Find out what steps are considered primary color correction.
Primary color correction is the process of manipulating your entire image to get the luma and chroma to look natural in your shot. Now, when we get right down to it, there may be a time when we’re making an adjustment that technically isn’t changing every pixel, but the idea is that we’re not trying to isolate a specific area. These primary corrections fall into two categories. Luma and Chroma. Luma is typically the The first step. Primary Luma corrections are used to achieve the desired contrast ratio of a shot by adjusting the shadows, midtones, and highlights, without regard to chroma. The second step is primary chroma corrections, which are used to fix undesirable color issues in a shot, such as bad white balance. The real goal here is to get your shots looking their best, while keeping natural shadows, midtones, highlights, and color. There’s always room to tweak your images later for artistic effect.
