I recently did a product photoshoot.
After a few pictures, I noticed that some of the photos are warm coloured, some of them are cold. I have not touched the object, my camera was on a tripod, and I used the same settings (in manual mode) for every picture. It is really annoying because I need to create a GIF from about 15 photos and some of them are yellow, some are blue. Even some photos turned out half yellow / half blue on the same picture.
Here is an example showing the different colour temperature. They are shot with the same settings, same light, same camera, same tripod, etc...:
For the shoot, I used two softboxes (continuous light) and they remained at the same place for the whole time. These are my settings (identical for all pictures):
- Focal length: 50 mm
- Aperture: f/5.6
- Shutter speed: 1/320
- White abalnce: 5260 K
- Spot metering
I was wondering if the problem was that I had my camera set to spot metering mode, but I am not sure.
Any suggestions or ideas why is this happening?
I shoot in RAW, so I know that I can fix this in Photoshop, but it's a lot of work with 15-20 images. Especially that it says that the yellow and the blue images have the exact same level of temperature and tint. So I probably have to reduce the temperature of the yellow one to match with the blue images but that's very complicated, because not all the images are the same.
