A year ago I wrote a blog about Zeroing Out before using your camera each day or shoot. I have been doing much better since I published the post. Lately, I have been trying to get better photos by using custom white balance. Thus, I have run into a new issue to remember as you can tell by the two photos below.
While the custom white balance worked well in the dining room which had incandescent lighting. When I took the photo on the left, I got this blue shifted photo. This table was near the entrance with light from the hallway spilling in which used tungsten lighting. I happened to think I better check the LCD at the time and switched to auto white balance. It’s not perfect either but much closer to the real colors. I can further adjust the photo in post-processing and it will take much less time, too.
I will continue to work with white balance adjustments as I find my photography is much improved when I use it correctly. Accordingly, I will be much more aware of changing light as I do so.
