Sample text

Chapter 2 n The Fundamentals 33 The same photo, simulating daylight (5,600°K) lighting under a tungsten (3,200°K) white balance camera setting. The original photo of model Alexandra Preda under correct white balance. A basic understanding of color temperatures and how digital sensors see them is fundamental to understanding light and photography. Why is this so important? Because the camera’s sensors are not as flexible as your eye, and understanding how to see different temperatures when you’re encountering a mix of lighting will give you solid ground about how to fix the situation: when to use filters, when to use different light sources, and what to expect when color temperatures mix.

Although you may be able to stand in a room lit with tungsten (3,200°K) light at night and see everything “normal” in white light, if the camera is set to see daylight (5,600°K) as “white,” then everything in the room in the image will appear a deep orange. This is because the camera, on “outdoor” setting is programmed to see the higher Kelvin temperature as “white” and when the actual light that is captured is of a longer, warmer wavelength, it will appear a lot redder in the captured image—see the first image of model Alexandra Preda.

A good multi-tool is wise to have with you. Think Swiss Army Knife, but larger. Pliers, several screwdriver heads, and so on. Wire cutters/wire strippers. Not necessarily the same tool, but they can be. Most wire strippers have cutting blades in them, too, but a good pair of diagonal cutters can’t be disregarded. Multi screwdrivers are great for small projects. A multi screwdriver typically has at least two sizes of Phillips heads and two sizes of flat heads. A good comfortable pair of shoes isn’t a bad idea, either.
