With traditional color photography the accurate reproduction of photographs was to great extent controlled by the film manufacturer and the processing laboratory. With the advent of digital photography the reproduction of color is extremely more complex and the accurate reproduction of color photographs is now largely the responsibility of the photographer. This course will remove the mystique surrounding how to make beautiful color photographs using digital cameras, computers and printers. You will learn basic color theory, and the physiology and perception of color. The principals of digital color management and workflow will be discussed. Students will learn how to set up their cameras for optimum color reproduction and how to calibrate a digital imaging system. Students will produce full color photographs from their own cameras using state of the art equipment. Required: Knowledge of basic computer operation, basic Photoshop skills, a digital camera, and USB connection from your camera to computer or flash memory card. (Class size limited to 12 students). A $10 fee payable to the instructor at the first class session for the text/handouts required for the class is required.
