How many of you have a camera with an Auto White Balance (AWB) setting that you never use? I don’t use mine as much as I could/should, but I’d like to take a minute to show you what it can do. I was shooting an old newspaper under tungsten lights this morning, and the “Tungsten Light, 3200K” setting gave the best colour (but still not good enough). Forgetting that I’d changed the AWB, I took this first shot of the driveway – yikes!!
I then re-set the AWB to “Shade, 7000K” and this was the result:
So, if you’ve never experimented with it, pull out the manual have a look at what it can do.
The reason for taking the photo(s) was that, despite the way it looks at the moment (and it’s -7°C), I’m hoping that this will be the first motorcycle-riding day of the year.
