The Art and Technique of Digital Color Correction
The Art and Technique of Digital Color Correction/by Steve Hullfish (Author)
A practical, inspirational guide that speaks to the artistry of digital video color correction, featuring insight and lessons from some of the best color correction artists in the postproduction business
"Another great offering from Steve Hullfish. There are so many texts out there covering so many different aspects of post-production. Yet the final, all-important step of color correction and finishing has been a true tradecraft. The only way you learned was by sitting at the feet of a master. Steve has demystified much of that and given both beginners and professionals a fantastic resource.
Reading through this text is like sitting at the feet of the masters listening to wisdom. Randy Starnes, Mike Most, Greg Creaser. these are the guys I call when I'm confused about concepts or need clarification, and this is my business! Greg makes a wicked barbecue as well."

"As more of us shoot our own footage, we are also required to become our own colorists. The Art and Technique of Color Correction will help
you develop the skills you need to master this essential art.
Steve demystifies the technical art of color correction by patiently distilling the wisdom of eight professional colorists down to a skill
set any dedicated editor or motion graphics artist can learn. Those new to the field will particularly appreciate how he introduces all of the technical and slang terms required while still speaking plain English."

"Steve Hullfish has written another down-to-earth analysis of digital color correction for video. It's great for editors who are tackling their first color grading job as well as those who do it every day, but want a deeper understanding of how to turn color correction into color enhancement. Not only does Steve give simple and clear explanations of the technical aspects, but he walks the reader through the steps that leading colorists use to apply their own artistic touch. And best of all, readers can try these approaches for themselves, using the very same sample clips. He goes past the 'how-to' so you also understand the 'why'. This book is a must-have for anyone involved in color correction for video."
