Re: My first real test drive of my D610

I found the dropper-technique (Adopbe Lightroom) the most effective for correcting White Balance. There are many posts online on how to do that; here's one of them: http://www.iheartfaces.com/2013/03/how-to-white-balance-in-lightroom/

This technique does not require you to visually correct the White Balance. It works the best if you simply take a pic of a White Balance gray card before taking a series a pics in the same environment/lighting. Later in LR, you can set the WB by sampling the gray color in that card using the WB dropper and syncing the WB in all the pics in that series.

If you don't have a grey card, you can use any neutral gray area in any of your pics as a reference for WB for all the pics; example: the gray tiles in the background in the pool area.
