Join Robbie Carman for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a high-contrast look, part of Final Cut Pro X: Color Correction.
In the previous chapter, we talked about expanding contrast to add a little more…pop or punch to a shot.…In this movie, I want to talk about using some contrast or exposure corrections…to create a very high contrast look.…And the technique of creating a high contrast look is actually pretty similar to…that of expanding contrast.…But we are going to take it a step further.…In my mind, there are two things that really define a high contrast look.…Deep or crushed blacks or shadows and blown out highlights.…And this project contains a clip that actually has a great deal of…natural contrast in it.…And I can see that with the highlights on the shirt than the darker areas back…here against the wall.…
What I actually want to do is actually expand upon this natural contrast to…create a super stylized, high contrast look.…And we are going to do that by accessing the Exposure pane of the Color Board.…So with the clip selected, let's go ahead and use the keyboard shortcut…Command+6 to open up the Color Board.…
