Thread: White Balance Theory

  1. #1

    Lightbulb White Balance Theory

    Will the WB be the same if taken from at the circle if shooting a tall tree? Unless it's a fast moving overcast; moving clouds?



    I have it kind of backwards, if I take the WB in non-direct sunlight and there is heavy sunlight on the top of the tree.

    Maybe I should get one of these, any opinions on them? (the WB cap?)

    As far as white balance is concerned, I don't think you will notice the difference. However, exposure could be a problem.

    You mean iris? I'm not doing photography. My hood came with a cap that color but it did not say it was for WB use.

    I'm talking about your first post, If you have something in half shade, half sun light you could have a problem with exposure. ie if the exposure is set right for the shade the bit in sun light could be over exposed.

    Midnight Blue be right...... Wb is simply a reference point for colour temperature not light intensity.

    So in other words clouds could be considered light intensity? I'm sure noon sunlight is a different color then evening (ex golden hour) but it makes me wonder now, what times or time periods is the color the same? (11am-2pm 2pm-4pm 4pm-7pm etc)

    Think of it in simpler terms, white balance for daylight or artificial light. Daylight is daylight so the difference between 11am and 7pm in summer won't be noticeable, but exposure will.

    I thought mornings were blueish and evenings were redddish.
