PhotographyBLOG Review: Color Confidence

January 11, 2005 | Mark Goldstein | PhotographyBLOG | 6 Comments |

Color ConfidenceSo you’ve got the latest digital camera, the biggest monitor and the most cutting-edge printer, but your prints still have an awful green cast that makes the people in them look seasick? Then you need to read “Color Confidence” by Tim Grey (published by Sybex), a book that aims to demystify the often misunderstood topic of colour management and make your prints look life-like. The book is aimed at any photographer who is fed-up of wasting valuable time and money on inaccurate prints and who would rather be out shooting pictures instead. So is Color Confidence the answer to all your colour nightmares - can it really make that green print match reality? Read my short review to find out.

A new digital camera, printer and Photoshop. Talk about jumping in the deep end. This book was a lifesaver. Explains all (most?) of the secrets to good printing and color management. If color counts, this is the book.

Great timing, Mark! I just bought the book over Christmas and haven't had time to read it yet. It's good to know I picked a winner. :lol:

As the author of this book, I was delighted to see this very kind review. I've been very happy (and flattered) with all the great reviews I've received. I hope all who read Color Confidence find it tremendously helpful in achieving greater color predictability and a better understanding of color management as it relates to digital imaging and photography.

Right now I'm working on a book that covers workflow in Photoshop for photographers. After that I have two more books in the works...
