Hi I'm Chris Davis for About.com. Let's review how white balance affects your photos and how to adjust it.

Pay Attention to White Balance

White balance is an element of photography that many new photographers overlook or don't understand. However, this simple adjustment can really impact your final images. White balance is used to correctly adjust the color tint of a photograph to get the most accurate color replication as possible. Different lighting situations create different color temperatures that will be picked up by a digital camera. For example indoor light bulbs give off an orange to yellow hue, sunlight will create a blue or red tint depending on the time of day and fluorescent lights are green.

Our eyes will generally compensate for changing lighting conditions, however, a digital camera needs to be white balanced for the light in which it is shooting. Performing a white balance with a digital camera is the process of providing a reference point which represents white. The camera will then calculate the remaining colors based on the correct white balance.

White Balance on Different Cameras

Digital cameras will perform white balance differently based on model and brand so you will want to refer to your owners manual to learn the process for your camera. The buttons may be different but the process is the same. You will provide a white reference for the camera and place it in the frame of your shot. Anything white will work but you may want to get in the practice of carrying a white card with you to be prepared. Once you have the white card set, perform your camera white balance procedure. You should immediately notice a change in color temperature.

In this first picture that the color seems a little off. The second photo was then white balanced and the colors are now true.

Many digital cameras will have white balance modes for different lighting situations but you will want to learn how to do it manually if the auto mode doesn't seem capture what you want.
