Eliminating Color Correction for Talking Portrait Video Files

Most photographers struggle with post-processing color correction on their video files that feature portrait style subjects.  Now that we are using video to make talking portraiture eProducts, it’s more important that ever to be able to reduce or eliminate video file corrections. No problem.

As a commercial shooter that began an illustrious career shooting transparency films, I will show you the smarter, faster way to create video portraiture using simple tools and an even simpler process. Start by practicing how to achieve a video shot at your cameras NRP {Neutral Rendering Point} and allow the camera to record footage free of green or magenta bias, then clear of warm or cool color temperature shifts any time, anywhere.

In this DiscoverMirrorless vlog post, as the Hybrid Coach of the DiscoverMirrorless team, I want to show you how to “hit your NRP” using any grey card, grey/white/black card and issues an assignment to his group of Hybrid Heroes {you too are welcome to join in!} to produce a talking portrait file that has zero post processing correction and looks as clean as this one. It’s easier than you think.
