Learning to work with light is an important milestone in every photographer’s career, and the ability to craft light to fit your vision for an image is a skill that cannot be overrated. Most often, that crafting of light is spoken of in terms of the quality and quantity of light. But there is an important, third component of light that heavily influences the final look of the image: the color of light. In Chroma: A Photographer’s Guide to Lighting with Color, photographer Nick Fancher helps you elevate your game when it comes to introducing the bold, creative, and intentional use of color into your work.
Whether you’re using a high-powered strobe or a small hotshoe flash, Chroma is for you. Nick begins with a discussion of color theory, gels, and white balance, then examines how to determine which colors complement your subject matter (whether that’s people or products). He moves on to cover topics such as:
Illustrated throughout with innovative and expressive imagery, Chroma also includes behind-the-scenes photos, lighting diagrams, and Lightroom settings so you can follow along from the initial concept through to the final edit.

This is another good book from NICK. I did read his “Studio Anywhere 1” and then “Studio Anywhere 2”. CHROMA is further application of his lighting concept especially on the technique on applying HARD LIGHT with colour. Before this book, I was scared to use hard light and very confused with the colour management in photography. I did learn a lot from this book and give me a lot of inspiration on using hard light on other photography. Thank you NICK and Rockynook!
