LUMU 101: FLASH COLOR
As we learned in the previous blog, flash can be a very useful tool, not just technically to increase the quantity of light but also creatively, to amplify its quality.
In order to achieve proper color temperature in a given enviroment, the photographer must understand the ingredients that affect color.
To learn more additional information about color temperature in general, read our Color Temperature blog
SO, WHEN TO MEASURE FLASH COLOR?
When you are using one individual flash, the camera needs to establish only a single, consistent lightsource to measure white balance. But today we mostly shoot in RAW, meaning that we capture enough light information, that it can easily be adjusted in post production.
But that statement isn't quite true if we are using multiple lightsources. Whether you’re working in any combination of natural light, flash, studio lights etc, you’re exposed to much too many variables - and there is no reliable camera setting that considers all these factors.
LUMU & FLASH COLOR
With Lumu you can quickly read your flashes temperature or simultaneously measure color temperatures of both your flash and ambient light. If additional color filters are needed to achieve even results, Lumu lets you know which one (or two) to apply. All with a tap of a button.
JOB WELL DONE.
