If you look at my “Camera Bag” page, you’ll notice that I have a pretty nice professional photo printer (not something you can get for $50 at Wal-Mart). I’m telling you this because I plan to print all of my images using this printer.
I don’t want to spend a lot on my photography right now because I’m just too new at it and I don’t want to buy the wrong items and waste money. I see a lot of people mention grey cards, but they seem to be something I don’t know if I’ll use a lot.
I decided to create my own. I found a few different suggestions online, but it’s pretty basic. You need a card that is neutrally colored to calibrate your camera shots. This means your RGB levels all must be equal.
SO here’s how to create a grey card:
1. Open Photoshop and create a new fill layer
2. Set the color using the RGB settings: R: 209, G: 209, B: 209.
3. Print and Use!
