Getting intimate with my camera

I have reached the point where I actually want to know what I am doing when I pick up my camera. It is time to get intimate. Now is when you need to get hold of your camera’s manual and get right up in it. And that’s exactly what I did.

Look for White Balance. It’s the easiest of the manual settings to learn about. Adjusting the white balance will help you to get the colours right in your photos.

When you take a picture of the same subject with different white balance settings you will see things like this happening:

See the difference? The bottom shot has far too much magenta in it. The top colour is much cleaner. Figuring out white balance is as east as taking a few test shots.

The other good news is it will make you feel like a super smart photographer because it’s so simple to learn. Yep, that’s me, super smart photographer. Never mind the fact that I haven’t yet figured out Photoshop.
