need help photographing 'flourescent' colors
Aug 10, 2012

I can not seem to capture flourescent pink painted toy car, capture the intensity of the color that is. I have tried flash, shade, sunlight, CFL photo lighting, etc.

I can get the color tone correct but not the saturation. I'm using my Canon 60D. I'd like to capture the shots realistically before I go to Photoshop to start making adjustments. I have tried in camera adjustments with white balance and saturation, but am not capturing what the eye sees.

Is there a trick to capturing flourescent colors?
