Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video White balance, part of Learning the Nikon D5200 and D5300.
- Not all light is the same.…Different light sources shine…with different color temperatures.…For example, if you're shooting under fluorescent lights,…these tend to run a bit cooler,…while candle flames are considered warm.…The human eye can automatically compensate for these changes…but your camera needs a little bit of help.…The camera needs to be calibrated…based upon the lighting conditions.…To change the white balance on your camera,…press the information edit button,…and use the multiselector button.…Highlight white balance and press OK.…
Then, you can use the multiselector button…to choose the desired setting.…You'll press OK to store it.…You can also set the white balance manually.…We'll take a look at that in just a second.…Now, the default value of auto…adjusts the camera automatically to the scene.…If you're shooting under incandescents,…choose the incandescent option.…This will work best for traditional light bulbs,…and these run about 3,000 degrees Kelvin.…The fluorescent setting is well-suited…for all types of fluorescent lamps.…
