Glossary

Here are some terms you might encounter while reading this book or working with your Sony Alpha.

additive primary colors The red, green, and blue hues that are used alone or in combinations to create all other colors that you capture with a digital camera, view on a computer monitor, or work with in an image-editing program, such as Photoshop. See also CMYK color model.

Adobe RGB One of two color space choices offered by the Sony Alpha. Adobe RGB is an expanded color space useful for commercial and professional printing, and it can reproduce a larger number of colors. Sony recommends against using this color space if your images will be displayed primarily on your computer screen or output by your personal printer. See also sRGB.

ambient lighting Diffuse, non-directional lighting that doesn’t appear to come from a specific source but, rather, bounces off walls, ceilings, and other objects in the scene when a picture is taken.
