Quite often photographs do turn out to be defective in terms of color. Color correction in photographs is a subtle affair that requires the person to be very color sensitive and be able to work sometimes for long hours with patience. However modern technology and tools make it possible to make any levels of color correction in digital photographs and images. Much software available today can be used for color correction, color balancing and colorization.
Color balancing is a term that refers to a situation where the photograph has color casts, meaning, the entire image seems shifted to one color. This can be easily corrected often automatically. We can do a number of other color corrections in a photograph including,
- Creative coloring effect
- Black and white split toning
- Skin tone changes
- Enhance cloud contrast
- Gray balancing
- Cross processing of color
- Remove color casts
It is known that the colors in a photograph define the mood of the photo. Different colors have different symbolic meanings. Hence selection of colors and correction has to be done keeping in mind the kind of effect one needs to create in the photo and its objective. Gender and age specific color choices are also to be recognized.
