THAT DRESS! 2 important lessons for Photographers!

Featured Sunday, 01 March 2015 04:53

Two important lessons to be learnt from the DRESSGATE phenomena.

Colour matters! Don't assume your files will be viewed in ideal conditions on output - and be CAREFUL how and what you share online - once it goes out - it is GONE!

    Hi matt,
    Great gor you to explain the dress colours.
    I did disagree with you though.
    I have seen this many times after owning a lab and i fo have some quskifications in colour theory.
    Ok tell me if im wrong.
    1. the shot is underexposed, because the camera has seen the white and the bright background caused the camera to underexpose.
    The shot was taken in the shade so the colour temp was cold also.causing the white to go blueish.
    2. If the gold was black it wouldnt have that yellowish tint also woulnt look shinny as well.
    If the shot was over exposed the black would become more greyish as well but it doesnt sppear that way.
    Id be interested in you reply.
    Its funny how its caused so many comments. But i have seen this over the years in other areas.

    Hello Matt.. how r you.?? my name is Abhishek.. i am a beginner in photography and have just started shooting weddings and events...but the problem is that the pictures in prints are not as good as in the computer ..(e.g Red becomes orange,, blue becomes violet,.. orange tends to white..) i used Nikon D5100 with Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G DX..and edited in LR and PS... i know the monitor calibration is important..i have done calibration with software.. what should i do..???? what is your suggestion Matt..?? how i know which lab gives me the good quality prints..???

    Looking at the shot of the dress I see blue and gold as opposed to blue and black or white and gold.

    Don't see it as either gold or black; rather as a beige/brown........

    It is definitely blue and black that is overexposed!
