Oh, white balance. Ever have one of those days when none of your shots look anything like what you’re photographing? Reds seem pink and purples seem blue and all of your greens look downright yellow?
It’s not you, it’s your white balance.
Because you are your camera’s set of human eyes, you alone have to tell it what it’s looking at - clouds, full sun, fluorescent lighting, or maybe shade. Of course you can leave your white balance (WB) set to 'Auto', but it doesn't always work as smoothly as you'd like.
Take a look at the images below to see what different WB settings will translate to in your final image. And then, we'll tell you how to be the boss of white balance!
