So first off, this is Raw, straight out of camera, the only adjustments that were made is a standard Import preset that I use. Shot @ 85mm Siggy 1.4, @ 1.8 ISO 2500 @ 1000th.

Notice how the right side of the image is suppppper warm, the left side is a bit more neutral. Can anyone explain that to me? There were just long fluorescents and a window to her left side about 15' away in the room, just a side room at a church. Any thoughts on why this is? Happened to a lot of images.

Fluorescent lights blink and change colors. Anything shot over 1/50th of a second will have very inconsistent and wildly different color temperatures. If you shoot with a slower SS, you'll be slower than the blinks and get all the color variations in one shot, resulting in a much more consistent light.

I'm guessing it's a mix of white balances. This always happens to me when I have a mix of window light and flourecents.

Never knew that! I always thought it was another light source causing it

When I shoot a burst of images at my local hockey rink, I get a red shift in tones due to the lights cycling. Its funny to me because in the sequence you'll see the red start on the left side and move to the right over 2-3 images.

Now that that's settled, why write "siggy" when sigma has the exact same amount of letters.

It's the timing/frequency of the fluorescent lights. Slow your shutter speed down and the problem goes away.

edit: Tony beat me to it...he's too fast.

You have a light leak, better go get your camera checked out ASAP

Ugh, WB under fluorescent lights can be nasty, I prefer to overpower them with flash where possible. Good to know that you can shoot under 1/50 for more even lighting - thanks!

Best solution for flouros is an air rifle.

Knew there had to be someone with something stupid to say. Couldn't be a message board without it.

Big shot over here is too good for the small town church.

I hate florescents, and always ask about them at the venues. Though, for the most part clients don't know =(

Yeah, I've heard that too. Different fluorescents will cast diff WB.
