Artificial light is a different colour than daylight. Our eyes compensate, so we don't notice it much. Most digital cameras can compensate too, but whether they do or not depends on the settings. The setting you want to investigate is color balance. If this is set to daylight, it will give an orange cast to pictures taken in tungsten lighting, and a greenish cast to pictures taken in flourescent light. If it is set to artificial light, pictures taken in daylight will have a bluish cast. The best setting for most people is Auto, if your camera has it. That will let your camera decide, and usually it will get it about right.

How can (I) avoid blue-tinted photos?


Check your white balance - looks as if you are set to tungsten and using camera in daylight.

My pictures are coming out yellow, what am I doing wrong?


If you look at the white balance for your camera in the menu settings, you should find one for tungsten lighting, which will help. Don't forget to change it back when shooting outdoors. Alternatively, most photo editing software will enable you to remove the yellow cast before printing.

Camera takes blue photos


You sure you did put the camera to fully automatic? Because I don't know what model you have, I can't check the manual, to see if you could adjust the white balance. It has not much to do with ISO, but with white balance. Sure you did not select something like scene inside. or scene in tungsten?

Yellow tint on pictures when on Auto


I have assumed that you are trying to take photos in normal daylight. Check the menu for the setting of 'White Balance' it may not be set to 'Auto'. You may also have changed the colour temperature setting. That should be set to 0 or auto. Make sure that there is no colour tint set anywhere in the menus/effects.

All pictures have blue tint with T70 35mm SLR


Silly question, is there a filter over the lens? Some folks when using use daylight film in tungsten lighting will use a blue filter. Is the film expired past a few years? If those are all no, then it may be your lab, my suggestion is to contact them. With film there is little to go wrong, you shoot they develop. The magic occurs during developing and printing.

Green tint on flash photographs


without color correction software on your pc, you may get green tint from the flouresent flash, or use a "filter" over your lens.More expensive digital cams correct for this, back in the 35mm days, I had color correction filters I interchanged during shooting under other than daylight conditions,i.e., incadescent; flourescent;ect.

My indoor photos all have a greeninsh yellow effect


That's caused by lighting. More specifically by the type of lighting in use there. Every different type of light puts out a certain color range, some pink, some green, some yellow, some bluish.

How do you fix it?

1. use flash. Flash puts out a bluish light color balanced for daylight. Most film available today is color balanced for daylight. Problem here is that on camera flashes are weak and only reach about 10 feet. The rest of the picture will be greenish yellow. More powerful flashes extend that 10 feet based on the power they have, and may provide enough coverage. The reach of the flash is also determined by the film ASA.

2. use a filter on the lens. Get an FLD (flourescent-daylight) filter.

3. Scan the negs to digital and correct with Photoshop or another photo editing program.

Pictures have a blue colour


You have not said w2hether these are daylight pics or pics taken inside under halogen lights. The later requires a blue filter.

Daylight pics that show blue are set to the wrong Kelvins in your menu. Set the camera back to factory settings and make a note of the Kelvins ( temperature scale) that is the standard setting.. You can manipulate the color of the pics taken in certain light by moving the scale upward to warm the pic in overcast situations or down in bright light to remove red cast that some light or lights ( bulbs) tend tp create in pics.

Using filters


Both filters perform the same task.

The filters reduce excess red tones that affect daylight film when shooting early morning or late evening. They are also effective if your flash exposures are too 'warm'. The filters I believe have a filter factor of 1.3 and require 1/3 f-stop of additional light.
