A Behind-the-Scenes Look at Commercial Video Post-Processing

It's a familiar process for photographers

Many photographers spend hours and hours carefully post-processing our images. In fact, just last night, I stayed up way too late staring into my processing software, having completely lost track of time. And while editing video is a very different animal, it certainly does have some similarities to the still editing process.

The video above shows a time lapse as senior colorist Andreas Brueckl touches up a seemingly simple makeup advertisement. It involves a lot of familiar tools like gradients and some common retouching tools. The result is a very natural-looking image that, without this insdier information, wouldn't tip off how much work went into it.
