It DOES make a difference!

I have been playing around , trying to get an accurate photo of the Red Iris piece, fairly unsuccessfully till now. I was at the camera store yesterday talking about proper floodlighting etc and the man I spoke with ( actually LISTENED to!!) reminded me that I have a custom white balance setting on my camera- Canon S100. So, DH and I came home and figured it out and - voila- I have pics now that accurately represent the colours of this piece. At the risk of boring you all to tears, here they are . Have a look back at some of the Iris posts and see the difference. I can see a HUGE diff. Can you? Look at your cameras and check your white balance. I had been using the auto settings but this is MUCH better!







Accuracy at last! Try it! You'll like it!!

  1. Now you have me wondering if my Canon PowerShot has such a setting. Must dig out the manual and see if I can translate it from the Greek! Thanks, Carolyn!

  2. Spec...tac...u....lar! I love it, Mom! The quilting on it is just stunning -- and the colors are absolutely gorgeous (in all their more accurate glory). You have done a thoroughly lovely job on this piece.

  3. That shiny blue is especially spectacular. I wish I could see it in the 'flesh' so to speak. You have such a talent!
