CPP: Color Temperatures

Steve Kozak M.Photog.Cr., CPP

Of course it’s easy to see color temperature and explain it, but what about on the CPP exam where you’ll have to relate it to the Kelvin Scale or other technical terms? Go over color concepts with PPA Instructor, Steve Kozak. He’ll also discuss other topics sure to be on the exam, including:

  • Color Balance
  • The Kelvin Scale
  • Quality of Light
  • Camera Icons for correcting and controlling color
  • Color Correction Filters (CC Filters)

With visuals and complete explanations, Steve makes sure you learn and understand color temperature as it relates to the CPP exam. Come test time, you won’t even break a sweat.

We value your feedback and want to know how we can improve. Please share your thoughts about the class here.
