As a self taught user of Davinci Resolve, this book has answered so many questions and saved hours of experimentation as it clearly lays out not just the techniques of grading but the theory and rationale behind the decisions you make in the grade. It also comes with footage for you to work with and is written in a fluid and engaging style. If you are even half interested in grading then I'd recommend this as a must have.

I'm only up to page 150 or so and despite a few printing issues and the odd typo it's a great book! I knew very little about grading and I'm steadily learning more and more each day. I've heard of this book being referred to as "The bible of colour correction" and they're not wrong!

This book is the go to guide on colour correcting for good reason. Alexis Van Hurkman is thorough in his approach, meaning even the most clueless of newbies (such as myself) will become adept at colour correcting by the time they have finished reading the book and doing the exercises included with it. As an indie filmmaker, this book is a must, as a read and a download of the free Davinci Resolve will dramatically shrink your post production costs, as this book will equip you with the necessary skills to do your own correcting and grading. What is most valuable are the strategies that Van Hurkman outlines and walks you through, with an example, to practically deal with common issues you will find in the images you come to correct/grade. These are highly detailed and effective, and as such, it is a good idea to keep this book at arms length from your desk when working. I couldn't recommend this book more highly. It really is a one book wonder on the art of colour correction.

not only did i learn a lot but i had a good time while doing it, written in a very casual way that doesn't treat you like an idiot but is also very explanatory.
