Capturing accurate and consistent colors has always been a difficult task to achieve. But recent developments in software and hardware, such as X-Rite`s ColorChecker Passport, provide simple and practical tools to gain control of your color workflow. Using any camera capable of shooting RAW files, students photograph under various lighting conditions and learn to create custom camera profiles following a step-by-step real-life scenario using Adobe Lightroom 3.

Students will understand how cameras actually perceive color, see the difference in camera sensors, learn when to use specific color spaces, and clarify the concept of the RAW workflow. Any camera capable of shooting RAW files will work for this class. new prerequisite: Adobe Lightroom for Beginners, Photo I: Digital, or portfolio review.
