Basics of Photography – White Balance

Different light sources produce different color temperatures, each of which can produce unwanted color-casts in your pictures. White balance is the function your camera uses to determine the color temperature of the surrounding light (by measuring the purity of the whites) and makes adjustments to eliminate the unwanted color cast. White Balance settings, which are accessed through the on-screen Set-Up or Shooting menus, usually include auto, daylight, incandescent and fluorescent.
