White Balance pt. 1
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.

7 Steps to Perfect Pictures has made m understand a lot more what the different tools do. Watching a free youtube video i would never have bothered to test out the difference between contrast and clarity, but since I've paid for this course I want to get the most out of it I therefore did exercises like that. This gave me a lot more knowledge about how to use the different tools, and what they do.
