If you really want to learn about color correction, I strongly recommend Steve Hullfish’s “The Art and Technique of Digital Color Correction”

(Disclaimer: Purchasing the book from the link above will make me filthy rich. If you don’t want to make me go all bourgeois on you, buy the book somewhere else. But buy it.)
