    buy an 18% grey card, take a photo of it under whatever lighting you are using, set that image as your custom white balance photo, set white balance to Custom (looks like a flower)

    Shoot everything in raw and fix it later.

    Fuck setting white balance.

    Get the 50mm 1.8 lens for a cheap, good quality lens. I returned my xti with kit lens, and bought the body only + the prime. It is so much more a better lens: sharper pics, and ability for faster shutter speeds. It's just that there's no zoom, so only buy it if you're gonna be shooting things where you can walk closer/farther to "manually zoom".

    pick up some coffee filters from your grocer, put it on MF, put it up to the lens and take a photo.

    Open your menu and tell it to use custom white balance and select that as the photo.

    Don't buy recycled filters.
