Hey guys -

TLDR; try to set your camera's 'White Balance' setting to the same frequency as your grow light specturm.

You probs already know this but if you open the camera on an android, go to "more" and then select "Pro Mode" you can set the white balance to match the spectrum of your grow lights and get rid of that shitty yellow tint real easy.

On my S10+ it's like this (YMMV):

My LED's are 3500k spectrum so you can see where I set the white balance accordingly:

The difference is easy to see. Regular first, WB set on second

Sorry if this is already common knowledge and I'm sure the settings look different on different phone models, I can't help you with that. Also I clearly suck at photography this post is solely about not seeing that shit yellow tint in every picture.
