There are two ways to accomplish colour reproduction in filmmaking. Either you try to capture the colours of the subject as precisely as you can or produce colours that are gratifying to the eye, rather than accurate.
It is possible for filmmakers to struggle getting the exact shade of red or blue as the real thing.
The truth is you can’t rely on your cameras for getting accurate colours. That’s where colour charts come in the picture. These inexpensive accessories are simple to use and ensures that your pictures give out the most accurate colours that also look great.
The point to understand here is that any camera you use is not engineered to render accurate colours. Instead, it is designed to deliver colours that look great. Camera manufacturers aim to produce not exact but normally pretty images by tweaking shades of colour so they look more gratifying to the human eye.
The manner in which your camera records colour is evaluated by the white balance settings and the colours chosen when a filmmaker presses record.
Filmmakers who frequently shoot products find colour charts incredible tools for delivering the best results to their clients. For instance, if you are shooting for a shoe collection, you would want to record the exact colour of each pair. A colour chart helps you accomplish the best results in raw images.
Not only you can obtain a neutral starting point quicker than ever before to get the perfect colour balance, you also eliminate colour casts. Colour charts give you consistent colours even if ambient lighting changes to maintain optimal quality throughout a long shoot.
These accessories also improve colour alignment in case multiple cameras are utilized by taking into account their differences. You can make your editor and colourist more efficient with a colour chart since it minimizes your editing time.
Different cameras and lenses produce different results, even if the products come from the same brand. This adds up to some serious quality changes in post-production.
