It may come as a surprise to some, but video cameras are not nearly as perceptive as your eyes. That means if the white balance isn’t perfect, your face won’t look quite human.
The art of fixing all that is called Color Correction, and for years it struck fear into my heart because I had not one idea of how to go about it. I felt like it would be a major operation.
Well, today I’d like to share a simple outpatient procedure that will make all your videos look more human.
From now on I’m going to call this Color Restoration, because your face doesn’t need correction. It just needs more accurate interpretation.
Once you’ve watched the video, to find your personal Color Restoration numbers, check out the Larry Jordan article.
