Ever wonder how some photographers are able to render vivid colors of ordinary scenes? If you're thinking it's all in the camera, well, it isn't.

Color, like light, is something every photographer should take time to study and experiment with. This lesson demonstrates a straightforward method in altering the color of ambient light in the background of shots, while maintaining neutral light on the subject.

Contributing instructor Paul Markow brings his talent and years of commercial experience to bring us this unique Member lesson.
