I recently picked up a new lut pack from White in Revery. They’re filmmakers based in Colorado. Their lut pack creates muted/desaturated greens, a slightly contrasted image, and fantastic looking skin tones. I’d say it’s slightly warm without going overboard.
My workflow for color correction/grading looks like this:
- Adjust exposure and white balance first using Color Finale inside FCPX. In the images below, I wanted to maintain the sky, but also bring back the skintones or midtones. I brought highlights down with shadows and midtones going up.
- Add a conversion lut for Cine4 S-Gamut3 Cine to bring it back to normal REC.709 colorspace.
- Add creative lut and adjust intensity.
