Todays exercise was testing out the different white balance options on your camera to see the difference. And it really is something worth trying out, especially for christmas shots, where most of the shots are indoors in poor light.
While I was playing I took this shot which I really liked as it has a real christmassy feel.
The picture was shot completely in the dark, using a flourescent white balance setting, a 30" exposure and using only a flourescent torch to light the subject, which I moved around slightly to light up the different elements.
Off now to finish off the wine - well couldn't let it go to waste ;-)
