Ben returned to school after being out yet again for over a week due to snow. It will take a few days to get back into the groove of routine and hopefully a little excitement over homework time. He wasn't entirely enthusiastic about it today in case that scowl on his face didn't clue you in.
And not to be left out, "Mini B" had to be given his own paper and pencil so that he could do his homework too.
I also worked on my own homework assignment. My friend Kelley gave me a gray card yesterday and challenged me to put it to use, particularly during artficial lighting situations. So finding my nearest cooperative subject, a sleeping cat, I went at it.
I have to admit, there is a HUGE difference. I have used custom white balance before, but never with a gray card. I am amazed at not only the coloring, but also the exposure. These were all taken with the exact same settings other than white balance adjustment and are SOOC (meaning I didn't doctor them up in photoshop). I will experiment some more, but I can see already I may be toting a gray card around with me a lot!
