White Balance

Lisa Spangler has a new challenge at her blog. Check it out!! Last week she put together a white balance tutorial. If your card picture rarely comes out the way your card should look, you might want to check out Lisa’s tutorial and test your skills by doing the challenge!

On a normal day, I would just shoot in RAW and then go into Photoshop CS3 and do some more editing. I’d change the white balance a tad bit, edit the hightlight/lighting, contrast and stuff to make the photo stand out a bit. But for this I resisted and here are the photos as is. I hope the photos turned out ok though… my Mac needs to go to the shop and I haven’t had the chance to take it in so I’ve been using the laptop and my color and brightness isn’t quite calibrated. Oh well… soon, soon. After baby’s here I’ll do some major errands with kids in tow {::SMILES}.

I think the results would be more dramatic if I did the photo shoot at night but I wanted to get this done and posted… in case I have a baby ya know {::SMILES}. So here’s mine…

Ok, have a great one!!! Still waiting for the babe to come out…

Material: PTI polka dots basics stamps (embossed on the base but you can’t really see it), ribbon, ink, and twine; pattern paper by Matahati from Scrap Orchard, and sentiment by Stampin’ Up! For the scallops I just used my corner rounder and Crop-a-dile and the dots was done with the Cuttlebug + Swiss dots template.

  1. It is amazing the difference using the custom white balance. The pink ribbon and the green matting are so much brighter and crisper. Cute card. Don't you just love the Swiss dot folder for the Cuttlebug. I use mine all the time.
