Warm Up Those Tones
Have you ever noticed that your digital pictures sometimes have a cool, clammy look or feel to them? If so, you’re not alone. The default white balance setting for digital cameras is
auto, which is fine for standard snapshots, but tends to be a bit on the “cool” side.
When shooting outdoor portraits and sunny landscapes, try changing your white balance setting from
cloudy. That’s right, cloudy. Why? This adjustment is like putting a mild warming filter on your camera. It increases the reds and yellows resulting in richer, warmer pictures.
Give it a try! (And yes, those are surfers in the water…)
