"preset white balance for indoors"


US
          

shot some pics(no flash) at my nephew's game. had the WB set on incadescent.
would it have helped if I had used a grey card and used the preset feature?

Maybe just accidentally used the wrong setting? Maybe a test shot on AutoWB would have helped? Did you shoot in NEF or Jpeg? Incandescent setting should "cool" a picture down, so unless it was Buglight yellow in there, it shouldn't have ended up that orange!!! Something wasn't right!

I think it would have helped. I tried this befoer and what I did was took two picture one with and without preset feature. With preset it looks much much better- orange will disappear for sure- Good Luck-B

It looks like sodium lighting (much more orange than tungsten).

Using "Pre" WB would have helped (if the ceiling was white, I'd have taken the reading from this). "Incandescent +3" might have been enough to cool these pictures down though.

Thanx for the replys.

didn't try the autoWB setting. oops.

pics were shot in jpeg. don't have PS.

I think he has a game saturday. if so, I'll try preset and "Incandescent +3".

it might be sodium lighting. I've shot many indoor shots(home), and haven't seen anything like that orange before.

Try raw and there is a free download form Nikon called view. It allows you to convert Raw to JPEG.

Pacasa is free for now from Google and it has some nice features.

update....

its sodium lighting.

went to another game today to try different settings, aaaannnnnnnnddd try out out my new 50mm 1.8 lens.

I tried preset and Incandescent +3.

best results were with the Incandescent +3, the 3rd shot of the three.

I also downloaded Nikon view. which is kind of funny, me, trying to adjust color, when I have red/green color blindness.

anyway, this is a preset pic after I worked on it

this is a bracketed pic after I worked on it.

this was a preset pic with some flash after I worked on it.
