White Balance

These are some test shots I took to show the difference between color temperture settings on a canon digital camera. White balance is important to get the right colors in an image.
The above was taken on the auto white balance setting on the camera.


This one was taken on Daylight settings and looks a little cooler....you can see a little of the blue tones.



This was taken with a Flourescent setting and the blue shows much more. Flourescent is low on the Kelvin scale, the lower you get the cooler the image.


This was taken with the Tungsten setting, the lowest camera setting on the Kelvin scale (unless you input the white balance manually) at about 3200.
This was taken at the Shade setting which is about 7000 on the Kelvin scale. You can see the warmer look of this photo compared to the ones above.

Stock Photos

Photography used to just be a hobby of mine, but eventually I decided to make it my career.  After looking at 20 or so stock sites I figured that fotolia.com was the best paying site for me. They offer almost 50% commision compared to others who mostly just offer 30%. Pictute categories include everything you can imagine, and if you have a good range of photos they are likely to sell daily. It was so exciting when my first picture sold, and I could barely believe it when it continued selling over and over again. It's a great way to earn residual income. If you get a chance check out some of my pictures here
