I don't have a solution to this problem, however, I think it may have something to do with the way we see color too....( or
does this sound too strange ? )  I just bought a digital camera and one of my first subjects was an African Violet which I
thought was deep blue.  When I took the photo it turned out a deep purple....of course I blamed the camera.  Next morning
I took another photo of the Violet against a white paper (of course the light was different then, too) and at that time I noticed
the Violet was indeed a deep purple.  When I added a blue box and photographed the Violet the difference was very obvious
in the photo.  I experiment with these two items in different types of lighting and lighting really makes a big difference.
I hope you aren't too unhappy with World Premier, if you relied on my photo to make your choice.  I intent to take another
photo with this new camera and see what the difference is....(I still remember it as a blue iris).
P.S.  the photo shows both objects on a white piece of paper with the morning sun shining on them.

Subject: [iris-photos] Query: Camera colors

I have an Olympus D-560, digital camera.  The camera seems to record most colors faithfully, except deep purples which it wants to make into deep blues.  World Premier would be an example.  I remember Sandra Barss's photos from last year, quite blue and for her, in her soils/Manitoba climate, etc it may well be.  I bought the iris.  My blooms this year are deep colored but a bit more purple, but they photograph as a straight dark blue.
I can, vaguely, correct this with Corel Photo-Paint which allows changing only one color, but that doesn't seem to be the most sophistocated solution, as an iris may have purples and blues in it, the photo shows just blues, I change the color and I've lost the real blues.
Does anyone have a solution?
Thanks in advance,
Sharon Engstrom
