I'm an amateur photographer and I have a Nikon D5200 and a ColorChecker Passport. I'm trying to understand what are the procedures that I should take to capture the real true colors that I am seeing.
I was taking photos in a room where the light had a golden/orange tone. I set my camera to custom white balance and I used the ColorChecker's gray card as a reference. What happened was that the photos were taken as if the light on that ambient was pure white, but it wasn't!
What am I doing wrong? I'm confused because, as you may know, the ColorChecker is also a color reference card. I'm pretty sure that I have what I need to capture the real colors that I can see through my eyes — so what am I doing wrong?
