This week, Stephanie Glover explained white balance. This isn’t an easy concept but when done right, it can really change the outcome of your pictures. As always, Stephanie’s explanation was easy to understand and implement. And as a result, we saw a ton of great examples of white balance this week on Facebook. Like Derek Albo’s water bottles, Kristi Shannon’s baseballs and Karen Wiehoff’s iPhone charger. And we loved Kelly Williams Bigley’s white-themed shot so much, we made it a featured image.

You guys took a lot of great pictures this week. And even more thrilling, is the encouragement we’ve noticed.  We love watching you comment on each other’s pictures, share recipes and trade parenting stories. It’s really lovely to see. Thank you for continuing to take part in The 365 Project.

This week, to switch things up a bit, we took our 12 favorite shots and turned them into a Picaboo Collage Poster. Now, we want to know from you, which picture is your favorite? We’ve labeled each picture from one to 12 and on our Facebook page, we’ve added a poll where you can vote for your favorite. The picture with the most votes will win a $30 Picaboo Gift Card.

You can vote for your favorite photo until Saturday (12/28/12) at 6 p.m. ET. At that point, the photographer that has the highest number of votes will receive the gift card.

(And one more thing, we’ve got an amazing promotion running right now. From now until 12/31/12, you can save up to 40% off Classic Books, Cards, Calendars and Collage Posters.
