    Hi, I am new to the forum and new to photography. I am having problem when I photograph a subject with white. The white looks like it has a glowing blue halo. Any suggestions? :D

    It's likely from purple fringing or chromatic aberration (CA) in your lens.

    If you post an example we could be more specific.

    Oh, the brand and model of lens would help too.

    Anyone else find the humor in the lens being named the Spectrum, only to have CA/ fringe excessively? My guess would be the same without an example to see what you mean.
