Umm, ever heard of white balance lol? You can take gorgeous photos with lights on if you know the basics of using a decent camera.

I have a camera that does manual white balance, (Nikon Coolpix L32, 20.1mp), but most folks here aren't going to invest $100+ on a camera when they have a phone that has one built in and already cost them $100/mth to use.

My camera also has no GPS so don't have to worry about it embedding location data in the EXIF file attached to digital photos. That data is stripped from phone pics uploaded to the site but it's a good idea to turn off location services on a phone when taking pics that could lead rippers or cops to your grow. If your phone is set to backup those pics are in the cloud with all data intact and your real name linked to them anyways. Easily accessible by Google et al.

Never thought about location data on pics in that way, but you’re right! If the goal is to stay incognito it definitely pays to have a normal old camera lying around.

Leds turned on not using filters, set a custom white balance and be done 100% every time. If you camera/phone etc can shoot in raw use a greycard 8 bucks on fleabay for reference white balance. If you cant use raw then yeah use filters.

I just use my grow room sunglasses as a filter in front of my phone camera. Setting the balance on the phone works too but I forget and start taking other pictures with that setting lol.

Looking great and it's normal for old fan leaves to yellow later in flowering. Do not add extra N now! More K and S is fine but not huge amounts. I'd just give them some Epsom salts at this stage to get the extra S to help with resin production.

New to growing too or just this site?

I found a great spot to download FREE POT BOOKS . I downloaded a grow bible first and got lots more. Books look great and complete like the real ones I have here. No web site but just a page of links. Just right click on what you want and then "Save Link As" to download so they don't open first as many are 50+ megs. They got lots. Enjoy.
