Paper Abstract

The ideal color photograph is one that captures what we see. This implies that photographic film should record human color sensations. Ordinary photography responds to the amount of light coming from the world in front of the camera. There is a large variety of scenes that have a greater range of light intensities than can be reproduced on a print. These scenes can be printed by capturing the data fromi the world, calculating color sensations, and writing those color sensations on a print.
