Stealth 'Shop, The Virgin Histogram
dekePod Episode 002: In this second regular episode of dekePod, I pass along a technique of such magnitude, it will blow your mind. Because inasmuch as I every so often allude to another anatomical detail, the brain is what this video is all about. Not the "shorty" brain, but the "tally" brain. All the way upstairs, with the rotating bar and the fine dining. Here's the official marketing description:
Imagine yourself walking down a lovely San Francisco street, whistling a merry tune, only to be confronted by the sudden appearance of a menacing robot packing a shockingly massive and entirely unnecessary . . . ray gun, of sorts. What would you do? If you were Deke, you'd snap a picture and correct its colors. And not in any standard way, either, but in a way that permits you to apply radical color adjustments while leaving a virgin-like histogram in your wake.
