Getting color consistency from your eye, to your camera, to your computer can be a real pain in the butt. Especially if you still haven't settled into a reliable, regular workflow. Color calibrating your monitor once a month and taking reference images with a gray card are invaluable when it comes to getting consistent color. If you are still struggling with getting your image colors to look right, then Freelance Photographer Gavin Hoey has the video for you. Watch as Gavin walks through a step-by-step process on how to achieve consistent color.
Gavin has been shooting, writing, and offering up advice on all things photographic since 2001. He also writes a “How To” column for one of the best selling photography magazines in the UK, Digital Photo Magazine. After winning Adobe’s Next Photoshop Evangelist competition in 2010, he started teaching sessions on Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom and Photoshop Elements in the UK, Europe, and the U.S. Now he's teamed up with Adorama to continue sharing his photographic know how. It's safe to say, Gavin knows his stuff and you can make things a lot easier on yourself if you adopt some of the good habits he shares in this video.
