I am a new member.
When I’m trying to ID a plant new to me, I may take several photos (whole plant, leaf closeup, bloom, etc.). If at that moment there is enough sunlight, I will choose camera settings that don’t use flash. But if a few minutes later the light changes due to clouds or the sun is dropping behind a hill, I will switch to fill-in flash.
For my camera, the colors look different on nonflash vs the popup flash photos. Flash photos have an overall yellowish cast that editing the white balance post processing in Lightroom only partially fixes. (If there is a better way, I haven’t figured it out.)
I’m concerned that if I upload some flash & nonflash photos for one observation, people will think they are not worth ID-ing because I am breaking the rule about one plant per photo. Do ID-ers read comments and should I add an explanation?
At present, I’m not interested in carrying around an external flash that might give me “truer” color.
