How to Whiten Teeth in Video Using Premiere Pro

Whitening a subject's teeth is one of the most common adjustments a photographer has to make to images, and similarly, you may have to do the same thing for video work. This great video tutorial will show you how to use Premiere Pro to whiten your subject's teeth.

Coming to you from Josh Olufemii, this excellent video tutorial will show you how to whiten a subject's teeth using Premiere Pro. Especially as video resolutions push higher and higher, videographers may have to pay more attention to smaller facial details that were once just the concern of stills photographers. Thankfully, it is not particularly difficult to whiten a subject's teeth in Premiere Pro; in fact, it is quite similar to working Photoshop. You will use a hue/saturation adjustment layer to target the specific colors on your subject's teeth, then mask around their mouth to only affect that area. It's a quick and easy way to improve your work. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Olufemii.
