Nuke Grading Essentials for Photographers and Artists

If you want to learn more about the basics of color correction in Nuke, or just in general, then this is a great dive.  Hugo Guerra (Hugo’s Desk) is an industry veteran and a VFX Creative Director at Fire Without Smoke, and his latest tutorial opens up a new set of possibilities using the Foundry’s Nuke for color grading.

Even though Nuke is considered to be a high end compositor and visual effects tool, it can be used for effective color correction or grading for artists and photographers alike. Guerra takes us through some of the most basic (yet very important) grading and color correction concepts that include highlights, mid-tones, shadows, primary and secondary color correction. Best of all, he explains the concepts in Nuke, Lightroom and Da Vinci.
