Coloratti News | John Paul Caponingro MORE on Color


by Brenda K. Hipsher – June 6th, 2011

Coloratti John Paul Caponigro has really had color on his mind lately.  We featured a blog last week on Coloratti News about his post “The Color of Temperature.” Late last week he produced two more posts on his blog looking at different aspects and issues of color.

His June 2nd post called “Graphing Color” shows you step by step how to graph color in an image. He says, “Graphing color can help you identify colors more specifically and understand relationships between color better … Once colors have been graphed you will be able to identify a variety of relationships between colors, both colors that exist in a composition and colors that do not.”

The following day he posted another blog on color called “Color Analysis.”  In this post he illustrates the usefulness of really looking at color within and image. “This type of analysis will better reveal the color relationships at work within an image. You can use the information you’ve gathered by analyzing color relationships in an image not only to better understand it but also to make predictions about how you might improve them,” he says. Again the John Paul trademark for teaching is taking you step by step through a process that will allow you to analyze color within an image.

All three of these posts offer us a peek into the process of a great environmental artist and how he uses the tools of digital photography to produce stunning images.  John Paul has a way of creating short, easy to read and understand lessons that can immediately add to your creativity and the ease of your workflow.

Check out all three blogs on color from the past week and be sure to visit his website at www.johnpaulcaponigro.com to access free lessons, videos, workshop information and much, much more. And be sure to see the new video about him and his work at www.xritephoto.com. The video is called:
