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.
  • convert b+w with applied B+W color mix in Lightroom.

Second – using the daylight setting for your white balance:

• shoot a photo with overcast – blue light • or with very warm light from sunset.
•Make sure it is a fabulous photo.

Color cast will influence mood of photo.


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