 Post subject: Too Much Yellow
PostPosted: Mon May 07, 2012 7:30 pm 
I have a Lumix G3 with the 14-42 mm kit lens. I am getting green showing up with a yellow tint or bias. Grass and leaves look yellowish green rather than green green. If I take the photos in raw format and convert to jpg using the default settings, the color looks about right.

I would appreciate any advice on what causes the yellowish tint and how to get rid of it.

Thanks, Jim

For starters, I'd set your white balance to "auto"

Thanks for your reply. The White Balance is set to auto. Maybe I need to make a manual adjustment?

Thanks, Jim

When you're setting the White Balance--i.e. after you've pressed the WB button--you can adjust it by touching the bar that runs along the bottom of the screen or by scrolling/turning the wheel/dial. But this only adjusts red/blue. So you may also want to try setting a custom WB (with a blank piece of paper). Or setting the temperature (in degrees K).

Well, I don't see how to attach a photo to a post. I don't have any on-line photo album. Any suggestions?

Jim

OK, here are two photos. P1010236.jpg is as taken. P1010236_1.jpg was taken raw and developed with Panasonic SilkyPix Developer.
I think the as taken has too much yellow and the developed raw looks normal.

The photo above is "as taken".

The photo above was taken raw and developed.

I would appreciate any insight about the colors in the two photos.

Thanks, Jim

That looks to me like Panasonic's Standard "too much green", not too much yellow. (Note that the bare rock(?) without any gravel(?)/wood chips(?) on it on the right is actually more yellow in the RAW pic.) You might try another Film Mode--Natural or Scenery--and/or adjust the Saturation. But note that you can only adjust overall saturation, not just green.

Or just continue to shoot RAW and adjust in post - Mark

That bare patch on the right is some sand that washed out from the bank onto the aged wood chips. It does look slightly more "yellow" in the raw/developed photo.

I edited the post to indicate which is which. (I thought the photo name would show.)

Thanks, Jim

Here are two more photos that I took to explore color matching.

The photo above is "as taken".

The photo above was taken raw and developed.

I would appreciate any comments on the colors. (The raw/developed photo more closely matches what I think I saw.)

Thanks, Jim
