The color correction is acting as expected. The point of using a color target is to adjust for the color of light to assume that the light is white. If you want to have the color that is present when shooting, you should instead use a fixed white point that you consider to be standard white, but naturally people's eyes will adjust quite a bit for the color ...

The majority of the monitors released in at least the last 5-7 years should have the native white point at 6500K, unless it's some specialized display, which usually cost much more. If the native white point of your display differs from D65, then there might be something enabled in the settings, like cinema or gaming mode. Before calibrating and profiling ...

Before we can understand what happens during TTL flash metering, we must first understand how metering works in general. There is no single "correct" exposure value for an entire scene, there are only correct exposure values for objects with a specific luminance value within that scene. If "correct" exposure is equivalent to 18% gray, then only one luminance ...

It is impossible to make a camera see like human eyes see. A camera sensor is made to see as closely as possible but any closet and there are serious noise issues to deal with. So all we can do with cameras today is calibrate them to match 24 colors or so under one illuminant, and hope that doesn't change much throughout the day. We all know that ...

The colour checker actually is getting rid of the warm colour, and recalibrating the colours to neutralize the reddish tone. So that alone is not the approach. Colour is not about absolute value; it is all about perception. Here is an exercise I prepared to show how our eyes actually change perception of the colours all the time. Before clicking the link ...

TTL metering does have an impact on the exposure settings when shooting automatic or partially automatic, the extent depends on your situation. If you are shooting in dark conditions, it nearly replaces it entirely since it is the primary source of light. In the case you describe however, there often isn't much if any change because it is acting as a ...

The "Brightness" of a flash is characterized by its guide number. The higher the number the brighter. If you are looking at the usual camera-mounted "Cobra" flash, keep in mind that many have a mobile reflector to adjust the width of the beam, a narrower beam yielding a higher GN. The beam width is given in mm, and is the focal length of ...

Perhaps i should have just said what type of lighting and background do i need to capture this ambient lighting. As well as the editing and other post photo stuff. – Joseph This image is obviously shot with a window in the frame and providing light. Using a sheer white cover over a window is a common method for utilizing window light, which is soft in ...

I don't see any mention of the use of a colorimeter or spectrophotometer, so at best, if you have perfect color vision yourself, you will only end up with "close enough" results via guesswork. Matching white point between devices is an extreme strain on the eyes. Use of profiling software and hardware would greatly ease this task. Bear in mind that all you ...
