29 Apr Underwater Color Correction
UNDERWATER COLOR CORRECTION IS ESSENTIAL
FROM RAW TO A VIVID FOOTAGE
Many of my clients struggle with finding the right color for their footage. As a passionate photographer and filmmaker, I find a certain amusement in color correction. I tackle the footage and give it that vivid cinematic look.
Raw footage can always look dull, with high levels of exposure and not aesthetic to the eye. The purpose of color correction is making the footage work the footage as an initial framework and correct the colors for a better view.
The process of correcting the colors of a clip or image is quite extensive and difficult to explain. It takes patience and experience to master it. In the sample above I’ve focused on decreasing the vast amount of blues and increasing the yellows and the blacks.
Another example of underwater color correction
One of my favorite ways of shooting footage on a low budget is using a GoPro. All my recent footage comes from Gopro Hero 4 (Black Edition). However, the colors underwater will always look dull and green if you are not using any filters.
These filterswork super well. I use them to backfire the degrading green you obtain from underwater. And it serves as a great aid to adjust white balance.
