    I made this as a quick teaser for a longer video i'm putting together.. Shot with a P3A, Osmo, and iPhone.
    Looking for any constructive criticism, particularly around the coloring but will listen to any other tips. I shoot in D-LOG and I am really struggling with my color correction.

    To me, skin colour is little reddish. And shadows are to dark. You need to flatten it more in start, and less push in post. Maybe this will help with you with your D log settings:

    Thank you.
    I am using those settings on both the P3A and the Osmo.. I will try keeping it flatter, but what exactly do you mean by "less push" ?

    When you do color correction, use vectroscope for control, keep everything between 10-90 (0 is apsolute black, 100 is apsolute white-burnout) don't go below and above these values. Blacks are loosing detail fast. At 10 IRE Blacks still have detail.
    hope that helped ;)

    Be careful with polarizing filter... your filter angle isn't set well. As a result, you have unequally sky.

    Uneven correcting of the sky, during the primary color correction, could couse this effect. Vignette or else...if it's possible, check the original clip.
