    a cheap project for all you strobists out there.
    these little things have proved invaluable to me of late.

    Blue Look

    Jcon,

    I wasn't going for the blue look, but when I get into low light conditions and have the white balance set for auto, I am definitely getting a blue cast to my photos. This photo was taken at 8:43 pm F/8 and a 30 second exposure. I do have the camera set to Vivid with the saturation and hue +1 and sharpening at 6. (although even the pictures I took with it in Landscape color choice look blueish). It seems when I take long exposures when it is getting dark I get a blue light.

    See this for another example:
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/33718659@N04/375


    That one was taken at 9:30 at night and with a different lens (my 18-105 vs the 35mm F1.8). Also a long exposure 25 secs and F5.6 at 105mm.

    Both of these are straight out of the camera. (I did resize them though).

    Also when I look at the Histograms both have the blue channel shifted to the right compared to the red and the green.

    Maybe this blue tint question is worthy of it's own thread?

    Surely the hue +1 explains a colour shift

    Color Shift

    When I use the landscape color choice I do not have it set for the +1 it is at 0, you can still see a shift in the histogram, although there is a slight difference. Looking at the picture though, it still have the blue tint.

    I was thinking it might be the polarizer, but I'm not so sure since I have pictures with and without it and you can tell when I use it, but the histogram doesn't have a great shift in it. (although when you do use a polarizer you have to change your exposure settings)

    DPR. The macro pic is simply brilliant. It is what I should strive for with my Tammy. I just saw your comment on my last pic. Unfortunately, all i got is lightroom.

    Rooz. this is a great tip. thanks for sharing.

    BikerJohn. I think you will get the blue look with long exposures during that time of day. It happens to me when white balance is set to Auto. Also, I use CP as well but normally only when the Sun is present. this pic below was taken at around the same time as yours. Not sure if this helps

    Custom White Balance

    Do you mean in the camera or in the raw editor later? I was just playing with the custom WB in photoshop elements camera raw plug in. Here's what I came up with for the second picture - the bridge and light trails. I had my seven year old standing over my shoulder also helping me decide how to change the colors

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/33718659@N04/3758337776/

    The falls has a white balance of 4200.
    Here it is at 7000, what I thought was a much more "true" color.



    Ummm, looks like I need to start playing with the raw images and take a class on elements and all the options to adjust, learn how to adjust the brightness of certain areas....
    Probably calibrate my screen, decide on Adobe color profiles or Srgb, etc. There is sooooo much to learn to get this stuff "just right"
    I can now see several things that I want to modify with this image...
