I am very intimidated posting here, because everyone seems to be so good at photography, but I need people to talk to about it, no one here does.
OK, this is my fourth attempt to "get it" with manual mode. This time I really feel like something clicked, I am using the book understanding exposure. So I made a pact to use manual mode no matter what I am doing, till I get it down.
So today while giving my kiddies a bath I put my point and shoot (Canon powershot sx20 is) in manual to practice, and was having a hard time, so I put it in P mode to see what the camera chose. Then I put it back in manual and attempted to recreate that, which worked (needed the flash). But this is how my photo came out! Can anyone tell me why it is blue. I did a custom white balance on the white wall......
