CANON 4 Ways To Capture Colours More Accurately
In Photography Instructions

  • Capturing accurate colours is fundamental to improving the quality of your images, especially in commercial photography. Here are four ways you can strive for precision!

Shooting In Raw

When turning on your camera for the first time to take a picture, the images will be saved in a JPEG file. To have more control over the colours captured, remember to save your files in RAW mode.

Set the Correct White Balance

The various types of light we encounter all have different colour temperatures (measured in Kelvin). It is why the same colour seems to appear differently under multiple lighting conditions. Here’s where White Balance comes to the rescue!

Calibrated Monitor Screens

A display calibration tool can detect inaccuracies on your monitor and its accompanying software can help to correct these errors. This helps to display the most accurate tones on your display and give you the best chance to edit the image. However, it may look a little different still on an uncalibrated display such as a mobile phone screen, but it would be as accurate as possible.

Shooting with a Grey Card

Lightweight and inexpensive, a grey card is a handy item to have in your photography kit!
