Hi. I'm new to the Lensbaby scene. I've mostly shot with Double Glass Optic in Composer. Here's a link to my photos:

Please check them out and give me your feedback. I think the color is off on several, with sort of blue/purple hues in them, particularly in the blurred areas. What do you think? What causes this, and how can I correct? I prefer not to get involved with a bunch of editing on the computer. Thanks.

Kevin

Kevin:

The color cast of blue/purple is most likely a white balance problem. The images were taken in the shade, which is cooler then in direct sunlight .

To correct... use a warming filter or change the white balance in your menu settings .

Sure it's a pain to correct your images in camera, but that's the price we all pay to get nice images without editing in the computer .

I have to balance my computer monitor to insure my images are what I want.....and if I'm printing them out, then I have the printer to balance .....digital is a lot easier then when I used film to record my images, but no matter how or what we use to make our photos with.....light is light,
it has to be balanced to the cameras sensor or particular type of film stock . :)

Thanks ranfoto. I appreciate your reply. If I am in the shade I'll set the white balance to "Shade". If that doesn't do the trick then I'll try making manual adjustments. Thanks again.

Zonakev, this might be pure logic but always shoot in raw so you have the most choice and options in post processing your images, like setting the correct wb.
