Analysis/Reflection 5. Question 1.

Nearly every shot of our final film had some sort of colour correction done to it. We had a lot of shots that were grainy due to a variety of things as well as colour correcting to a more cinematic aesthetic.

Fixed mid-tones to more orange, makes the image slightly brighter and more cinematic. Lowered the output and made the shadows more blue to make it a bit darker.

More yellow/pink in the highlights makes the image look brighter. Colour_Grading_Brightened_3-1vp6j1i

Bought the brightness to -5.7 and contrast to -0.2. We made the shadows warmer, midtones greener and highlights pinker, resulting in a warmer and somewhat sharper looking shot.
