Chapter 10. Color Correction and Selecti... > Selection for Color Correction

Selection for Color Correction

As hinted at the beginning of the chapter, we'll be using a photo of a pair of hands for our selection and color correction work. It'll be easy and educational! For our first exercise, open the Hands Start file from the Examples/Chap10 folder on the companion CD.

This picture was taken in the late afternoon in the woods, which explains the “cold” colors. Your eyes are extraordinarily able to compensate and to adapt to color casting. When you take a picture of someone in a forest, the color of that person's skin might look completely natural to you, but your camera will catch the green cast caused by the sunlight filtering through the leaves. The camera will see cold colors and skin with a green cast, and that's what it captures onto film or memory chip.
