This week's lesson was a bit off kilter. We left the Auto setting forever (thank God) in exchange for messing with white balance. I took the same photo eight times, each with a different white balance setting. The result? Chocolate chip cookies looking fine as hell.
The white balance settings (in order of appearance); custom, flash, white fluorescent, tungsten, cloudy, shade, daylight, auto. The cookies; delicious. I could eat/bake these all day.
I wanted to photograph specifically in my apartment because the lighting sucks. Seriously. Until I bought a lighted mirror my makeup looked like it was done by someone who had never seen blush before. It was ridiculous. Cue me trying to learn/correct the problem with my camera. And eat some goodies while I'm at it.
Can't promise next week's assignment will have food, guess you'll have to tune in to find out!
