    Default Why does blonde hair appear red?


    I have no photography expertise, so hope someone could help with this question:-

    Whenever I take a photo of my daughter (indoors) her hair appears a a lot more auburn/ red than blonde as it appears to the human eye. It does have a hint of red from the human eye but nowhere near as much as on photo.

    I have a lumix f30 recently purchased( which i'm not blaming)
    I have tried various scene modes ( not a lot of impovement)
    As said it can happen indoors with natural light behind subject or indoors in low light.
    How can I correct this?
    By altering settings on camera ?
    having any natural light behind myself?
    Is it the flash bringing out the red in her hair?

    Any tips, help or articles for info would be much appreciated!

    Hi. It sounds like you have the wrong white balance set. If you go to your menu and change the white balance it should clear it up

    hi ive just read this on your model

    White balance can be set to Automatic, Daylight, Cloudy, Shade, Tungsten or a custom preset calculated by taking a reading from a specific subject. There’s no manual control over contrast, sharpness, saturation or noise reduction, but the FX30 does at least offer five colour modes to choose from: Standard, Natural, Vivid, Cool and Warm.
    so best to try taken a custom reading of the white balance
    that should help
    all the best
