Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Using custom color profiles, part of Learning DSLR Filmmaking.
Brian Liepe: One way to assign your own color and contrast characteristics to your image …is by setting up your color profiles. …Although I recommend shooting with a flat color profile like the one Chad discussed …in the previous movie. …There is a large range of options that allow you to affect your footage by adjusting controls, …like saturation, contrast, sharpness, and color phase. …In this example, you can see that color is not very vibrant or saturated and the contrast is really low. …In the next shot I've cranked up everything.
