Using Chip Charts to Color Correct

I was a bit surprised at how good the color looked straight out of the camera. The signs were exactly the colors they should have been. I was not expecting that because I’ve had to correct the colors on previous shoots with the camera. Sorry it was not as dramatic as I planned but the basic technique is sound. You can also adjust luminance, using the sliders underneath the color wheels, and overall image saturation using the slider at the bottom of the color corrector window.

Vortex Media Warm Cards.  The “Complete” set gets you large and small cards. The smaller cards fit nicely in a HDSLR bag.

Excellent description on the Prolost Blog on how to “flatten” your Canon HDSLR image. There’s also a good explanation of memory colors.
