Canon Rebel t3i



"Hi, I have the canon rebel t3i. it generally is good, but I am trying to take pictures of products like cosmetics or bottles and the color is very off from the actual item. How do I fix that? "

Thank for you question about the color balance on a Rebel t3i.

I personally shoot everything in RAW format and use the "k" setting for color balance. I match the color temperature to the lighting conditions and then tweak it in Photoshop lightroom or Camera Raw.

Your best bet is set the white balance using a gray card. Here is a useful article on how to set the white balance: Setting white balance on t3i.

Good Luck
