Chroma: Studio in Color (THU)

Level: Lighting - Intermediate

Learning to work with light is an important milestone in every photographer’s career, and the ability to craft light to fit your vision for an image is a skill that cannot be overrated. Most often, “crafting” of light is spoken of in terms of the quality and quantity of light. But there is an important, third component of light that heavily influences the final look of the image: the color of light. In this workshop, photographer Nick Fancher helps you elevate your game when it comes to introducing the bold, creative, and intentional use of color into your work.


Nick will begin with a discussion of color theory, gels, and white balance, then examine how to determine which colors complement your subject matter. He covers topics such as:


• Balancing, mixing, and overpowering ambient light with artificial light

• Layering colors for unique color combinations

• Mixing hard and soft light to achieve extremely rich color

• Lighting detail and texture

• Modifier options, such as ring flash, snoots, barn doors, gobos, softboxes, and even using projectors

• Post-processing for vibrant, powerful colors

• How (and why) to light with color, even when the end goal is a black and white image
