This method can be a little complicated, so take your time and try to practice, it will probably take a few tries to get it down.
You will need:
- Photoshop (or similar editing program)
**NOTE: All photographs used in this tutorial were shot and retouched by myself
Step 1: Why Does my Photo Have a Color Shift?
Color shifts are caused by different color temperatures in light, we call these "Kelvin temperatures." Daylight has a Kelvin temperature of 5000, and is the most neutral you can get your photo to look.
Have you ever photographed something in your house under a typical house bulb and the whole photo turned out orange or yellow? That's because typical household lights have a Kelvin temperature of about 3000, which can look yellow, but because the human brain is so sophistocated, it corrects this to daylight temperature for us. Tungsten and flourescent light bulbs can also have a similar effect, where we don't see the shift, but our cameras do.
Tungsten bulbs tend to have a magenta shift to them, while fourescent bulbs can turn a photograph green. Yuck!
