counteract the more red in daylight photo's

Recommended Posts

Hi all, ready for a newbi question?

Has there ever been someone that counteracted the  "more red" in daylight photo's from a modded Canon 100D done with putting a filter on the "daylight" lens and not by using software? and if so, what did you use? (type, name, brand, price)

Why do I ask: I have a good unmodded camera but I just wont to know if it can be done :)

Easiest way (and free!) is to set a custom white balance with a sheet of white paper under whatever illumination source you intend to use. Usually you find custom white balance under the white balance settings within the camera menu's - check your manual to set how your particular camera needs to be set-up for custom balances.

As Francis says, I did this with my modded 60D.  Set up a custom white balance and use it all the time.  I actually used a photographers grey card rather than white.  It worked very well.

as soon as the Canon is here (now on  it's way from England) I willl look in to that, Thank you, but was just wondering if it can be done with a filter on your lens.

Astronomic make a filter that counteracts that red shift, I think it’s called an OWB (origonal white balance) filter and clips inside..HTH

By rights you should use a neutral grey card to create a custom white balance, you can actually buy the card from a camera shop, then at midday with the sun behind take an image of the grey card outside, and set that as the white balance, it should be almost perfect then... :)
