Switch off AWB for bet­ter colour

NPhoto - - Special Feature -

82 Your Nikon’s AWB (auto White Bal­ance) set­ting works well in day­light but can end up giv­ing you the wrong colour bal­ance in ar­ti­fi­cial light­ing in­doors, and with flood­lit build­ings. Shots can look too or­ange, as the colour tem­per­a­ture is too low for the AWB sys­tem to read ac­cu­rately. You will get a more nat­u­ral colour if you set the White Bal­ance man­u­ally (and us­ing the Kelvin (K) val­ues if your SLR of­fers these). Al­ter­na­tively, shoot in RAW and ad­just colour in post.
