking process, but oh what a difference it can make. Through experimentation and watching other filmmakers using various techniques to grade their images, I’ve got some tips and tricks that work for me.
Using video scopes in color grading is a personal passion of mine and I am going to tell you why you want to use them too. Before we dive in, I am working in Premiere Pro CC, so I will be referring to the Lumetri scopes. If you use another program, you might have slightly different terminology, however I ensure you that you’ll be able to translate the information found here and follow along in your respective software.
