Re: Need some help. Z6 with high speed sync and color balance

Another thing to keep in mind, is the color influence of your flash modifier. Your sample images suggest that you used an umbrella or similar diffuser. I always get warmer tones when using any kind of modifier, as it cuts down on UV and far blue light. The 5600K figure is used to describe the color temp coming out of the flashtube, anything added to the light path will change the color characteristics. Older umbrellas will drop the color temp even more, as they yellow with age!.........................Jeff Barlowe

P.S. Bright Silver umbrellas have less effect on color temp.
