Color Pipeline: Revolutionary Paths to Controlling Digital Color
Beautiful, realistic color: cameras capture it, but it’s one of the most complicated and confusing aspects of the digital darkroom. With today’s advanced technology, photographers have entered a maze of endless possibility that is difficult to grasp and control. Luckily, they now have a guide: Ted Dillard, author of RAW Pipeline, has created a roadmap to color consistency that will help photographers create images that fulfill their artistic vision—whether they’re reproducing reality precisely or generating new and imagined worlds of color in their work.
Dillard provides an overview of basic color theory, explains how the computer translates color, and devises several workflows for achieving the highest-quality image with the least amount of hassle. Using the flexibility of RAW files, the advanced color handling of Photoshop, and the power of Smart Objects in Adobe Camera RAW, he takes the reader on the best route from capturing the digital image to creating the fine print.
