Here's another look at the weathervane on the cupola over my studio.

One of the issues that digital photographers like to debate is which "color space" to use. Back when we were film photographers, the issue was quite different. There was transparency film (slides) and negative film (prints). For transparency film, you had to choose between indoor and outdoor film. If you accidentally shot indoor film outdoors, it came out very blue. Shooting outdoor film indoors came out almost red. Negative film could be used in both places as it was corrected in the printing.

Color space is a subject of great debate (always more fun than actually shooting pictures). The simplest setting is SRGB, and it's the default for most digital cameras. If you use this setting when working on your pictures, they'll look about the same when you put them on the web or anywhere else. Gourmet settings for color space include Apple RGB and Adobe RGB 1998 (obviously a vintage year for colors).

Some have asked me about my color space and I've decided to share it. The image above shows my actual color space as I import it directly into my studio and harness it for my work. It took some adjustment but now it works just fine.
