I’ve actually gone back and forth a bit about the use of graph paper (Dennis, for one, is not a fan). If I were to do it again, I would choose a grey-lined graph paper, as the color of the lines actually messes with the WB a bit. It is surprisingly difficult to find neutral-colored millimeter paper, but templates abound online for printing one’s own. Doing so on Rite-in-the-Rain paper would make it extra durable, if not washable.

What I’d really like is to be this good:

but that’s all done with flash, and I am still, woefully, flash challenged…

The scale is everywhere!

This is nice. Very scientific and useful to see the scale and the graph paper added a touch of color.
