I started learning to draw back in September, but I have been pretty tentative with watercolour. The reason for this is that I didn’t want to try and learn too many skills at once. I’ve been focusing on drawing animals and people from lots of different angles, but I haven’t really attempted backgrounds.
In this photography tutorial I explain white balance as an introduction to a longer post I plan to write on colour theory. White balance is a key setting in photography, but it’s something that beginners often overlook. If you have ever found yourself looking through photographs you’ve taken indoors under artificial lighting or outside under street lighting and wondered why they’re so yellow and what you can do about it, then this tutorial will help you. This tutorial will also be useful if you’re an artist or Etsy seller who needs to photograph true to life images of artwork or products for your online portfolio, Instagram page or shop.
