For this very first POTD in 2009, I have to admit I am cheating. Already???? Yes :-O I took these pictures yesterday, and although some turned out nice enough, I made a huge mistake, which in my eyes in a beginners mistake. I won't say this will never happen to me again, never say never, but I hope I'll think about this mistake next time I go picture hunting!
We were taking a walk in our quite new neighbourhood (new to us), it was beautiful weather, almost spring like, and I had only one thing in mind: taking photos! So there I went, and the result was quite a surprise.I took the photos in manual, some were not well exposed at all, others were quite ok in exposure but... I forgot that I had put the White Balance on Thungsten the night before! So basically that's how you turn a white cat into a smurf, meet ScoobyDoo:
That was actually not the picture I selected for the POTD, that one is below. Also taken with the wrong WB (it took me a while to actually notice my mistake!), taken on our walk on a little path nearby our house. Even though the colors are not correct, I quite like the photo :
Thanks to a very helpful Pea for explaining how to make a frame ;-)
I received the book I ordered: Understanding Exposure byt Bryan Peterson and Wow, it is a great book, I recommand it everyone who is, come me, a beginner!!!
I am so looking forward to spring, with lots and lots of photo opportunities! :-) I'm starting to get obsessed!!! Well, I'll see you all tomorrow for a new POTD, have a good day all! OH, and PS, the picture in the post below was also with wrong WB :-O
