Tip of the Week

White Balance
A friend got a new camera and says it isn't good since the color of some photos are not natural; sometimes it looks too "yellow" for indoor photos, and sometimes it looks too blue. Actually different lighting has different "temperature", the human brain is capable of making automatic adjustments while the camera's "auto white balance" may not be as good. When the camera fails to select the correct setting, the photo's color is going to shift. So, when you review your photo and see the color of the picture is off, you should try to select the correct white balance setting for the camera yourself. Just to name a few, there's Tungsten Bulb, Sunset, Fluorescent Lamps, Flash, Daylight. These are the common white balance settings for most cameras. Read your camera manual and find out how to adjust the settings and select the correct one for the lighting condition you are going to shoot.
