New to this forum and I looked all over but I can't seem to find an answer anywhere. All my negatives the scans were looking great and just out of the blue, the scans starting churning out these scans with a green/yellow cast. Attaching a photo here but this photo was overexposed by 1 stop and was lit entirely by the sun. Is this a film problem (poorly stored), a developing chemical issue, or is it a camera issue? Please, i'm going crazy trying to figure this out. :(

Thank you for all your help in advance !

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thank you, Xenoid for the response ! It's consistent throughout the roll and several rolls. I am currently scanning with the epson V550 and there are color curves that you can adjust but they seem to be really off even when I adjust the colors. :/ It doesn't look "genuine" for lack of a better word. I haven't had problems before. :( \$\endgroup\$

Looks like the original image was exposed under a florescent light source. You can apply a correction using your photo editor. Florescent lamps output a non-continuous spectrum. Yellow-green is the normal for these lamps.
