White Balance pt. 1

Photoshop for beginners 2

Description

White Balance settings are where you tell the camera the colour of the light you're photographing in. This is known as 'Colour Temperature' which is measured in Degrees Kelvin.

We don't notice this colour balance shift with our eyes because our brains colour correct white balance for us automatically.

By choosing the appropriate white balance setting on your camera for the light you're shooting in, you can ensure your pictures will have a more professional look to them.

The top pic was shot in auto white balance (which can be inconsistent) and the bottom one was set manually for the conditions. Personally I find the bottom one much nicer.

commasopencommascloseThe 7 Building Blocks of Photography has massively improved my photography overall. Since completing the course I feel much more confident. Putting the blocks in place has definitely made me think about each shot and it’s becoming natural rather for me to do this now. The course is worth more than the price and I definitely recommend it.
