Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Using white balance as a starting point, part of Lightroom: Creative Color.
- [Instructor] Another one of our essential and core color…tools inside of the Basic panel is the white balance tool.…And here we want to take a look at how we can use the…white balance tool sometimes to get started…and to integrate it into a creative workflow,…and other times, how we can use it to shed some light…on how we might modify the color and tone.…We'll start off with this photograph here…and work on a couple others.…With this image, if we want to use…the white balance tool, we can press the W key…or just click on the white balance tool icon,…which is located right here.…Now, this is another one of these photographs…of a chalk drawing, and this one is probably, again,…six or seven feet wide by, I don't know,…eight, nine, 10 feet tall.…
It's this huge, huge piece here, and I was there,…so I know that the chalk that was used here was white…on the shoulder, so I'll click on that.…And when we click on that,…we click on an area which we think should be neutral,…it will remove a color cast for us,…and often, this is how we'll use the white balance tool.…
