About D65

Mission Statement

No one ever accused a creative mind of being organized. The two don't usually go hand in hand. But when you're a photographer, being organized is invaluable. And if your're shooting digitally, it's crucial. D-65 is a unique company dedicated to educating photographers. We work with the industry to offer new ways of thinking, while incorporating the latest technologies. Our services include digital workflow workshops, webinars, one-on-one training and tech support, and consulting for photographers, studios, agencies, and corporate art departments. D-65 provides quality professionalism, while understanding the needs of photographers and creative individuals.

Why did we choose the name D-65?

D-65 is an industry recommended white point or color temperature standard for monitors. We chose the name D-65, because it closely reflects our goal to become an industry standard for educating and furthering the knowledge of digital photographers with a diverse range of tools. We aspire to inform and help photographers seek the truth of the medium, by meticulously opening their eyes to perceive the world around them in an inspirational way.

For those of you who are technically inclined

If a true black object is heated, the color shifts from a beginning red glow to orange, yellow, white and eventually a bluish white. The exact color of this light is called "black body radiation" typically measured in degrees Kelvin. A tungsten light comes very close to being a pure black body while fluorescent lights are often very green and flashes are often magenta.

The D class of illuminants specify energy distributions that simulate the radiation emitted by a so-called black-body. As the tempertature of a black body increases there is a shift in the emitted radiation to shorter wavelengths. A specific D illuminant is notated with reference to the temperature (in Kelvin) of the black-body which it most closely resembles. The illuminant D65 has a spectral energy distribution that closely matches that of a black-body at 6500K. To get a color to appear white to the human eye, you need to get several parameters correct so they correspond to the eye's three types of color sensors.
