Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Color correction, part of Creating a Mini Documentary with Premiere Elements.
Color correction is the process of tweaking the colors in our images to…make them look better, match shot-to- shot better, and sometimes to bring…out an emotive element.…Now, doing a mini-documentary, how much you use is going to depend…on a number of things.…How your piece was shot, whether it was shot at different times and places that…creates lighting situations that need to be matched, and if you want to get…involved in anything that is quote-unquote more emotive.…
We're looking here at our picture-locked timeline. And the first thing I want to…emphasize is that color correction is never really about getting a single shot…perfect so much as seeing where there is distraction between shots and fixing…those shots so that as you cut from one to the other we don't notice a change.…There's one shot I'd like to concentrate on by way of example.…I want to play it here, starting with the shot prior, so you can see the…difference and notice that distraction for the viewer.…
