In Chroma: A Photographer’s Guide to Lighting with Color, photographer Nick Fancher helps you elevate your game when it comes to introducing the bold, creative, and intentional use of color into your work. 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, that 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. Whether you’re using a high-powered strobe or a small hotshoe flash, Chroma: A Photographer’s Guide to Lighting with Color is for you. Nick begins with a discussion of color theory, gels, and white balance, then examines how to determine which colors complement your subject matter (whether that’s people or products). He moves on to cover topics such as: Balancing, mixing, and overpowering ambient light with artificial lightLayering colors for unique color combinationsMixing hard and soft light to achieve extremely rich colorLighting detail and textureModifier options, such as ring flash, snoots, barn doors, softboxes, and filtersGobos to control the lightPost-processing for vibrant, powerful colorsHow (and why) to light with color, even when the end goal is a black and white imageIllustrated throughout with innovative and expressive imagery, Chroma also includes behind-the-scenes photos, lighting diagrams, and Lightroom settings so you can follow along from the initial concept through to the final edit.
