Let’s Fix Your Red Images in Camera and Print Them

Fixing reds in the camera and then printing saturated colors like reds and yellows can give you problems when you get up close to your subjects. I did this video for my Macro Photography Live Chat Show and feel that it’s super important so I want to help you if you didn’t have the chance to watch the show. I realize that you may not have time to watch an hour show but hopefully, you’ll have time for a 10-minute video.  🙂


Steps from the video:

2:15 – Color problem example and why

2:07 – Custom White Balance Camera

04:13 – Use the Histogram

06:30 – Ways to Fix the problems

Now if you want to print those colors… go to this video CLICK HERE and click on the 21:00 mark. It’s worth your time so you don’t get the mushy print that could happen because your gamut is out of whack. Below are some links to help you with color.
