Professional Color Correction with Premiere Pro

Professional Color Correction with Premiere Pro

By Richard Harrington | September 14, 2008

An article I wrote for Layers Magazine on Color Correcting with Premiere Pro has been released for free to their website.Here's an excerpt:-----------------------------Some of the most important effects you'll find in your Premiere Pro toolbox are those for color correction. Let's face it, shooting perfect video can be tough: conditions change, time can be crunched, and there's never enough light-give up, right? Nope, fix it in post.

Camera Support Gives Your Wrist a Break

Camera Support Gives Your Wrist a Break

Hoodman releases a new support unit for hand-held shooters

By Richard Harrington | September 08, 2008

While at Photoshop World, I stopped by the Hoodman booth to check out new products. One in particular caught my eye. The WristShot Camcorder Support System takes the weight of the camera and transfers it to your forearm.I tried a unit out and bought one... its a nice way to get stability and literally take a load off the wrist. The unit is designed to work with cameras up to 10 pounds. What's also nice is that the unity includes a tripod adapter mount making it easy to switch from your standard tripod to the WristShot unit.We did a video interview on the product and will have it up shortly. For now, check out the company's website. The unit retails for $199. Read More

NAB Conference Raises White Flag

NAB Conference Raises White Flag

Homepage animation has some talking.

By Richard Harrington | August 23, 2008

Visitors to the NAB 2009 website are greeted with an animation of a raised white flag... typically seen as a sign of surrender. This is sending the wrong message. The conference is going strong and continues to evolve. I've attended and spoken at the conference for the last five years. Despite some high profile drop-outs (like Avid and Apple) in 2008 the show still boasted more than 72,000 attendees. I found it as relevant as ever and enjoyed informative presentations, looked at great products, networked like crazy, and managed to have some fun in there too. I believe in NAB, last year I brought 5 employees with me. Read More
