Don't Use Auto White Balance

While you may be tempted to rely on an Auto White Balance feature on your camera, don’t. These can be overly sensitive to things like a passing cloud. Instead, just keep an eye on your monitor or viewfinder while shooting.

Looking for an easy way to white-balance on a shoot? I just discovered the useful
Whibal White Balance Reference Cards.

Here's what I like:

  • Lightweight and single-card format.
  • Light Gray, certified to recommended Luminance
  • Includes Black and White Spots
  • Focus and Sharpness targets
  • Sturdy and Easy to Pack (it even floats)
  • Affordable
