Join Jim Krause for an in-depth discussion in this video Altering a photo's hues, part of Color for Design and Art.
- Once digital cameras arrived on the scene,…and once I could stop worry about wasting film,…I started taking pictures, and I mean a lot of pictures.…And it wasn't long before I started shooting pretty much…all the photos for my layouts and for my books.…And then clients started asking…if I'd take pictures for them.…And the next thing you know,…I've written five books on digital photography.…And I mention all this to you just to say yes,…I'm a designer, and I usually talk about design,…but given my experiences with cameras,…I'm going to claim that what I have to say about photography…might also be worth a listen.…
Now I'd love to talk about…photography and cameras all day long,…but I'm going to limit myself here…to a certain color related aspect of photography.…What I want you to know right up front is that…above all, the colors your camera gives you…when you snap a photo,…they're rarely the ideal colors for that image.…Adjustments and modifications,…they almost always need to be made…to give images the clarity…
Primarily aimed at designers and illustrators, the course leans heavily toward digital tools such as Photoshop and Illustrator, but concludes with some challenges using real-world media (inks and paints!), so members can get a solid understanding of mixing colors and what tools and combinations work best.
