Can anyone recommend a book, or online resource(s) that provides a clear, accurate and comprehensive overview of digital image concepts. The kind of thing I'm looking for would cover the following topics and show how they are related, how they are different and how they are actually applicable both during shooting, and then later how they affect the post-production pipeline.
- Colour Model e.g. Hue, value, chroma, saturation, tint, shade etc
- Colour Spaces
- Colour Gamuts
- Gamma Curves
- Bit Rates
- How different colour spaces look on different monitors
- Difference between RGB / CMYK / YCrCb
I'd really like to get a solid understanding about how all of this fits together so that I can be far more useful on set as an AC - I realise some of this is much more important for a DIT or those in post-production but there have numerous times where I've felt that having this information would be really useful and although I know many of the basics I'd like to expand that quite a bit.
I realise that there is also a "Books" section but thought that maybe it applied more to DIT's - please move if necessary.
Thanks in advance.
