Erratum #1

While I’m on the subject of John Dickinson, I must also credit him with being the first reader diligent enough to send me a validated erratum from the book. I’m not talking different interpretation of physics here, I’m talking mistake: on page 170, it reads “…the effect of lowering Input White is something like dimming the image” – no, that would increase contrast in the bright values. Instead of Input White, that should read “Output White.”

See, I told you I was flying too close to the sun! This serves as living proof that Levels and Curves can be tricky to hold in your head even when writing your second edition of a chapter on the topic.

    I just found out I got Input and Output White jumbled myself on page 248 of The DV Rebel’s Guide. No one is safe!
