How is to get this kind of look

Ladies and gentlemen, do you have idea about the way of getting this kind of look ?


It feels like some desaturation and move to blueish-silverish without shitty greens and still with kind of skin tone.

Do you have kind of clue of getting it and of tools needed? I work with da vinci resolve

Thank you!!


This is more dependent on location and wardrobe and props than camera or grading. Keeping all those elements within the color scheme of desaturated blue to desaturated beige.

Yes, as Indie Guy mentioned you'll want to control the set design, wardrobe etc to match the colors you're going for. Also once you get into your grading suite (Davinci Resolve) you are right, it's going to be an overall desaturation and I'd most likely use (the hue vs. saturation curve to selectively take your reds down further. I'm guessing the skin tones would still have too much red in them, so I'd take them down a bit and push blue into your shadows to get the desired look. Of course lots of other factors would come into play regarding how you shot it, on what camera, whether you nailed white balance etc etc. But essentially it's a desaturated image with the art direction setup for the look and blue added into the shadows. Also the blacks and whites seem fairly clean (not tinted) so I would use the luminance vs. saturation curve to dip your blacks back to black and dip your extreme whites back to pure white (even though the whites before pure white appear to be slightly beige/yellow I believe that pure white is still pure white here.

Thank you!
In the way of production design you supported some thoughts I had and was not sure about, and in grading - those adjustments you mention - are very true, thank you.
Maybe you can help me to understand how do they get this kind of look, especially green - https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Ui8pZWA3m-Z9u15nxJ5UPHp3KiuE23hG/view?u...
