I took some test shots around my neighborhood to practice the filmic workflow. Also I wanted to see how well I could match the out-of-camera JPG. I have to say that I was able to get a better result than camera JPG. Now that I am scrutinizing, it’s obvious camera puts a cool tone on the scene, and does and boosts greens and reds substantially.
I attempted to emulate this just for the sake of trying and ran into a road block. When trying to create a parametric mask to select all of the green leaves, I noticed that darktable thought they were red or magenta (probably brown). This blows my mind since the leaves are obviously green on the screen and in real life. It also makes masking them difficult. Have any of you had experience with this issue?
Thanks for your help everyone!
