Video has become a part of daily life for many photographers. For some, it’s because we’ve expanded our services for clients. For others, it’s simply for our own self promotion. Tips and tricks, tutorials or behind the scenes videos for YouTube & Facebook. One of the biggest problems many photographers starting out with video face is learning a whole new set of software – and the extra cost of said software.
Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve, an industry standard for colour grading, has recently started to add editing capabilities. While there are $30K and $1K options of the software available, there’s also a completely free version. Between expanded capability, and a super low price tag, it’s no wonder it’s become such a popular tool. But it can be a complex beast to get to grips with. In this video from Learn Color Grading, we’re taken on a 30 minute whirlwind tour of Resolve’s UI, and how it all works.
