Using White Balance in Photography


Lately I’ve been learning how to use manual settings on my camera. That includes aperture, shutter, ISO, and White Balance settings. Today I used two different white balance settings and there was a huge difference in the color of my photo! I took these photos a couple hours before sunset and there was a warm glow to the light. These photos were taken in shade.  The second photo I manually selected the ‘shady’ white balance.

This photo (above) I took with an automatic white balance setting, where the camera chose it for me. I only set my aperture, shutter, and ISO settings. (f/5.6, 1/60sec, 400ISO)

The second photo(above) has a lot more color to it. I already had my aperture, and ISO settings set the same. The shutter I made a little faster since she was moving. I manually changed my white balance to the ‘shady’ selection. Since my cat is orange, a warm color, a white balance that used a warmer tint to it worked well. (f/5.6, 1/80sec, 400ISO)

The third photo is my favorite. (f/5.6, 1/40sec, 400ISO)
