A Guide to Colour Management for Photographers

When we start our journey as new photographers there is a lot of learning to be done. Strange new jargon words, rules and principles, equipment and settings to be mastered. Once we crest the peak most of us focus on shooting, and the development of knowledge concerning some of the more intricate, yet peripheral concerns, fall to the wayside. I believe one such example is the subject of colour management.

Express your vision using Flash!

In the On-Location Lighting workshop I teach our students that one of the 7 reasons to use flash is to express your vision. As photographers, light is the notes we use to compose a song. If you only know half the notes the song you create will be pretty limited in tone and originality. If you however know the full range of notes you can create a masterpiece!

The Masks We Are

My idea for this project actually started out as a simple portrait shoot with some masks that I would source, but it slowly evolved as I planned it out. It became a little more personal as I tried to present little pieces of myself in each idea. This then evolved further when I realized through this process, that I often present myself to people in a manner which corresponds to the situation I am in and that I vary rarely show the real me. From this I decided to twist the mask idea a little, still showing these little bits of me, but in each shot, the mask reveals more than it hides.
