70-365 white balance

I've learned to set my white balance for tungsten lighting when I'm indoors, preventing all those yellowed shots. But for the life of me, I cannot remember to change it back. Then I go outside and do something like this:

70-clouds and peak blue

Now, I will admit that on occasion, the blue is kind of groovy. But under most circumstances, I prefer a more realistic look.

Example #2, with the correct white balance:

70-clouds and peak

I haven't come up with anything yet, but I need a little mnemonic, ditty, or something to jog my memory whenever I turn my camera on. Let me know if you have any good ideas.

I'm better at it - but I often forget too - just don't listen to my camera shop guy... he said I should just leave it on Auto - but than he was treating me as a mom with a camera too big for her...

LOL! I ALWAYS check to see what it is on before I shoot!

P.S. I want to drive up and SLAP Kristal's camera shop guy!

I rarely remember to change my white balance (I consider it a good day if I just remember to change the ISO back again). Luckily for me the auto setting on my camera works pretty well.

I prefer the realistic colors, too, although the wild one is pretty. ;)
