Color is real, but only in our minds. Physics measures the stimulus but cannot reach the perception. Color helps us understand reality.
Do you know:
– there are more than three primary colors
– brown and orange are the same hue
– a third of the visible colors aren’t in the rainbow
– why moonlight comes from sunlight but has a different color?
This presentation seeks to clarify how color works in lighting with some simple concepts that can be applied anywhere. We will use custom software and color-changing LED fixtures to demonstrate primary colors in lighting, how they mix together, and the effect they have on lighting scenes and surfaces.
