- [Narrator] In this movie, we're going to take on…the much misunderstood topic of white balance for strobes.…And the idea here is you need to be able to compensate…for the color temperature of your artificial light.…Now white balance comes in handy when you're trying…to accommodate natural sunlight as well,…and you'll see a little bit of what that looks like.…But because we're devoting this chapter to strobes,…that's where we're going to focus our attention.…Alright now many of you may not know…what we mean by color temperature,…and so the idea here is that the light source…may bring with it a color cast.…
And that's going to affect the color of your image as well.…So here's we're seeing a variety of different light sources,…and some numbers as well,…and the numbers are measured in degrees Kelvin.…In this case from a thousand over on the left hand side,…to ten thousand on the right side.…And so we're spanning the range here,…from very warm light sources, on the left hand side,…to very cool light sources, on the right hand side.…
