Thank you so much for taking the time to explain the workflow, Pierre. Much appreciated.
All in all, it seems I can keep my current approach which is, doing the first adjustments with Filmic and then take care of the saturation with other modules, and I usually resort to Color Balance for this.
I’m still learning how to use Filmic and, although I’m not there yet, I’m more happy with the results than with my previous workflow.
One thing I’m still struggling with and having a hard time understanding is why, after I applied Filmic, the local contrast looks more aggressive than if I use the Base Curve.
When I use the latter, I can push the local contrast (usually Detail and a little of Midtone) quite a bit. With Filmic, even if I balanced the image in order to get a flat profile (or sort of), a touch of local contrast usually ends up darkening the shadows quite significantly. In fact, I need to go back and tweak the settings in Filmic again in order to avoid pure blacks (which I’m not a big fan of).
Anyway, thanks again for this great module, I feel I have a lot to learn but also a lot to experiment with and have fun!
