Since winter is still hanging on, I’m mostly relegated to my small studio in my home. Something I mean to do, but often forget at the end of a long stack is to take a photo of the color-checker card. Why? Because, it is a PITA, because I have to somehow position the color-checker card with one hand and also focus and take the photo with the other.
So, I took one of our microphone stands, put a 19” flexible gooseneck on the stand with a clamp on the top end, and put the color-checker in the clamp. Now, all I have to do is bend the gooseneck into the frame of the photo and take a snapshot. My question is, should I place the color-checker card in front of the flowers, in the middle of the flowers, or behind the flowers to get the best reading.
Sorry about the poor quality of this snapshot.
