Color grading is a great way to change the mood of your images, and there is more than one way to do it. But other than doing it from scratch, you can copy the color grading of an image you particularly like, and add the same mood to your shots. In this video, Ted Forbes will teach you two simple methods for copying the color grade from one image to another, and you can apply it to any photo you like.
Sometimes, it’s not so easy to decide whether a photo should be in color or black and white, especially if you’re still new to photography. So, how do you know whether you should leave it in color or convert it to black and white before delivering the photo to a client? In this video from Denae & Andrew, you’ll hear some thoughts and tips that could help you make a decision.
I’m not a fan of western superhero franchises.
Yes I fully appreciate that I’m in the minority here and it’s certainly not my intention to turn you away in the first sentence, but rather to solidify the fact that this exploration of colour in cinema does not come from a fanboy solely driven by vapid, one dimensional characters and napkin narratives, but rather pure adoration of a masterwork in cinematography.
This is an interesting look at the world in which we live. As Principle Digital Imaging Evangelist at Adobe, Julieanne Kost has travelled most of the known world. And during her travels, she’s shot many photographs of the places she’s had the opportunity to visit. While recently looking through the images, she started to notice a pattern in the images she’d chosen to shoot. That pattern was colour.
If you want to add both contrast and a punch of color to your photos Unmesh Dinda of PiXimperfect shows you a technique you might want to try out. In this video, he teaches you how to use Color Burn and Color Dodge blending modes together to quickly boost contrast and color at the same time.
Colour science is a term often thrown around these days, but what does it actually mean? Well, in this context, and one very simplified explanation, it’s how your camera “sees” and processes the colour hitting the sensor, ultimately turning it into the final image it saves out to your memory card.
But what does that mean to the end user? And does it really even matter? In his usual non-stop info-packed way, Gerald Undone deep dives into the topic of colour science in this 13-minute video.
There are plenty of ways to enhance colors in Photoshop. Nathaniel Dodson of Tutvid shares five tips that will help you make the colors more prominent, or in other words – make them “pop”. The tips are different and you can use them for various types of photos, no matter if you work on portraits, landscapes or some other kind of images.
Have you ever wondered about the logic behind HEX color codes? Nathaniel Dodson of tutvid has created a great video to help you make sense of those seemingly illogical strings of letters and numbers.
The video makes HEX code look simple, and you don’t need to be a math genius to understand it. Even I was able to make sense of the digits, and I’m not good at math at all. When you figure out the pattern, you’ll be able to guess the color only by “reading” its HEX code.
What I’m going to do is I’m going to show you how to match the colors between backgrounds and objects once you’ve cut them out and combined the different photos or otherwise known as compositing.
So what I’ve done here is I’ve grabbed some photographs from Adobe Stock. So I grabbed the photograph here of the woman and then I’ve grabbed two different backgrounds because I’m going to show you two different scenarios with two different techniques. So you can find those, I’m going to link to those in the description so you can go to Adobe Stock, grab those photos and follow along.
