Default Re: It's Purple, not Blue!

If the white balance doesn't work the culprit may be your daylight bulbs.

There are several types of daylight bulbs and they have varying temperatures. You know how if you take a picture next to a regular lamp it's too yellow? The opposite happens with the daylight bulbs and its too blue.

An ideal bulb temp is between 5,000-7,000. Even then you may get some blue hues but after that it really gives a blue tint.

It should say the temp on the box of the light bulb.
