    Brilliant! I’m slowly starting to “get it”. I’ve always shot in auto white balance. No longer with my portrait sessions. Thank you.

    Awesome, cleared up a few things I am struggling with.

    Everyone should watch this video! Lots of detailed information about colors, color temperatures in different environments and how, why and where to place your subjects in a scene. As a bonus, Daniel also goes into photoshop tools that can help enhance your vision. This man has a great eye for detail and has a wonderful way of explaining it.
