The most asked question in photography is “Why don’t my prints match my monitor?” Controlling color in the digital process starts with using the correct profile for your camera and follows through with having your monitor, printer and paper combinations all in a color managed workflow. In this class Lewis will demonstrate how to calibrate you camera, your monitor and you printers to achieve this goal. We will also be covering how to set your computer settings and printer dialog boxes to make sure your images turn out how you want them to without needing to make multiple prints. We will use soft proofing to determine your render intent and to preview how the colors of your images will appear. Once you understand the principles of a color managed workflow you can be in command of how your images appear whether you print them or use a lab to make your prints.
