Week 3: Introduction to Lighting – White Balance – Unit 1


I will be going out and taking pictures using different white balance settings at the same location in order to test what difference it made to the lighting of the shot.



Auto White Balance               Daylight                                 Shade


Cloudy                                    Tungsten light                        White Fluorescent

I found it quite easy to physically change the settings to change the white balance, but I did struggle to understand how the light entering the lens changed the colour, however I think I got the hang of it in the end.
