In this video from Peter McKinnon, we get a look at a pretty basic workflow of creating a cinematic look in Adobe Premiere Pro. Across the series of color grading tutorials in this video, he pretty much lives in the Basic Correction panel of Premiere Pro instead of getting into the three-way color wheels, which we commonly see used for emphasizing color in highlights and shadows.
While not the most complex grading method, I think it’s a great starting point for dipping your toes into color grading and getting good results. Of course, it all starts with good footage, which you need to get in-camera first.
