The Science of Photography: Color Management

Color management helps you to achieve consistent color among digital cameras, computer monitors, phone, tablets and printers. Color management can be one of the most confusing concepts, because there are so many color management terms thrown around. Color model or mode, color space, color profile, workspace…what do they all mean and how do they relate to one another? In this episode of The Science of Photography, Whitney explains what each term means and then moves into the practical application of color management.

Whitney comes to us with degrees in biology, computer science and robotics. While at university and as part of several robotics startups, she wrote code to control robots and their various sensors, including cameras. She also trained experts on how to use these robots in a variety of settings, from search and rescue workers operating in a disaster, to astronauts training on the seafloor. She worked for several years at an optical spectrometer company where she programmed spectrometers and learned the physics behind light and color at their most fundamental levels. Later, she taught Photoshop and graphic design as an adjunct professor. Yet, it wasn’t until after she became a mom that she picked up a camera for the purpose of creating art. This unconventional career path allows Whitney to bring to bear a diverse technical background that promises a unique depth to her work, while her skills as an educator allow her to explain it in a way that remains accessible.
