I take a look at the differences between the 3-Way Color Corrector built into FCP and Magic Bullet Looks especially when it comes to color correcting or "grading" footage from an HDSLR that was purposely shot with without a lot of processing in the camera.
There is also mention of some particular things I look out for when working with African American skin tones.
This footage was shot with the Canon 7D. I briefly mention that I've set up the camera to improve the ability to correct it in post. I used Tyler Ginter's setup instructions.
