New take on old idea: gray cards

I was recently reading a book that had to do with getting color right in the digital age and was surprised to find that gray cards come in different 'colors' of gray.The trusty Kodak gray card I'd had since the early nineties turns out to be neutral in terms of exposure, but was never intended to be used for white balancing a digital exposure.I did some searching and settled on a new 'digital' gray card and did some experiments.When using the new card to create a custom white balance setting... continue reading

They are predators, dangerous to others but seems to be wiser then a human, kill only for food, sometimes to defend... continue reading

Just few thoughts about correct white balance ...

I have read many articles and reviews about white balance in photographs.

I believe this is true in portrait photography and when shooting in daylight conditions.... continue reading
