Our good friend Coloratti Mark Wallace of snapfactory fame produces a wealth of educational material. His very latest upload to AdoramaTV is called Using the ColorChecker Passport: Ep 209. This episode is an in depth 20 minute tutorial on using X-Rite ColorChecker Passport. Mark covers everything from keeping your fingers off the color patches to real world illustrations of how he uses ColorChecker Passport in his own photography.
Mark starts with using ColorChecker Passport in the studio and also shows how to shoot ColorChecker Passport outdoors in ambient light. He starts with the basics of proper exposure and in camera white balance and then moves on to a real time software demo in Adobe Lightroom. Mark points out that using a calibrated and profiled monitor along with a professional workflow for your printer that utilizes paper profiles assures accurate color reproduction all the way through your digital workflow. This video gives a really straightforward look at the dramatic differences that you can experience using a custom camera profile in Adobe Lightroom or Adobe Camera Raw applications.
