Fotografia week 4

16 Nov

White balance was on the menu for our 4th photography class.  WB has always been something I’ve wanted to learn more about.  I was always so confused by those blueish photos that would appear in my view finder from time to time.

Now I’m finally familiar with the term grigio medio and I actually understand the theory behind it (I think).  There was lots of talk about kelvin colour numbers, warm and cold photos and tungsten lights.  I’m ashamed to admit it but it’s the first time I’ve ever even heard the word tungsten.

Our assignment this week was to take different kinds of warm and cold photos (using the WB features on our cameras of course)Cold photo on a bright and warm sunny day.

My garden shed looking pretty arctic.

I’m hoping with all the orange hues in this photo it would be classified as warm.

This photo was taken in the pitch dark on a walk down to the lake.  It was actually T who took it.

    I like these blogs because they help me to look at photography differently. The buoys on your shed are so reminiscent of Nova Scotia shore scenes.

    They are indeed from NS. I love my buoys.
