Advanced Color Grading Tutorial
In this video tutorial we will use advanced color grading techniques to create a tone mapping effect without the use of any plugins or 3rd party software, we'll only be using Photoshop and what comes with it. We will start out with a photo taken with the aid of an off-the-camera flash and turn it into some sort of "reality show" poster ad. Taking a photo while using an additional fill-light or reflectors helpl us retain a lot of details in the shadows and highlights which make it easier in post-production to really push the color grading.
This tutorial will be really helpful to anyone who wants to give their photos a professional look with richer colors and higher contrasts.
