Intuitive Color Spaces A top-down view of hexcone HSV Color Space A more intuitive color space • H = Hue • S = Saturation • V = Value (or brightness) Hue Saturation Value Precise Color Specifications • Pigment-mixing is subjective --- depends on human observer, Pigment-mixing surrounding colors, lighting of the environment, etc surrounding • We need an objective color specification • Light is electromagnetic energy in the 400 to 700 nm wavelength Light range range • Dominant wavelength is the wavelength of the color we “see” • Excitation purity is the proportion of pure colored light to white light • Luminance is the amount (or intensity) of the light is Electromagnetic Spectrum Visible light frequencies range between ... 14 • Red = 4.3 x 1014 hertz (700nm) hertz 14 • Violet = 7.5 x 1014 hertz (400nm) hertz Figures 15.1 from H&B Visible Light Hue = dominant frequency (highest peak) Saturation = excitation purity (ratio of highest to rest) Lightness = luminance (area under curve) White Light Figures 15.3-4 from H&B Orang...
