Happy weekend, my lightscooped friend! Now I'm off to babysit the cutest grandbaby there ever was. Keeping fingers crossed for both our sakes for a sunny weekend - come on, garden work and deck building!

Hxx

Cool, well, warm, you know what I mean!
Are you using Photoscape on Virtual PC?

Benita ~ Chez Larsson

I'm using Parallells. It's great because I can switch from Mac to PC anytime without rebooting or anything. I use Mac for most thngs but PC for Photoscape and Live Writer.

Thanks for the tip. I think I am going to download Photoscape. I've been using Picassa, but sounds like Photoscape might have additional options.
Trevlig helg!

There will not be any deck building this weekend either... Arggggh! They will deliver the materials today though and start buiding on Monday morning. The forcast looks good for painting next week so fingers crossed.

And kiss those little cheeks for me!

I love that Photoscape has so many one click options as well as that you can adjust everything manually.

Thank you for demonstrating the effects. I prefer number 3 because of the shades in your eyes, they give a nice cool contrast against the generally warmer colours of the picture.
Trevlig helg!

Wow, there's a lovely glow to the second shot isn't there but still somehow retains the cool whites. I like it! Thanks for the tipoff about photoscape, I've been looking for a simple editing program for a while for my product images on my etsy shop ... will give it a whirl! thanks

I got both of them after your review (well the warming one took a good while because of a mistake on their part, which, to their credit, they rectified quickly as soon as they became aware of it), but have still to try out the warming one. I love the standard one and use it a lot. After this I guess I know what I'll be playing with this evening!

I think you'll love the warming one even more when you use it in conditions where other yellow light is mixed in.

Flash is created to have a colour that matches outdoor/sunlight. Those warming flash attachments (you can get them to stick on attached flashes, too) are made to give the flash the same yellowish cast as the rest of the indoor light (for example when you are taking a photo of someone and there's a whole room visible behind them). You can then set the white balance of the camera to ambient light (usually they use a lightbulb-symbol for that) and it gets the whole picture more neutral.

If you use an unchanged flash on a person in situations with a lot of ambient you'll otherwise either have a neutral person in front of a very yellow room, or (if you changed the wb) a neutralish room and a very blue person. So that's where these attachments really shine, in helping to making the colour of light even throughout the picture. They never match 100 %, but it's a lot closer than without.

You can also get them for a greenish cast to match with fluorescent light, but I have one and don't use it much because it never created the »right« kind of green.

Nothing to add really except that I think I'm going to buy a lightscoop now and that you're really very pretty, Benita! Have a great weekend. xo

Lisa Flaherty

Pretty amazing!

Lisa

This has nothing to do with cameras but with "Fridays".... I miss your posts on the weekends but always know you are up to something wonderful to share that will be pretty or amazing or inspiring or all three!

Happy weekend to you also.

Vanessa

The edited version looks great!

María Björk

That's actually really cool. I might have to get me one of those :)

ginger

Hilarious! I emailed them and pointed out your review - I told them it was the reason I decided to buy it and that they should send you the warmer cause I'm risk averse and prefer to read your reviews. They wrote me back but never mentioned the review - so maybe it was my letter, maybe it wasn't. Excellent customer service though and I love it! Like the results of the warmer, too...hmmm - maybe I'll have to get it! love your blog!

Benita ~ Chez Larsson

Thank you so much! :)
