Night-time and low-light scenes are often beautifully atmospheric, but without the proper equipment, they can register on camera as muddy and lackluster. Fortunately, there are a ton of highly effective color-grading LUTs you can apply in post-production to achieve the exact tone and vibrancy you’re after both quickly and inexpensively. In this article, we highlight some of our favorite night and low-light style preset packs for videos available from Envato Elements and Envato Market.
