Assignment 7: Introduction to color


Intro to Shooting Color and Toning Black & White Images With Filters


Shoot a color photograph with strong and contrasting color and process that image three ways:

  • tone with correct color balance and saturation – neutral colors like white or gray should not have a color cast.
  • convert to well toned black and white image – use grade 2 b+w conversion in Aperture.
  • convert b+w with applied color filter in Aperture.

Second – using the daylight setting for your white balance:

• shoot a photo with overcast – blue light • or with very warm light from sunset.

Color cast will influence mood of photo.


Deliverables: shoot two pictures – deliver four processed images – that are appropriately tagged and toned.
