ColorRight Pro White Balance Tool

It’s often argued that in order to end up with great images, you need to ensure that you’re capturing the right colours to start with in the camera. Looking like a cross between a camera filter and a snow-globe, the ColorRight Pro promises to be “the ultimate white balance solution” and is the latest white balance tool to find itself in my camera bag.

Simple Glass Still Life

Unless you’re extremely efficient when it comes to recycling, the chances are that you may have some ideal still-life subject matter at home. Yes, we’re talking glass. I still have some empty glass bottles waiting to be recycled from last Christmas, but I also have a small collection of interesting bottles that I’ve collected over the years for this very purpose. You see, glass bottles and glass, erm, glasses are ideal still life subjects.

I got to try one out at Epson’s HQ near Hemel Hempstead a full month before its official release.

Munki see, Munki do

Despite sounding like some kind of washing powder technology that stops your colours running and still keeps whites whiter than white, colour management is all about ensuring that what you see on your computer monitor is what you get out of your printer. The ColorMunki X-Rite Photo is a device that helps you manage your colours, and one that is excellent on several counts…it is by far and away the easiest colour calibration tool I have used to date.
