    Default Color Accuracy of Photographs

    I know a lot of people like to make selections off photographs, and you can't really go by them for color accuracy. Cameras vary, monitors vary....at best you can get an approximation. Always go be a sample swatch of the actual material. Example; here's a Hancock and Moore Author Chair in Cameo Stone Burnished leather that just arrived in my store.

    This photo was taken with my iPhone X s MAX (which has a pretty good camera in it). This one is actually the more accurate of the two:

    And here's one taken immediately after, with my in-store Nikon D40 camera. This photo doesn't have the depth of color that the iPhone one has, and the piece looks a little flat and "dusty". It doesn't capture the richness of this leather on this chair.

    Hope that helps you when you look at photos.
