An Important Lesson on White Balance Settings

Crocuses

When photographing crocuses on a sunny day, remember to change your white balance setting from "Indoor, Incandescent" to "Outdoor, Shady." Otherwise, you end up with blue-tinted photographs that look they are straight out of your dad's instamatic camera, circa 1968.

HOWEVER. If that happens? Go with it. Round the corners, fade the colors a bit and voila!

Instant vintage photo.

Gorsh, I love digital photography

Hope your day is as sunny as mine...the birds are chirping, the flowers are waking, the northern hemisphere is all abuzz with the promise of spring.

And yes, I know we all lost an hour of sleep over the weekend, but people? For my money? Having that extra hour of light at the end of the day is worth it.

Completely and totally worth it...

Thank you Mr. Franklin, Hudson, Willett
