Thanks for bringing this up! I haven't played around with the white balance settings very much (once, when I was photographing snow, I think), so I did not include it in this tutorial. You make a great point, though - definitely something to check into! My understanding is that you take a photograph where your white background fills the entire screen, and then you tell your camera to base the white balance settings on that photo. Is that the gist of it?
