Ive been told by colorists to look at the screen and see what seems off or different from normal, but, aside from really obvious teal-orange look, I cant quite manage. Everything looks normal or like it could have been done on set. Are there any tips any of you could share?
Watch non-Orange/Cyan movies
Like everything else in this industry it takes training, and even then it's relative interpretation.
I think Wes Anderson uses very good and meaningful palettes.
I can't think of any films offhand, but there are some out there that discuss this sort of thing in the commentary.
The best training I had to observe meaningfulness in color was actually in literature, specifically poetry.
