Matt says… Your issues with reds may be to do with a number of factors, Stephen. It’s worth looking at your white balance settings and making sure you’re set to Cloudy, or whatever setting is relevant to your current lighting conditions. If that’s all correct, the washed-out reds may be related to the metering within the scene, so try switching to centre-weighted metering. The Nikon D610 is definitely more than capable of capturing reds in a far more vibrant fashion than are present in the sample image you sent us, so otherwise I’d recommend under-exposing slightly as the image you provided looks a touch over-exposed.
The reds don’t seem to register very well in my images. What’s wrong, and
what can I do about it? I use a D610
and shoot in RAW
The reds in this image are coming through more as pinks, but there could be a number of reasons why this is happening
