We’re big fans of Alexis Van Hurkman and his fantastic introduction to the art of color grading - The Color Correction Handbook - has a special place on our bookshelf. So we were thrilled when we heard that Alexis would be writing a new SpeedGrade book for our favorite publisher, Peachpit Press.
Adobe SpeedGrade: Getting Started guides the reader through the powerful SpeedGrade toolset, but does much more than just telling you which buttons to press. Every section, indeed every exercise, provides new insights into the colorist’s art and the real-world business of working with clients. Best of all, it’s a great read!
Adobe SpeedGrade Getting Started by Alexis Van Hurkman is available as an eBook for Kindle and other eReader applications and devices. Word to the wise: read this book on a device with a color screen. I read it on my Kobo eReader app on my iPad and it looks fantastic. I have come to really like having How-To books on an eDevice: bookmarking and notes make it a snap to go back to sections I want to review.
