I’m in Scotland and this time of year, the overall light tends to have a blue cast to it. This is obviously not too helpful when I’m trying to photograph coloured items!
Daylight means everything is very coldly lit, which I can warm up a little using my software. I can more or less cope with this, but daylight hours here are short so I end up using artificial light.
I have a light tent and use the lamps that come with that, and find the colour cast changes at random - some photos taken seconds apart with no changes apart from a twiddle with positioning of the item (ie turning it) can be yellowish in tone, others have a very blue cast whilst others are reddish. Again, I can fiddle on software, but I never feel I quite get it right.
Is there a consistant way to compensate for winter light that anyone has managed to find? I’m so frustrated and would love to know how to tackle this properly.
