    Industrial Photography project (help needed)

    **(Edited)

    Hello,

    I have been tasked with taking pictures of the inner workings of steel works using a high end Bridge camera (Lumix FZ 150), I tried to talk them into a DSLR but they were having none of it This is not something I have any real experience of and wonder if anyone could help me with a small asepct.

    The project involves lots of indoor shots of electrical arcs and spinnng and moving parts which so far, and without flash, the Camera has coped with admirably, until I came to take a picture of glowing, freshly welded metal. In every picture I have taken the glowing metal has turned out a sickly pink instead of the correct Deep red.

    Is there anything I can do to correct this without** resorting to Photoshop?

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    Below is a prime example: -

    The issue is you have 2 light sources in the photo. The overhead lights and the hot weld.

    Each light source has a different color temperature and the camera can only cope with 1 light source color temperature at a time.

    Just what I needed. I have a way to go but I'm getting much better colours now.

    Some cameras have issues recording very hot metals due to hot metals emitting a CRAPLOAD of infrared. This likely is contributing to the purplish casts in your photos though white balance is a factor too.
