Tip #9: Learn about white balance


Digital cameras these days are getting very clever at adjusting for white balance, but they are still not perfect.

Making sure that you have the right white balance set for each photo you take is going to give you better results. If your photos are looking too blue, too yellow, maybe too green you’ve got to sort your white balance out. Every light source effects white balance differently, a fluorescent light inside will effect your white balance differently than a sunny day outside.

My advice is to shoot on raw if your camera has the ability, leave your white balance set to auto and then adjust it in Photoshop, Lightroom, or whatever post processing application you like best after you have taken the photo. That means you will never have to worry about adjusting your camera white balance while you are out in the field.

I love the tilt shift effect. I shot this from my hotel room on the Gold Coast using my new FujiFilm X-T1 (review will come soon) and then I used Adobe Photoshop Tilt Shift filter.
