What you'll learn in this camera class:

This long-awaited masterclass on Color Science has finally arrived! We have created a comprehensive, practical training on the subject of Digital Imaging for modern motion picture productions, from the camera to the end-user display device.

In this course, you will learn how to get the most out of modern digital camera sensors and how to take full control of your image. We will teach you the difference between the Scene Referred and Display Referred approach, how to manage and control various color spaces through Gamut and Tonal Mapping, and how to fully embrace the tools for color management available today. 

This course is all about image manipulation beyond traditional color grading tools, advanced camera matching, film stock emulation, HDR and Wide Gamut workflows. At the end of this two-day training, you will not only have full insider knowledge of techniques but will also gain practical experience on how to use them.
