Even though I've taken a couple video editing courses, we didn't spend too much time on color correction and color grading. What time like the present to learn how to do it on my own.
On YouTube I'm subscribe to http://www.youtube.com/user/OliviaTechVideos. One of her videos asks her viewers to color grade a video clip so I decided to try it out.
I watched a couple YouTube tutorials on color correcting using RGB curves and started playing with color on Premiere CS6. I've never used it till today and it's awesome. I've edited in the past with PowerDirector(limited at color correction) at home and FCP 7 and 10 in school.
My grading turned out how I like it, with the blacks super crushed.
After getting more familiar with the Premiere interface, I gotta work on my cousin's GoPro clips that he took while he was on vacation!
