Today’s exercise focused on color grading and how the change in color affects the overall mood of the picture. For this exercise, I found a picture on Flickr.com and used that as the canvas to experiment in color correction.

Initial color edit
This color edit, done on Adobe Photoshop, came about simply by me messing around with the color curves to come up with a darker look. As seen above, it’s a bit too dark, harsh and oversaturated.

I hereby establish this post as the first “blog” post I ever made. Even though I’ve been doing forum posts and the like for years now, I have yet to make a blog like this…until now.

Until then, stay tuned.
