What’s the best resource (i.e. video series, book, whatever) to become proficient at color grading video (using Premiere Pro)?
I’m interested in two things:
#1) Creating high-level, professional-looking color grades and the ability to create the “feel” I want just by changing the colors.
#2) Gaining a workflow that allows for QUICK color grading for things like daily vlogs where I’d like decent color grading, but super high-level grading is not necessary. Example: Iz Harris ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNdcwYrHD8s )
I’ve been making YouTube videos for about a year and understand the absolute basics. I shoot with a Panasonic GH5, edit with Premiere, and I’m only planning on posting to YouTube, in the near future anyways. I only kind of understand the Lumetri Scopes stuff. I’m not shooting LOG because I watched a tutorial where the guy convinced me that it’s not necessary for someone like me. I have been experimenting with a flat color profile in camera (turning saturation, contrast, sharpness to zero), but maybe that’s not even necessary to achieve #2 (see above).
Any recommendations greatly appreciated!
