This episode was another fun one! The training shots of Flavor Flav and Donnivin Jordan outside called for a high contrast feel. It needed to feel hot, hostile, and epic. One of the ways I accomplish this kind of look is by dialing in a global selection over the whole frame to grab a feathered off portion of just the very bottom of the shadows and another node dialed to just the top of the highlights to punch up the separation and contrast. It allows you to relight the image to excentuate depth and detail. Its a unique look that owes itself to the powerful DaVinci platform. Haven't had this much control since working with stills in Photoshop.
