Hi,

I've been looking for a [solution to a ] lightroom and photoshop issue in my photo studio for days.

 

When I photograph tethered, the colors change after about 1 sec that they are imported into Lightroom. Everything looks normal on the screen of my nikon D750. When I open the photos in photoshop everything is normal, but when I open raw files in adobe raw, the colors also change. When I open jpegs in photoshop the colors remain normal. The color profiles are all set to adobe rgb.

 

Does anyone know how to handle this?

This is normal.

 

You first see the camera-generated jpeg preview.

 

After a second or so ACR has had time to render its own preview, based on whatever default settings you have in ACR.

 

It's important you understand that these two are not supposed to match, and never will. The processing pipelines are very different. There is no "correct" way to render a raw file, it's all down to interpretation. That's why you have the sliders in ACR.

 

A raw file does not have a color space, until it's encoded into one in the raw converter (e.g. ACR). The camera setting for color space is entirely irrelevant, unless you shoot jpegs.

Thanks a lot! This was really helpfull. 

I got it but still don't understand why even with a colorcard I can't get my colors right.

Is a colorcard only working for jpegs then?

D Fosse is right,

 

Your camera produces an optimised JPEG along with the RAW.

A RAW file is flatter and less coloured allowing you the leeway to adjust it rather that accept the camera manufacturer's JPEG optimised version.

The fact is, it offers is a plus point in practice

 

Photographing a colour chart allows you to use it to build a profile to optimise camera output. Is that what you are doing?

 

here is some reading on ICC profiles and how they work for you to provide accurate colour through the digital workflow: https://www.colourmanagement.net/advice/about-icc-colour-profiles/
