Lisa Spangler has a new challenge on her blog which combines cardmaking and product photography. The challenge is to make a card that is mostly white, and then photo it using the custom white balance setting on your camera vs the auto setting.
Here's what I came up with.
Much brighter/warmer than what my camera usually gives me (2nd photo below) and much less harsh than the corrections I get from Iphoto (3rd picture). What I was doing before was using the auto white balance on my camera, getting the dark, grayish picture (like the 2nd photo) and then in Elements using "auto smart fix" and "auto lighten" to warm and brighten it up. White cards are tough! Actually so are black cards and kraft cards, and those are my 3 favorite colors.
