We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
My niece has a friend whose camera is going through a green period. It's a white balance thing. I beat the love out of it in PS with a magenta filter to win back some color balance.
You're shooting blue-tinted scenes on an incandescent setting on your camera. Incandescent lights throw off a red hue, which is balance with increased blue saturation in camera. A heavy warming filter in Photoshop will correct the blues...as will using the appropriate color setting on your camera. What is it? The 'night' setting? I don't know...I manually adjust white balance most of the time. Good luck (and nice pictures).
My niece was liking the green thing, too. I've been doing some Fauxtoshop cross-processing stuff...you know, with serious color shifts like when you develop E-6 emulsions in C-41 processing...so I asked her if the heavy green was intentional. She hasn't spoken to me since, but then she's a kid. Anyway, color reproduction and saturation intensity is subjective. I'm cool. Besides, lately I'm into some projects using serious low-key imaging and muted, moody colors. Not everyone's cup of tea.
My monitor recently conked out, and before I get to dealing with it, I am using an older monitor which had bad color settings. I kept fiddling and fiddling with the settings on both computer and monitor to try to get the color right. Less bad was the best I could do.
Then, on the umpteenth time that I started up the computer, the monitor automatically adjusted its settings, and apparently also the settings in the computer. I had previously tried "auto" settings on the monitor, to no avail.
It could be something "wrong" with the camera or sensor, but I suspect resetting the camera to the default will fix it.
Find the setup menu on your Lumix, and then keep hitting "down" until you get the "reset" menu.
We must have been within speaking distance on that last shot. The women driving the minivan was also Amish.
That's rare, Amish normally just ride. The buggy shot is true of a large fraction of the local Amish, but I doubt it is a majority. The next county over, Holmes, is the center of Amish culture in Ohio. More buggies than minivans there.
If you're interested, Paul Gaus up in Wooster has written a series of detective stories centered on the Holmes Co. Amish. For further info, see:
