Purple Hue

Apprentice

When I use the flash in daylight everything comes out purple. Flash at dark, beautiful. No flash, beautiful. Was told it was the Camera's built in flash, so bought a MT - 24EX, n again all purple. My intention of using a flash is that it is hard to get Models out of bed in the morning for that great morning light. Everything ends up being noon, n of course I want rid of those heavy shadows in their eyes caused by the noon sun. Bring out my Studio Flashes, reflectors, everything elese works. But if I don't want a lot of extra help around, just me the camera n a model, purple pictures. Help apreciated.

Are you new to photography?

 

Use RAW and post edit, problem solved.  No matter what WB you have selected.

Yes ebiggs1, very new to photography. 1st publication was in the 70s, and believe me that was only yesterday, as I don't know where the time has gone. But RAW is good advice, although slow and memory intense. I capture moments more than creating them. Ie, put the composition together n see what happens. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ jrhoffman75, Thanks, exactly what I am looking for, what I'm screwing up, n what I need to study.

Get a good post editor like Lightroom.  Shoot RAW and all will be wonderful.  Smiley Happy
