“Understanding Color” by Bryan F. Peterson

Are you having trouble ‘seeing’ COLOR? Do you often find yourself heading out the door with the intention of capturing some really compelling images of COLOR only to come back empty-handed? Are you long on ideas but short on execution? Where does COLOR even come from? How do you compose COLOR? Do you ‘see’ ALL of the potential for recording out of focus colors, tones and shapes of COLOR?

This presentation is also about jump-starting your vision with the promise of recording one compelling COLOR composition after another. Comprised of more than 300 before and after examples, we can promise you that at the end of the hour, you will be inspired and motivated to go out and shoot the wonderful world of COLOR, now that you know where to look!

“Of all the photography books I have on my bookshelf, and believe me, I have quite a few, this is the one that stands out as the most helpful. It is the first one I recommend to new photographers and it is one that I refer to when I need a bit of a refresher. It will take the fear out of moving from the point and shoot modes to the creative modes of your camera.” Digital Photography School
