But don't think that this book is JUST for industry pros. If anything, this is a great book for amateur and intermediate media creators because it essentially allows you to skip a few steps and come out ahead. Not that you don't have to put the work in, but like i said, i put years into tutorials, reading articles, and playing with grading applications. It wasn't until this book that i started to know exactly where to start with my images, and start to make them look better and more balanced than ever before. Even if you're shooting with a Canon DSLR, GH4, Sony Mirrorless, this book is invaluable. It explains things in a way that is cross-program. If you work with Resolve, Adobe, Apple, Avid, whatever... everything in this book is equally applicable. Do yourself a favor and read this, then read it again.
I also recommend Alexis Van Hurkman's master classes online through RippleTraining, in which he goes into greater depth at a hands-on approach, but also offers new features in Resolve 14 as well as the chance to sit down with him through working one of his color correction and color grading of a real short film -- amazing watching him work and learning hands-on as well to accompany this text. Definitely buy it, I got mine used for a great price.
That said, I wish that the content from the author's companion "Look Book" was included with this one. I gladly would have paid more for one complete volume. This book covers the fundamentals, but the companion book covers how to turn base footage into more stylized imagery, such as various "film looks".
