Listen: Grace, REG, Kulla Meena discussed on B&H Photography Podcast
"Of cholera shoes about street, lights, red and green street light. I know the difference, but it's interesting when I was a kid, I wondered why they called the white light green. Saving Grace's death. Reg always on top. So that's a saving grace that we have here. So it it just wouldn't the top ones on. But yeah it's goofy ridden. White look the same to you. That was just that particular end. It's more with the older streetlights, the newer LED ones. I, I can see. It's something I don't think about. Just seems such a lousy dresser. Yeah. Now it's funny because I've plays into it whenever I buy clothes. You know, I'll ask somebody. I'll ask my sister. What color is this? What does it go with? And then I remember it so I'll know. Okay. I could wear the shirt with Brown belt, I wear. So when you started photography, what kind of challenge was it for you and how many times did you look at something and say, you know what? That's actually not what I thought I was thinking of. Okay. So I started with film, and I knew from the very beginning I could shoot because I could shoot film, but I couldn't print because you get in the dark room. And, you know there's filters and all that to correct the color of there was no way. I do that. So when digital came along that was a huge step for me because now is value. Yes, I could go in and I know what? Our GB value. Certainly you're supposed to be. So all of a sudden, I could color, correct. And it was amazing. I mean that said, if I had to do something really critical, if I was doing work for our client or a photo that I just knew that particular color casts were difficult for me. I can ask somebody, I might hire an assistant come at it with me. My sister was great. I can't tell you how many times my sister and sat next to me, while meditating photos and, and she would just be reading and look up and say, no, no, no, no. Not that regs wrong background. Interesting thing because you can go technically I have a little bit of familiarity, as an engineer earlier, I once wrote an article on color management for color. Printing for being h the website and one of the letters that got back comments was that loved your article. But I'm colorblind what do I do? And a second article on color management, color, blind people and it comes down to the numerical value of the colors, but the bugaboo there is that the correct Kulla Meena p the best color because sometimes you want to throw a little bit of a cast, you want warm, cool or magenta was something like that. Because just like exposures the correct exposures not always the best experience. Same thing with color is that we depend on people to tweak. Actually when you get into areas like that. Then you're here's the shining, example, shooting in sunset light. Everything's nice and warm. You go on balance that for a white, you ruin the photo xactly. Right. So you want, those warm tones. And when when you're talking about light, that's that warm in a really care of the rent is the corrector or, and the green. Yeah. But if you go press w and click on a white spot, and a photo like that you just ruin it. We hope you're enjoying this edition of the H photography podcast. Send us a tweet."
