It's always frustrating as a photographer to spend time shooting, editing, and printing an image only to see different results throughout various steps of your workflow.
That's why it's important for any professional photographer to create consistently accurate color between all their devices throughout every stage of a project, from shooting the image to the final print. The easiest way to do this is by choosing a system that will allow you to calibrate color on your camera, monitor, printer, projector, scanner, and even your ios device to match colors every time. Today, we'll be showing you how to create this consistency using the i1Studio by X-rite.
Although this video starts with the proper color calibrations steps on set, we don't explain the setup behind our shot. If you'd like to see those details, check out how we built our set with Erica here:
By using the color checker on set, creating a correct camera and lens profile for Lightroom, and calibrating our monitor, we were able to edit our image to show the exact colors that we saw on set. Using the other calibration options of the i1Studio allowed us to maintain the same consistent color on our final print. Furthermore, if we had had other devices that we wanted to show our images on, such as a scanner or an iPad, we could have calibrated those as well. Overall, we found the i1Studio to be a fantastic tool for maintaining correct color calibration through a photographers entire workflow.
