Calumet Gallery, New York City, February 27, 2014; Book launch, “Color Management & Quality Output” by Tom Ashe received a warm welcome by the photography community. The location for this event could not have been better, since the Calumet Gallery currently has great photographs from the exhibition “Natural Selection” on display. And in regards to this art work, Mr. Ashe’s color management teaching was a key component on its photographic output.
In conclusion, the event turned from a book signing to a big party with music, food and libations.
It was a fantastic night of abundant joy and friendship, to see event images please click here!
About the Book
Color Management & Quality Output is divided into two sections. The first section is on color and color management. It is meant to give photographers a background on how color works and then how color is reproduced from capture to display to print. This section also looks at how color is managed in applications like Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. The second section deals with different types of output, like inkjet, photographic digital C-print, and CMYK printing presses. Then we look at how you can optimize your output from re-sizing and sharpening to framing and finishing your prints. In the end, it is about helping photographers to feel in control of faithfully producing their artistic vision to the printed page or iPad screen.
