White Balance Effects

Many photographers I know entirely ignore the fact that their camera and editing software can make changes to white balance. White balance allows you to change the colour hue of an image as a whole. This way you can cast a warmer glow over an image by shifting the white balance towards the reds and yellows. Alternatively, you could cast a colder feel to an image by shifting it towards the greens and blues. Try playing with the white balance while editing your beach pictures to see what different effects you can achieve. My biggest piece of advice with white balance control is to keep it subtle and not overdo it. Refer to our white balance chart for a closer look.
