white balance photography tutorial – is it really that hard and that important?

White balance video tutorial

In this video, we are exploring how easy it is to set up a reasonable good white balance for each situation, without worrying too much about the theory. You just need to use an empty white surface, take a shot in the Automatic White Balance mode and set the result as a the custom white balance difference. That will be become the neutral grey reference for that particular scene and all the next shots will use that as a grey point of start

White balance toll is designed to overcome the issue of light colour having a significant impact on the final result. The idea is to get as neutral as possible as each light colour will lead to a result where the white is not real white and it has a tint in it. The purpose of each white balance setting is to overcome this issue and try to get it “right”
