A lot of the problems experienced when shooting colour photographs arise from misunderstandings about the science and technology of colour capture. Once you have a good grasp of colour theory and put this into practice, it is still possible to come away with images which lack depth and structure - a frustrating situation when you thought you had all bases covered. The missing element is an appreciation for how your camera sees colour and how you should be using colour management settings to control the style of your images.

Here we have put together answers to some of the most asked colour-related questions. These should help photographers of any experience level overcome some often-overlooked issues of working with colour in the digital age, enabling you to capture more accurate and dramatic images every time.
