Steve Hullfish posted these links to free Apple Color video tutorials the ColorList late last week. Click the images for a link to the video.
These preview videos are very, very good. Essentially a dream teaching combo of master colorist and Color guru Bob Sliga and master workflow documentarian and writer Steve Hullfish, these preview videos are equally informative and accesible on a level that I’ve not seen produced before. Excellent control of UI monitoring with some creative editing that I haven’t seen used in other video tutorials. Solid and well-timed leading questions of Hullfish to Sliga to keep the instruction on track. Explanation by Sliga down to the Finder level of what the heck is going on with Apple Color. And an overall approach to understanding not just the what-can-Color-do questions but, IMHO more importantly, the how and why questions as well.
This series appears to be the definitive guide to learning and accessing Apple Color’s immensely powerful tools.
These videos are a good follow up to the tutorials Sliga includes in his Scone Looks which you can purchase here. I bought them. The Scone Looks are both an incredible value and insightful learning tool. I use them as a guide to building my own custom grades.
And before many learning resources about Color were available, Steve Hullfish published this book. It was my dedicated bathroom reading for a solid month, so you definitely want to get your own copy and not borrow mine.
