    How to remove automatic color "correction" in Lightroom?

    Priscellie Level 1

      I did a shoot this morning with a rented infrared-converted Canon 6D, using a custom white balance from a photo.  The preview on the viewscreen and in the thumbnails in my Mac's Finder look exactly how I want them: a dreamlike green-brown.  However, when I import these RAW files into Lightroom (or Photoshop), the program automatically lays on an awful peachy effect that kills all the subtlety.  I'll click on a normal-looking thumbnail and it'll bring up the correct color for an instant as popup says "Loading...", then my lovely image is replaced with a peachy monstrosity.

      I've wrestled with Lightroom's sliders for hours, but I can't get the colors back the way I shot them.  I tried updating to the latest versions of CC, and no dice.  The colors look great when I open the accompanying JPG files, but I'd rather be able to do my edits with the flexibility of the RAW format.  And heck, I just want to understand the problem, so I avoid similar issues in the future!

       

      Thoughts?  Any input would be greatly appreciated!
