Knitting Photo Finish; Or, Tricking a Smart Phone

Smart Phone photography isn't entirely Smart.

I've been playing games at tricking it into capturing better color. Well, different color.

Sunny day indoor location and truer color:

Same location, same time and day - totally faded out:

Fluorescent light, early evening - not great color:

Moments later, having figured out I can fake out the light meter by pointing it at the light and taking the picture quickly - better color:

Taken earlier before said experiment - crazily disappointing color:

Much better color. Also, THIS COSTUME PIECE is DONE. Done for a different show than the one for which it was started, but hey, done is good.
