    New Camera! No more bad photos.

    My old camera died the other day so I had to get a new one.
    Now I have no excuse for any more bad photos.

    The new camera takes photos that look like the wood actually looks in real life.

    Here is an example photo of some redwood.

    It's those sunglasses you are wearing in your photo.
    They make your nose look big and everything else looks brown.

    if it has manual settings you can use a tripod and change the settings to really get sharp shots

    At first I thought ***, then I put on my glasses and remembered this photo was taken without the tripod.
    Sucks getting old(-ish)
    The individual photos I took using the tripod are sharper.

    Next start playing with custom white balance settings to dial in your color accuracy.

    That would be awesome but it would only work well if people had the same color card. Even easier, you can put a 15% grey card in the shot and people can calibrate to that. Most people aren't aware of color accuracy as a problem though, so it might just be confusing. I half-way know what I am doing and still mess it up sometimes.

    Looks like the shots I am getting are pretty true to actual color.
