Okay, after last week’s life changing discovery of the macro setting on my Canon Powershot I knew I had to join in this week’s show and tell at A Familiar Path and learn about white balance. Sweet Melissa is teaching us how to move past the auto setting on our digital cameras bless her soul, and on Monday’s we get to showcase what we learned.
Well, the lesson on white balance was posted last Wednesday and I am sorry to say it literally took me all week, until today, to find out even how to adjust the white balance on my camera. Sad, but true. I even enlisted dh’s help and between the two of us and the stupid manual we still couldn’t figure it out. I feel darn right stupid telling you this, especially since all I had to do was turn the little dial from Auto to Manual. That’s it! Melissa even said that in her tutorial and dumb me could not find the “M” on my camera. I finally found a website that had a detailed review of my specific camera with a picture for dummies like me. Sigh.
So now I am armed with knowledge…and no subjects to shoot. This is ds4’s reaction to “Wanna be in a photo shoot?”
My cat Katy. Now you will notice in the following pics that it seems as though she is frozen or possibly dead. Not the case, she’s just old and doesn’t move much. I know, it creeped me out too. Btw, this is the plain old auto white balance shot.
White balance. You, too, can master the power.
