White Balance

Which camp are you in with regards to white balance? Do you try to get it right when you press the shutter button or do you work on WB in the digital darkroom? We will cover several products and topics that will help you get better and more accurate color, including:

  • Preset WB Settings
  • RAW
  • ExpoDisc
  • WhiBal
  • Gray Cards

Wedding Invitations

For my recent wedding, we created 6 different invitations. The theme of the celebration was Hollywood, so we photographed scene recreations from movies such as Hero, In the Mood for Love, Top Gun, James Bond, Lord of the Rings, and Casablanca. You can view the invitations here.

I will cover how we went about creating each shot, from location scouting, equipment choices, post-processing techniques, and printing.
