Color is a powerful signal in video; it can subtly project emotion, mood, time of day, and location. Learn to manipulate these visual elements in a variety of shots, from interior spaces to outside landscapes, with color grading. Filmmaker, colorist, and experienced editor Simon Walker shows how to simulate a light source and different types of light, and choose an evocative color for your footage to tell the story of a particular location. Plus, learn techniques to change the time of day, the type of room, and the overall mood of a location.
Simon works with Adobe Premiere Pro and the Magic Bullet Colorista II and Looks plugins, but these lessons can be applied to any color correction workflow.
Part of the job was making color corrections, is making it easy for the audience to see what's happening in the image, and to know which details in the shot are important. One techinque is to use vignettes, to subtly lead the viewers eye, towards the area you want them to be looking at. Depth of field also helps focus the audience attention on certain elements in the shot. And, creating depth of field, in post production mimics the use of more expensive lenses and gives a more filmic look to your shots. Which can also lend a higher production quality and a higher value to your projects.
So this is what we'll be looking at in this chapter, creating fake depth of field, in post production on the (UNKNOWN) timeline.
