I really rate this book highly and like it a lot. Colour correction, or "grading," can be a very hard topic to get to grips with. Not so much because it is a particularly hard topic but rather because the authors of all the other books I have read make it complicated. They are also pretty dreadful authors, possibly because their realm is visual rather than literary. Steve Hullfish is a really good writer and a good trainer too.
I am very pleased with the book: Steve Hullfish's writing is clear and the first four chapters tell you everything you need to know to get started. The rest of the book you can delve back into after you have had a go. It is not cheap but it is good value.
I will buy more books by Steve Hullfish and that is as good a recommendation as I can give.
I bought this book along with Hullfish's 'colour correction for video' tips and tricks book. Both books make fantastic reading and include an easy to understand step by step dvd to help illustrate examples from the book. My only gripe here is the main cost of the software used by the Author runs into several thousands of pounds. I use the latest Sony Vegas Studio but would still find Hullfish's advice useful to have, as a handy reference guide. Top marks for this one.
