Understanding Color and Balancing Tones

Does the lighting take focus away from the subject? Are your eyes immediately drawn to something else? You become good at Photoshop through an understanding of color and being able to balance the tones. You need to introduce proper perspective, with a creative eye. You must be aware of the details, but not let yourself become bogged down in them.

Some topics include:

  • Reading a Histogram
  • Numbers and the Info Palette

  • Color, Mood and Ambience
  • Creating Depth with Color
  • Primary Tone Corrections
