Flash Color Correction Assignment

This is the photo I am turning in for our flash color correction assignment.  Basically, every type of light bulb emits a different colorcast.  Flourescent lights have a green cast, a normal light bulb has a orange cast and daylight / my flash has a blue cast.  In this assignment we had to put the appropriate colored gel over our flash to balance out the light in the room.

I did my assignment inside the “Cool Stuff” store in Columbia on Broadway.  The store sells, well… cool stuff.  Every toy, knick-knack or novelty item can be found in this store.  They also sell a lot of great stuff from Southeast Asia.

Shooting with flash was once again frustrating, but I guess that is to be expected.
