3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly misleading title Sept. 17 2006
By Michael G. Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I wondered what I might learn from this book, what could possibly be said on the topic besides vague generalities. Well, the author has gone to great lengths to teach the reader about all the different color spaces out there, and to provide insight into how colors work together in a composition. The result is a work that sensitizes the reader to color issues, without providing much that is prescriptive in the way of either photographic or post processing instructions. If that's what you want, then this book is for you. Perhaps the title ought to have been Mastering Color Spaces and Relationships, since it really does not attempt to elevate the user to mastery of color digital photography.

3.0 out of 5 stars Large coverage, Too general Sept. 11 2008
By W. Chung - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is my first photography book about colour. It covers a good large range of topics about colours. From introduction of individual colour, colour temperature, colour properties to colour relationship and colour editing.

However, after years of reading photography magazine and websites, I don't find these information useful or new.

In addition, there are only TWO small pages (the book is not even in A4 size) for each topic, there is no way to go into any details at all.

I don't think it is worth buying this book or recommend this book to any one unless he/she is totally new to photography basic knowledge.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Useful and Informative Supplement to His Design Book, "The Photographer's Eye" Sept. 1 2008
By T. Campbell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book takes his section in "The Photographer's Eye" on color theory and goes a lot deeper and farther. Much more depth into the traditional color contrasts, but also a great deal of informative material on color spaces, color interactions, history, color and media, and possibilities with digital manipulation.

This book would serve very nicely as a text for a color or color theory course in an undergraduate art program. And it is so much more reasonably priced than such "textbooks" as Zelanski's book on color, the price of which is just ridiculous.

If one already owns "Eye" and wishes further, very competent information on color in images, this is a very fine choice. If one just wants to know more about color in images, it is still a very fine choice.
5.0 out of 5 stars Top Text Nov. 8 2005
By S. Prince - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An excellent book. Well written and easy to understand. If you have not previously been instructed in the science of color you will be well served by this text. The photo examples make the book! Very, very, well illustrated. Too the point.

After reading this book I can say, "I DO understand digital color."

Thats what I paid for.
