For this theme, we look at some of the old pictures and see the improvement in our photography so far. The last picture is from week 3 of last year. I used the same subject and background that I used a year ago. I do not know how the weather was on that day but today it is a cloudy day. Looking at last year's picture, I am guessing it was a sunny day. Back then I knew my camera had a White Balance setting but did not know how to use it effectively. I always used auto WB. Now I rarely use auto WB for my food photography. I still struggle with it a bit and at times when I am not sure which settings to use, I try both sunny & cloudy setting. Today although it was cloudy, I liked the pictures with sunny WB. Since it was a cloudy day, I used card boards as reflectors to bounce back the light on to my subject. Below picture is with same setting as above with a different background.
