Mysteries of White Balance
- Dennis takes a look at the importance of white balance – how our brain processes color
- Auto White Balance (AWB) usually is a good choice
Human brain compensates for what we hear and see.
You will get color cast, especially inexpensive cameras.
Lens, processor, individual CCD sensor cell spectral response.
Old days – Film and filters
Today – electronic compensation for defects / characteristics of sensor
Dawn and Dusk
So AWB is ok – but it will be better if you remember to set it to conditions.
Dont worry … All of it can be salvaged in PhotoShop
