Well, lets try something new for me, a blogg
Have never done this before, so here goes.
Back from a fast trip to Toowoomba, My wife's mother had a a suspected heart attack. Shes back at home now, my wife stopping with her folks to help out, cook etc for a week while she has more test etc done. When all settled down, and just before I left, grabbed a shot of one of her flowers in the garden... as you do.
well, something I had problems with today, Photographing deep blue and purple flowers, even with grey cards, shades, calibrated everything, they cane out either red or blue. Both on sRGB and adobeRGB
Well after some hunting around, its not just my Nikon's that suffer this, most digital imagery products have the same problem.
The cause, the infrared/ and ultraviolet filters used in front of the CCD sensors don't pass as many frequencies( colors) of light that we humans can see.
THe solution, well myne anyway. Take a physical sample away from the shoot site with you to the editing computer and make sure the monitor is calibrated and everything running on the same color space.
next........... adjust hue, saturation and brightness of the problem color to match your sample.
I found I can get it to look OK, but not always perfect, but much improved.
Try for yourself, see how you go.
