Portrait of a chicken

18 Nov

Today I went and bought yet another lens cap.  I seem to lose them on a weekly basis lately.  This time the shop owner convinced me to buy the white balance lens cap.  He says it makes using the custom WB feature a breeze because you don’t have to cart around a gray card.  Sounded good to me.  You just snap a photo with the lens on and set it.  I tried it this afternoon for the first time and this is the result.Doesn’t seem very accurate in terms of colour and light to me.  But I actually like the effect. It gives Chrysanthemum a very surreal, Alfred Hitchcock look.   Here’s one using the gray card method. Colours are more realistic.  Creepy chicken though.

    I think the `white cap`chicken picture is actually creepier.
