World From Above – Part 2

After class I made my way back to the city. I planned to find some places to shoot at but the weather wasn’t about to co-operate.

I headed under-cover into the Queen Victoria Building. Good old QVB, it really is a photographer’s paradise with all its Victorian charm, light spaces, and many interesting angles. It’s one of my favourite place to shoot.

We talked a lot about white balance in class, and how certain light conditions and different light sources can affect the colour of a photo, warm to cool. It’s basically what our eyes automatically do, but what needs to be applied by the camera when taking shots. Modern digital cameras have auto-white-balance that tries to mimic human eyes, but similarly it can get things rather wrong. This function can however be used creatively to give you some interesting moods.
