Why White Balance is important for you?
If you’ve ever taken photos indoors without a flash and wondered why everyone looks so orange, this post will definitely help you.
White balance modes of Flash Plus 2 determines how accurately the colors in your photos come out, specifically, it determines how ‘hot’ or ‘cold’ an image feels – understanding white balance is absolutely key to making your photos look good
Setting your White balance accurately will prevent against nasty color cast which will make your images look unnatural. Different color casts come from white not being true white in different lighting situations. This post will teach you how to deal with that
Camera >> Settings >> White balance
Auto: Good if you don’t know what you’re doing and it works well in sunlight but in most situations is unsuitable.
Incandescent: This type of lighting is gradually being phased out
Daylight: Auto mode can been good in daylight but not perfect. I would typically use this balance in daylight but most people tend to stick to auto because they’re worried about forgetting to change the WB when they go back indoors.
Fluorescent: This comes from tube lighting found in offices and hospitals. It’s a very cold light and can make your photos appear blue. This is also why offices have that nasty sterile feel.
Cloudy: Again, this is pretty self explanatory as to when you’d use it.
Shade: Auto mode makes photos look a little cold in the shade so using this preset will be a lot more accurate.
All of these modes simply tell your camera how much it should adjust the colour of the photo it’s taking
