When I'm editing photos and trying to find the perfect white balance in an app like Lightroom, I often find myself tweaking the colours by single digit percents and ultimately losing my sense of what looks good or not. Here's a silly little trick that can help you "reset" your eyes to gain a new perspective. In the above clip, we see photographer Scotty Turner's secret method for achieving perfect white balance. At first glance you probably don't realise what's going on, but there's actually nothing to it. He just manically shifts the colour temperature back and forth, forcing himself to forget the raw starting point so that he dials in the new balance based on instinct and looks. You could, of course, take a more mathematic approach to find a good balance, but that negates the value of your own taste and judgement. Try fooling your eyes instead and giving the sliders a wild shift to reset your focus.
