Mentorship Zoom,- Control of Color - Kim Kuhlman


Kim will delve into the frequently frustrating control of color from digital capture to inkjet print.  We’ll begin by showing you how to calibrate your camera with various kinds of calibration targets and lighting scenarios so that you get the correct white balance every time.  Then we’ll talk about how the different tools available for monitor calibration and how to use them.  Finally, will discuss how to work with your lab’s color profiles so that you have more control over how your artwork is printed.  If there’s time, we’ll also talk about the tools available for calibrating your own printer.

Dr. Kim Kuhlman earned a Ph.D. in Engineering Physics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1998 and fatefully hitched her career to NASA, working at Caltech, JPL and the Planetary Science Institute.  Funding cuts resulted in a career pivot, away from imaging individual atoms in rocks and minerals to imaging pretty much everything else as well as website development and SEO.  She earned her Certified Professional Photographer degree from the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) in 2015, and her Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman degrees from PPA in 2018.  She was a Silver Medalist in International Print Competition in 2018 and a Bronze Medalist in 2020.  Her PPA Loan image, “Say What?” was nominated for a Grand Imaging Award (GIA) in 2017.  Kim has been a PPA Certification Liaison since 2018.  Please let her know if you have any interest in earning your certification.  Kim is currently a member of PPA, the American Society of Photographers (ASP), the Professional Photographers of New Mexico (PPANM), and the Professional Photographers Guild of Houston (PPGH).
