Hello! Just found this forum so please go easy if I'm breaking any rules. Please let me know if there's a better place to put this type of post.
Often I'm a lone filmmaker so I can make simple mistakes sometimes, it's terrible. This time I didn't have a lens hood and went with the shot anyway and yikes this clip is underexposed. It's for a music video for a friend and I really want the visuals to match how talented my friend is.
Here's the underexposed clip:
And here's what the rest of the footage looks like:
It looks like the underexposed shot is too stylized. I thought it'd help to not have the blacks crushed, but I tried raising the midtones, but it makes it look even more stylized/washed out. I can send any screenshots to show what I mean if it helps. Does anyone have any advice on how to fix this?
