16 Real World Color Management, I-nd Edltlon The Observer and the Color Event Of the three participants in our simple model of the color event, you, the observer, are by far the most complex. Your visual system is way more complexthana blackbodyradiator or a hemoglobin molecule, so much so that we still have a great deal toleam about it. It starts with the structures of the eye, but continues through the optic nerve and goes deep into the brain. In this section. we lookat various models of human vision that form the basis of color management.

Reflectance (R) and transmittance 0. Densitometers don't measure density directly Instead, they measure the ratio between the intensity of light shone on or through a surface, and the light that reaches the detector in the instrument. This ratio is called the refectnnce [R)or the frnnsmitrance (T),depending on whether the instrument measures reflective materials such as ink and paper, or transmissive materials such as film. Densitometers use filters that are matched to the color of the material you are measuring, so that the detector sees a tlat gray.

Second, it correlates better with the thickness of materials like printing inks or film emulsions. which is one of the main functions of densitometers. Third, a logarithmic scale avoids long numbers when measuringvery dark materials (such as prepress films). To see what this means, imagine a surface that reflects 100% of all the light that strikes it-a so-called perfecr diflrser. 0, and its density is 0.
