Coloratti News | Welcome Daniele Barraco
by Brenda K. Hipsher – January 24th, 2012
Please welcome Coloratti Daniele Barraco. Daniele is from Italy and specializes in portrait and celebrity photography. He is an X-Rite solutions user and knows first hand the beauty of a color managed digital workflow. Monitor calibration is an absolute must for this professional. And of course the white balance of the captured image is vital. Daniel also uses custom paper profiles for his in house printing. “Color management is not just for aspiring photographers, it is exactly the same for worldwide renowned photographers,” says Daniele. “If you are able to manage colors by yourself you’ll save a lot of money on consultants to fix your workflow’s mismatching problems.”
Daniele Barraco was awarded an Honorable Mention in the Advertising category at International Photography Awards 2010 ( IPA ). The International Photography Awards conducts an annual competition for professional, non- professional, and student photographers on a global scale, creating one of the most ambitious and comprehensive competitions in the photography world today. At IPA 2011 he was awarded again with two Honorable Mention in Fine Art and People categories. Daniele approaches subjects with a strong visual clarity and a classic sense of composition creating modern, eye catching images for the editorial and advertising markets.
Daniele is passionate about people, their faces and their stories. Daniele is a story teller using his camera instead of words to communicate with the viewer. From celebrities to the rest of us, he uses the camera to capture not only the face of the subject but also the emotion behind what we show to the world. When asked how color management relates to this artistic process he says, “In my case color management [is] a good starting point for my … process.” Perhaps especially for black and white reproduction in digital photography, color management is vital to capture, edit, and print the exact tonal range that the photographer envisions.
