So here's the funky before. The Olive Garden had some strange orange light going on that night. The setting sun, the reflection of the marinara sauce, who knows? But no matter how much I changed my manual settings, the above picture of our children who should or should not have come along to our anniversary meal was about as good as I could get.
The tutorial said to take a picute of a napkin, kleenex, white card to get your custom settings. This happens to be the napkin that the numerous breadsticks we consumed were wrapped in. Lovely, right? I'll be sure to copyright it. I call it The Greasy Breadstick Napkin.
Then go to the menu on the camera, find custom white balance - select - and it politely asks do you want to use this picture to set your white balance and you say
you betcha yes and then you're all ready to take your next shot. Which was this:
What a difference, huh? Now if you are going for mood and want to keep the marinara lighting effect - well not sure how that works. But look, it even works on MadFish.
