There isn’t any one secret to taking a great photo, but there are many things you can do to improve the quality of your shots. For instance, taking into account the color temperature of the available lighting where you’re shooting will help you avoid photos that end up with an odd tint. This can be done by adjusting your camera’s white balance pre-sets, or by carrying and photographing a gray card for color correction reference or creating a custom white balance setting. Both techniques have their advantages and limitations, but these baLens White Balance lens caps from BRNO seem to be an even better solution.

They attach to your lens like a standard lens cap, but feature a translucent plastic dome allowing light to still reach your camera’s sensors. With the baLens mounted to your lens you can easily snap a reference exposure that can be used to create a custom white balance setting in your camera, instantly improving your photos. (In terms of color that is.) The baLens lens caps can also be used as a replacement for your standard lens caps, meaning you always have them readily available. You can get them from Adorama in 52, 55, 58, 62, 67, 72 and 77mm sizes for $54.95 each.
