Having problems with your Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens ?

Losing green / torquoise tones


\015 Hi, I am an artist and have a Nikon D80. I am trying to photograph a wave painting of mine which has a blend of torquoise and blue tones but when I photograph it I completely loses the torquoise tone, they just look blue.\015

Answers :

I'm betting you just have to adjust the white balance properly.  The D80 allows you to set the white balance against a grey target.  There are two ways of doing this.  First, you can put a reference grey target right on the painting, set it, and then remove the target while using the white balance you just set.  Alternatively, you can cover the lens with a diffuser of some sort, like a piece of white paper and hold the camera right where the painting will be, but pointed back towards where the light is coming from so that the diffuser is being bathed in that same light.\015\012\015\012\015\012
\015\012In case you don't know how to set the preset white balance, I suggest checking the manual.  I use a D70s, so the procedure may be very slightly different on the two cameras, but the idea is the same.  The key is that if you do this, you are pretty much guaranteed to get proper colors every time - not just now, but anywhere.  I do this often.  All that is required is a perfectly neutral patch (white to black, but with no color at all) that is being lit with the same light as you are trying to photograph in.  It takes about 5 seconds and presto - perfect white balance.  Note that this is for making pictures that look EXACTLY LIKE THEY WOULD IN PURE WHITE LIGHT.  So, it isn't for capturing proper sunsets, etc.\015\012

Colour On recent photographs there's a distinct green tinge, particularly noticeable on outdoor shots. I can correct this in an editor, usually by reducing the green a little and increasing the blue level. The green tinge seems to be consistent, not just occasional photos. I can't find any obvious way of dealing with this in the camera manual, unless the white balance can be used to remedy it. I notice there's a footnote: 'The colour tones may vary somewhat depending on the shooting condition

Problematic Camera I have a EasyShare DX4530 which has suddenly started acting funny.
