Learning to Color Correct as a DP

DP Bruce Logan (Tron, Airplane) writes on Zacuto about how he went about teaching himself color correction from the standpoint of a cinematographer.

He writes, “With all my experience of lighting and balancing front and rear projection plates to foreground lighting, I have spent years looking through viewfinders, and more recently production monitors, asking myself, ‘What wrong with this picture?’ So in short, my entire philosophy of lighting and coloring is reduced to asking myself, ‘What’s wrong with this picture?’ Then twiddling the knobs until there is no longer anything wrong with it. 9 times out of 10, it’s a great looking image.”
