Quick 3 Steps: Custom WBalance by fridaythe13th Quick 3 Steps: Custom WBalance by fridaythe13th
If you'd like a more permanent/professional filter of this type,
here's a quick photo description on how to make one yourself using 2 cheap UV filters (& the coffee filters).

This was my first tutorial,
so I really hope it was clear and useful:heart:
all feedback/faves are truly appreciated!



I was so tired of being unhappy with the colours of every indoor photo I would take; so when I read about this trick I just had to share it with all of you! :D

About a week ago during a period a lot of rain, I started to get really fed up with not being able to set my custom WB quickly indoors, so I started looking around for what I could buy.


The first thing I came across was something called the ExpoDisk.

It looked perfect, but a little pricey (around $130 for a filter that would fit my uber large 77mm lens)

I decided to research more, and I found this fantastic Idea!

I was a little sceptical as to how well it would work, since it seemed so cheap and cheeseball but to my surprise it worked far better than I had imagined!

I really hope you all give it a try :love:
