Hi Everyone,
I bought a Lee Big Stopper some while ago and only just got around to using it a few days ago. All the images came out with quite a pronounced `blue` colour cast . Anyone know what I am doing wrong ?

Big-stoppers are known to have a cool colour cast. That said, this could be made more obvious depending on the conditions of your shoot, and the camera settings used. E.g. what is your WB set to? Are you shooting in RAW: if so WB is easily adjusted in post-processing.

WB is set to AWB. Shooting in daylight ,mid afternoon so should be O.K. I am shooting in raw so can adjust it, but just wondered if there was something wrong with the filter to give the blue cast. I was under the impression that Lee BS were supposed to be fairly neutral, -that's why I thought they were so expensive.

Most give a blue cast - albeit I've never found it a problem.

I have a B+H 10 stop and have had no problems with colour cast. I have used it both indoors and early in the morning. You could try a different time of day or set the WB to the prevailing light conditions to see if that has any effects.

I get a blue cast too, shoot RAW and no problem to correct in processing.

Thanks for all the help. I am obviously not alone in this. As you all say, can easily be corrected in raw converter. I was just a bit concerned that I had a `duff` filter.
