i had a minor triumph over white balance

White balance — the process of correcting for color in your light, basically — is something I’ve struggled with the whole time I’ve been shooting. I understand the concept of it, but it was rare that I could actually make it work. Sometimes I could sort of maybe get some red out of my shots in-camera, but completely? Nope.

So imagine my delight last Sunday when I, after having read like crazy for the past two weeks, actually adjusted my white balance correctly. The top image was my first shot; the bottom, my last.

BAM. Learned something in September.
