Rockynook Book Chroma: A Photographer's Guide to Lighting with Color by Nick Fancher

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. In Chroma: A Photographer’s Guide to Lighting with Color by photographer Nick Fancher, helps you elevate your game when it comes to introducing the bold, creative, and intentional use of color into your work.

Covers Everything About Lighting

Whether you’re using a high-powered strobe or a small hotshoe flash, Chroma is for you. Nick begins with a discussion of color theory, gels, and white balance, and then examines how to determine which colors complement your subject matter (whether that’s people or products). Topics covered in this book are use of ambient lighting with artificial lights, layering colors for unique color combinations, mixing hard and soft lights, lighting detail and texture, Gobos to control the light, post-processing for vibrant, powerful colors and more.

Expressive Imagery to Support Content

Illustrated 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.
