Week 2:: Study of Light: Daylight Bulbs

Daylight Bulb, Auto White Balance
This photo was taken at night.

Arrow & Apple was having a 50% off sale on their lighting e-course, so I figured her photography is absolutely gorgeous, why not try and learn a thing or two?

While Week 1 was for gathering supplies, this week was for using daylight bulbs. I took random photos with two set-ups, and did three white balances (Auto, Incandescent, Daylight) for both bulbs (soft white, 5000 kelvin). And this is what we have, completely unedited!

Incandescent Bulb: Auto (L) & Incandescent (R) White Balance

I already knew that using the wrong auto white balance setting with the wrong kind of light would be weird, but just so you know: if you'd like an orange photo, use an incandescent bulb with sunlight white balance and if you'd like a blue photo, use a daylight bulb with incandescent white balance.

I love the light and color in your photos...the shots came out wonderful!!! I miss the days where I could hop over to the studio to paint and work on various color studies. Have a great week!
