This image is an example of a copy test manipulating white balance and reading meters. Two lights were placed diagonal on either side of the camera, which was mounted directly above the image, which had a piece of glass placed upon it. I ran into some trouble avoiding the reflection of my arms or the camera strap in the image, that I will have to learn to correct, but overall the assignment wasn't too difficult. I learned how to effectively read a meter in-camera and determine what white balance works best in what conditions.
