Thanks for the information.

I got that info about 2 years ago from someone on here who linked a video on the red channel - which led me down the rabbit hole of all the raw digger / raw histogram stuff - all because I started taking similar types of pictures.

If you did in fact take this picture in RAW, for your own interest and education, you should try and first play with the red luminosity channel to see if you can bring the flowers back from blowing out. Generally you can't do this is you have people in the pictures because playing with the reds (luminosity or Saturation) starts to really mess with skin tones once you move them by more than a little - without people, i.e. flowers, it is almost always something I would do.


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

the red channel is almost always the first to blow out - and when you have a lot of red flowers, with green in the background, you often have to underexpose by almost a stop if you want to save the all the reds - always best in the future, when facing a similar scene, to look at the RGB histogram and check the Red Channel specifically

good tip, thanks


Cheers, Damien

Yes, I have this in raw just can't work with it on my laptop. I think what is probably a bigger issue is I shot this using the tungsten setting in white balance. When I get home I'll change that in Raw and see what happens.

Yep - the white balance setting in the raw file is just metadata - it doesn't change how the camera sees light or the contents of the raw file. However, the white balance is "baked" into the JPEG, so a really extreme white balance (that's "wrong" for the scene) can result in a JPEG that's hard to rescue, because the colour data in the pixels has been too badly shifted.


Camera, some lenses, too little time, too little talent

Now your talking my speak-Foxglove=digitalis :) and a reminder (well at least in the States) that most any trumpet shaped bloom means serious toxicity within, though tamed in this case into Lanoxin,
a classic drug for CHF.

Never seen one here mate, even in botanic gardens. I shot that one in the UK in pouring rain

I've been chomping at the bit to get this lens. Looked at Canon Refurb store, it's there for $1583, but it's out of stock!! Might be a good thing in the long run lol!!
