This is a conversation with Sam important as a journal entry for his level to reading log Sam, can you tell me about the text that you’ve been reading festival just what it is and then along with guide to digital photography.

I’ve been focusing on the chapter talent management cool what stimulated you to want to read something about this.

I noticed stole that the

printers print off a lot darker than what’s actually on the computer screen and it annoyed makers of into photography. So I wanted to know why

and set. And so you’ve got a nonfiction taste which explains all of that and quite a lot of detail and I’m quite keen to sort of talk through the things you’ve learned. So first of all, heavier. So the initial problem that that have the printers printing things differently to have it appear on the screen. Well, I understand how

like why

I haven’t

done anything about it. It’s go. Yep. At home I have tried

very hard if you don’t have the proper tools. Yeah, so So tell me about Tell me fistful about what you now know about what happens well like a camera screen printer deal with Cal differently, they have a different profile, but you can color so usually tried to get the printer string to have the same pitfalls in this like two different profile says okay Adobe profile

beside JP file

Sanjeev is usually the more popular one and then Adobe’s more like Windows. Yeah. So what are those profiles doing what are they describing. That’s why they see that on the picture the color

seen that like through displayed on the screen right but then sometimes the code. It could be like a light blue on the screen in that same code could mean a dark on the printer. Right. So you want to try and change it so that all the same. Yeah. And usually this software


Something that attaches to the screen that reads got coffee so so tell me more about that, like, now that so so you identify the problem from your reading is is identified that the devices handle colors, different and have different color profiles, how, how does it say that you can resolve that what what methods are available for you to approach that problem. Well, this

is like the

Simpsons that attach the screens, what do they do,

they usually just tweak it like some of them

on some of the new laptops, I have this nightmare darkness, the screen but no take that way so it doesn’t affect the way it looks,

is I think I don’t I haven’t done a lot on printers, but in cameras are quite good if you if it looks good on the camera and you want to make it look good on the screen. I want to change the camera.

So the first thing is obviously like one of the things that I know isn’t isn’t challenging aspect of digital photography and that’s the issue of the white point and and what color white is in any given photograph is going to be different depending on the lighting and then on the screen, they tend to have a very set white point which would have to be a depth. And wouldn’t it for each photograph depending on the circumstances of it. So what how do you handle that. Well, a few shoot in ROI or jP jP you can you can’t access the

color profiles and someone locked. If you only challenge it just kind of add a layer on top of the further

within was

so open. It’s not going to change the

problem right so it’s not like a filter, you’re actually falls in the photo right and then and the advantage of that is Tommy, you know what the advantage of doing that, it’s it’s a lot clearer. You don’t get the

pixels around.


And like JPEG compression algorithm business. So it actually doesn’t actually contain all the doctor and get a photograph in the first place. It will when you put the photo to the blog or something. Eventually sighs

locked in to us. What can we use. Yeah.

And then, does that mean that the software can adapt its characteristics to the specific lens and camera because they already have preset knowledge of those things are that’s fast and and that gets it into the into the computers in a way where you can you dealing with something that’s as close as possible to the original yeah

in the process of interacting with the printers. You said that you can use a sensor to calibrate your screen. Do what else can you do, are there other ways of doing it. What if you do manually in. You have to know what you’re doing quite well. You have to know what do you know no individual names

right so it’s like

that kind of stuff in the news. So what Tell me what you have to know the things like the things that you have to be able to do effectively to be able to calibrate your screen without a center

and actually not really research that

and then

you said you experimented a bed at home. How did that experimentation going on. So I just got a normal fell off my computer screen printed it off, put it off I computer screen saver look the same. Right. And it was a lot darker and that’s actually a calibration process, too. Isn’t it actually

is. So what did you do once they have more money into came with like a laptop so I could go into that and then change like problems and a lot of other things of the printer. Yeah. On the right, so what you were trying to do there is to adjust the settings of the printed to match the screen. Yeah, not the other way around. Right, contribute to it the other way around so you could import say a profile of the printer. As a color profile for your screen. Yeah. We could even scan

a photo from the printer. Probably screen right have the to sign here. Right.

Yeah, which which but then of course you’ve got the issue of how accurate the scanners. Yeah,

that’s interesting.

So you can also change help the scanner picks up the colors as well.

So with all of what you’ve learned from this what hasn’t made it has had an effect on your photography

school anymore, right. So, so I’ve got

the one at home. So I just use that. So, so now you’ve sort of got that appreciation of the importance of a calibration of the devices, you’re working properly calibrated

mature for the printer scope. I go on to labor or something and I like watching the picture, knowing that that’s gonna

never really get a perfect. How much

do you find that it makes any difference when you’re taking photographs, even though that’s a separate part of the process

that does means on court costs will look like if it looks good on camera because when I printed now.

So does that mean that you’ve learned something about the importance of the original yeah what is important about it like what are the things that matter when it takes

in order to make this process work well for you matters when you take your original photograph.

Well, if it’s too light on the camera

you have like a little differently on the computer right but in


skill base show and my thing is to Brian Germantown computer. It’s not it doesn’t look as good. So what’s the problem if it’s over exposed on the camera when you get it into the computer what problems. Does that energy’s what why is it not look as good. Even the quality of the photo when you’re just right. Right. Yeah. You won’t get as much data house.

Cool. And now that you’ve learned this and it’s sort of it’s improved your management of your photography process.

What are you going to do next. When you read more for another chapter and probably look at how to use live improperly right so wait mine socialism. Yeah, hello. Just one Hello are resisting yeah

and and that will allow you to sort of outcome that you’re looking forward you know you’re trying to achieve. In the end, you’re studying my affliction vibrant colors and some scope and

I don’t want to use like them too much, which is annoying because you can you can make it look really fake through like I wanna learn how to like evenly

great look like Florida. Yeah,

and the the water just look like a dark blue. Yeah. So does that mean that you’re looking to try and create original photographs that capture that as much as you can and then use light room simply to type clean it up. Is that right, rather than using libraries create those things because the cameras that captured like extremely vibrant colors tend to be quite expensive. So

you need a few us like when you can pretty much make it look like an expensive camera photo. But again,

it’s not as if you compare an exclusive with the chicken photo. You can see the details difference like crazy. Right.

Awesome. Is there anything else you’d like to explain about what you’ve read or planning to read math. I forgot to do right. Thanks very much.
