Colour Management Made Easy | Capturing Correct Colours

Ever wondered why the colours you see aren't the same as they appear on your finished images? Does shooting in multiple lighting conditions mean that you have the same models appearing sun-tanned in some shots and pale and pasty in others? In this free webinar Richard West will take you through how to create a colour managed photographic workflow. Starting with how to make sure you capture 'true' colours with your cameras, he'll explain how to take control of your colour accuracy through retouching to final output, be that print, web or apps.

The session, exclusively for the Societies members, will include a host of tips and tricks and end with a chance for you to ask your questions on how to optimise your workflow which can be covered at the end of the session.

All attendees will qualify for exclusive discounts.

Date: Tuesday, September 9th 2014
Time: 7.00 pm (BST)
