Color is an interpretation of our environment but is not completely revealing by itself of the deeper 'truths' that help form it, such as the interaction of light with matter.In this thesis we study how color stimulus is formed and research how we can optimally reproduce it. Spectroscopic measurements were performed to determine the spectral reflectances of Colorimetric charts, standards in the color science world. Various common and scientific light sources are measured to determine their Spectral Power Distribution, which can be used as a tool for detecting the illumination in unknown conditions. A practical Snapshot Multispectral method is described, and used to produce high fidelity color results of scenes, regardless of the illumination. We elaborate on how to overcome problems inherent to the color production such as metamerism.
