Sony a7 III, Sony FE 20mm f/1.8, S-log2, ISO 800, ~ f/3.2. Steps four and five (Hue/Saturation Curves) were done in the same tab.

1. Straight out of camera.
2. Leeming LUT ‘Athena’.
3. Inverse Log Curve
4. Color Mask (inside): qualified skin tones (Hue v. Hue), reduced luminance in face (Hue v. Luma).
5. Color Mask (outside): reduced saturation in green wall and blue of shirt (Hue v. Sat), reduced saturation in shadows (Luma v. Sat).
6. Vignette.
7. Finished look.

And finally, I added RocketStock LUT ‘Lucky’, boosted contrast, increased the vignette, made a color mask and corrected skin tones.
