It's All About the Light
Neither of these photos are worth sharing. Anywhere. Except to make a technical point.
These are adjacent frames. Taken less than a second apart. I changed nothing in the camera settings.
Neither have been edited for anything other than brightness.
The top photo is close to being normal color balance. The bottom photo is too warm.
Blame the fluorescent lights that vary color and brightness in a 60-cycle oscillation that can give you these results when the shutter speed is high and catches the varying light.
I shoot RAW so the color can be corrected. However, there are several frames where the colors are different on sections of the frame.
A lower shutter speed would have balanced the color better but shooting dancers sometimes requires a higher shutter speed.
