Color Theory Lecture with Visual Arts Center – Online
January 8 @ 12:00 am - 2:00 am UTC+0$75
Color theory is a basic principle for all visual arts and it can be used to greatly enhance your photographs. Unlike painters who generally create their colors, landscape and nature photographers basically find their colors. As such, it is important to understand how to really see color, especially what role light plays in the process of capturing, manipulating and printing images. Knowing the physiological basis of color is also critical in understanding why some photographs are more successful than others. The goal of this lecture is to simplify the physics of light, the physiology of vision, and our perceptions of color and light in order to appreciate why we see color the way we do and how to use that knowledge to improve our photography. While this workshop is designed for photographers, the principles discussed will benefit artists who work with color in any media.
