E) Cloudy day. 0 FOR DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHERS SCANNER AND CAMERA TECHNIQUES 32 Auto white balance >> The modern digital camera has a highly developed auto white balance system. It performs well under most lighting scenarios and should be your first choice when shooting under difficult conditions. Auto white balance The Auto function assesses the color of the light in the general environment and attempts to neutralize the mid tones of the image. As with most ‘auto’ camera features, this setting works well for the majority of ‘normal’ scenarios.

Com It is true that this process can be handled by Elements using the Color Cast or Color Variations features but, as we have already seen with the camera techniques above, the best quality images are generated when adjustments such as these are made at the capture stage. 0 Difficulty level – Basic One of the hidden enemies of quality scans is dust. Though the presence of dust won’t reduce the ability of the scanner to record highlight and shadow detail accurately it does decrease the overall quality of the file because the affected area must be retouched later in Elements.
