What does the artist-cum-photographer need to know to about digital photography and imaging software to have a reasonable chance of success? Drawing on the presenter’s book, “Color Science and the Visual Arts: A Guide for Conservators, Curators, and the Curious,” this presentation provides the required knowledge including the goals of color reproduction, the image, image quality, color management, and why reproducing artwork is difficult.
Roy S. Berns is co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Gray Sky Imaging. He is also Professor Emeritus at Rochester Institute of Technology where for 35 years, he was the Richard S. Hunter Professor in Color Science, Appearance, and Technology. Berns was the second Director of the Munsell Color Science Laboratory. He developed the United States’ only graduate program in color science. He received B.S. and M.S. degrees in Textiles from the University of California at Davis and a Ph.D. degree in Chemistry from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). Berns is the author of the third and fourth editions of Billmeyer and Saltzman’s Principles of Color Technology and Color Science and the Visual Arts: A Guide for Conservators, Curators, and the Curious.
The Inter-Society Color Council advances the knowledge of color as it relates to art, science, industry and design.
Each of these fields enriches the others, furthering the general objective of color education.
