Hi all in ClubSNAP

May I seek for your advise in this problem. Most of the time I shoot, the color does not turn out as I want (the brightness is ok). Do I understand correctly that adjusting Aperture, Shutting Speed and IS only help us to control the picture brightness so which factor will be responsible for the photo color ? Does the LCD display the picture color correctly (how close is it comparing with the real color when we print the photo out)

So normally, when you guys shoot, do you keep the picture color as it is or you will do post-processing to tweak the color.

PS: I mostly use my canon 500D with my canon F1.8 50mm lens.

Thanks for your advice.

Have you tried adjusting the in-camera Contrast and Saturation?

Colour should be quite closely related to your white balance settings.
Depending on how fussy you are with colour accuracy, the LCD monitor could be sufficiently accurate.
If you really want good accuracy, probably you can try to shoot in RAW format, then view on a calibrated (to what spec/profile? also important) monitor, and then ensure that the print shop is following this standard profile as well.

Such attention to detail is required especially if you are shooting professionally and your clients demand it.

you have to nail the white balance, either in camera or at post, auto WB maybe good enough for some general usages, but definably not the ideal choice if you are particular about your works.

and if your monitor is not calibrated, you won't able to get correct results with any post editing works.
