White Balance as a Creative Tool
Professional video shooters have always liked to tweak their cameras a little with a white balance trick. Instead of using a white card, they use something that’s light blue like faded blue jeans. This gives the shot a pleasing “warm” look. The only problem is the results are a little unpredictable especially when the color blue changes. The Rembrandt Card solves that problem. You get a consistent color every time. And you’re not locked into one shade of blue. There’s an easy way to change it to suit your tastes. You get a 17- page article with lots of color pictures demonstrating how you can control color with our Rembrandt card, and many other shooting tricks and tips to put you in creative control of the look of your video.
