Q: I took a picture of a snow scene and it turned out with a bluish cast. What causes that? How can I fix it so it will look natural not blue?
Color Temperature in Photography
|WB Mode||Lighting Conditions|
Camera's best guess for a color temperature between 3000-4000K and at 7000K
Outdoors with overcast skies, shady areas or twilight skies
Outdoors on a clear day or to capture the reds in a sunset or colors in fireworks
Indoors with incandescent lighting. Use outdoors for enhanced blue effect
Optimal white balance setting when camera is pointed at a solid white object(see note)
Note: some cameras allow the shooter to set a custom WB. Consult your manual for details.
