Next Meeting - Monday 11 September - 11.00am

Hi Members,

The challenge for the next Show and Tell segment is 'REFLECTIONS", so please send us up to three photos. Try to use different sources of reflections, for example, water, glass, shiny surfaces.

The main topic will be 'WHITE BALANCE' Photos without the Blue/Yellow cast. This will be presented by member Ralph Willits.

White balance (WB) is the process of removing unrealistic color casts, so that objects which appear white in person are rendered white in your photo. Proper camera white balance has to take into account the "color temperature" of a light source, which refers to the relative warmth or coolness of white light.

Ralph will be explaining in detail, how to work with white balance.
