Nine Pictures From The Nine Emperor Gods Festival
Ampang, 18th October 2009: Ang Ku Girl. The tortoise-shaped red Ang Ku Ker bun is a Hokkien kuih.
This stall presented the most challenging white balance situation. There is tungsten light mixed with
fluorescent. Daylight is also present. So what do you do in a situation like this? I took a manual white
balance from the daylight behind her. The slight reddish cast on her face is preserved to give it a more
natural representation of the warm surroundings. Fortunately, she was quite cooperative. See Next Pic
