    Leica Movie Look?

    I had a street shoot outing yesterday and came up with a few pictures that was begging for some color treatment. So, I wrote a little article about color correction in photos for the movie look to enhance drama and story telling.
    You can see the article here:

    I'm just curious what's everyone's thought on this? How much color correction is too much? Does it detract from the Leica Look or enhance it?

    Nice images. Love the clarity and slight desat look. Overall, I feel that they add to the look and complement the clarity of the lenses that you chose for this assignment. Great stuff...

    The different color corrections told me different stories about the pictures. Nice work and article.

    To prove the theory further, can you apply different colors to one same photo and have it convey different stories?

    I've been fooling around with simulating anamorphic flare with filters.. will hopefully have some usable results soon

    Great challenge! Let me see if I can do something with one of the picture to give it a different feel.

    I'm not familiar with the simulating anamorphic flare with filters. Post up some pics when you're done, I'm sure there are a lot more seasoned video colorist that can produce amazing results!

    Ok, I finally got around to play with the color a bit. This time around, I applied the Matrix Reloaded greenish hue to all 4 pictures. I probably half-assed this attempt versus my original rendition. Once again, feedback good or bad welcome!!
