White Balance....will I ever find it?

White balance on my camera has been an issue for me for quite a
while.  Most of my photos are too yellow.  I've been
aggravated, to say the least.  Then the Pioneer Woman's Miz Booshay posted
about what she learned this past year in photography.  It got me
thinking...I pulled out my camera manual...my Snapshots of A Good Life
course book & started playing.  Now, many of the photos you see
are Photoshopped....I don't possess that skill or that program...so I
want my photos to look good straight out of the camera...is that too
much to ask?

This is an exaggerated version of what I've been
getting...can you see why I'm upset?  (I'd already started fiddling
with the white balance.)

Then I adjusted it some more....

Boy he looks sick....so another adjustment or two

Perfect?  Not yet.  But the color is more in line with where it should be.  Whew!

All
I gotta say, is read your camera manual.  Lost it?  Find it
online at the camera company's website.  Promise yourself you'll
start taking better photos today!
