#81 – White Balance Nightmare!!

I’d only had the camera a few weeks when I took this, so I suppose that’s my excuse for not fathoming out how to take a manual white balance for this scene. In actual fact, i struggle the whole night with the sodium vapour lighting, but for the most part I was able to correct it in Photoshop by simply adjusting the colour balance – there was way too much yellow, so I simply increased the amount of blue (and thereby decreased the yellow) and voila an accurate representation of reality.

However, for the life of me, I cannot get anything out of Photoshop that I like, so I’ve simply left it as it is, as I kind of like it this way. While the lesson from this is to learn how to take a manual white balance, sometimes, not being accurate and lifelike can make an interesting change from the norm!
