This week I thought I would look at the arrangement of colour, in reference to taking photos and preparing them for display.
You would of heard of two colour make ups - RGB and CMYK. RGB or 'Red, Green, Blue' are called "Additive Primary Colours". These are generally used in representation of display images, which means how we display our images on television, blogs etc. CMYK or Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black refers to the printing process, meaning how the colours come out on printed form.
If you don't take your photo in natural light or with a flash, you might have a hue of colour that is not the same as the original. You need to then look at changing the image to be more like the original. This is where you will need to apply colour using the RGB process.
Now to my tips...
- Use a flash inside when required, otherwise you will get a different colour hue.
- If using flash inside make sure it's strong enough to cover the image.
- When using natural light outside make sure the sun is behind your back not behind the image, as this will also change the colours.
Now onto the pics of the week.
Have a fantastic week.
