Using SpeedLooks in Photoshop and Lightroom

Nov 18, 2020

Lookup tables (LUT's) can make your photos look amazing by simply applying quick and easy edits to them with the press of a button. Now you can use all of your SpeedLooks in Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. This is great for when you want to achieve a unique color look or want to match the look of your video to still photographs. Using LUTs in Lightroom allows you to create unique profiles and apply them to any photo for color consistency.

Unfortunately, Adobe Lightroom doesn’t support LUTs right out of the box - but don't fret, this video will show you how to bring your LUTs into Lightroom through Photoshop's Camera RAW and start using them easily. One thing to note is that this only works with Lightroom Classic and not Lightroom CC.

One Trick for Better Color Grading in Premiere Pro

Nov 12, 2020

Color grading is a profession in and of itself, which means the technical know-how, the theory, and the nuance, all run very deep indeed. However, some methods are more powerful and useful than others, and this one particular tool could greatly impact your work.

Color grading in photography is as powerful as it is addictive, often having a transformative effect on the overall work. Color grading video is markedly trickier. The key elements are moving and if you're looking to localize your color alteration, you'll either have to settle for a holistic change, or you will need to put in some extra effort.

In this video, Aidin Robbins, a filmmaker and great colorist, goes through a tool within Adobe Premiere Pro CC which he leans on for color. The tool in question is HSL Secondary and it can seem a little intimidating at first glance. Then, when you add in Lumetri scopes, you could be forgiven for giving up before you start. It is deceptively straightforward though, and incredibly powerful for controlling colors in your video, as well as its overall look.

See how one simple trick can lead to better color grading in Adobe Premiere Pro.
