I am having trouble getting a consistent background color while shooting in a light box. I am using Savage Paper (Gray Tint) and the products I am shooting are coming up so dark. How can this be inside of a light box? In Lightroom I have to increase exposure and contrast but then I lose color/detail of the product just to get the backgrounds to match/align for consistency. What am I doing wrong? Rose is desired color background. Poinsettia is what I am getting instead.
1) Switch camera to fully Manual Mode (S & A & ISO) and set the exposure to render a 'correctly exposed' image. (The paper Grey looks correct). Always use this exposure for the same lighting in the light box.
2) Set camera to a fixed White Balance (Not 'Auto'). (Essential if shooting JPGs.!)
