Weekly +harry durgin goodness!
 
http://weeklyedit.com/thinking-differently/
Trying to look at your images in a new way? We find ourselves perfecting a work-flow, a way of approaching images that is empowering and streamlines the editing process -- but is that always the best plan? In this week's episode we deliberately take a different path in processing.
In the first edit, we work on the L channel separately, then apply it to the original image in two different ways: one in Darktable, and then another in the GIMP. Thank you, Elias, for your RAW contribution and the inspiration it provides.
In the second edit, we are as interested in reducing some details as in enhancing others. It's all a matter of perspective and choice. Thank you, Aleksandr, for this RAW contribution, and the taste of winter it brings.
This video builds on knowledge from previous videos, running full-tilt through tools and methods to achieve the edit. For fuller explanations, visit http://weeklyedit.com/ and scroll down to Topics Discussed or Modules Used on the right-hand bar. Click on any of these, and we assemble a complete playlist of every instance for quick review right there on the site.
We include links to download the RAW files so you can play along, and a full downloadable transcript of the show at the website.
Trying to look at your images in a new way? This week we step outside our usual Darktable workflow to approach two edits from different angles. Separating the L Channel in the first gives us a whole new view, and in the second, we define our bold elements first.

If you're doing any Video editing with +Blender, especially with drone footage, then you really need to get the excellent ColorMaster add-on. The latest version includes the Filmic LUTs as well as allowing for super easy installation of custom LUTs.

Check it out.
ColorMaster is the only full workflow for color management inside of Blender and adds a convenient image-based GUI to Blender's color management tools and over 71 more looks. It allows you to import your own looks and use controls such as view transform, exposure, gamma, and curves.
