Strike a bal­ance

NPhoto - - Over To You -

When you’re shoot­ing ei­ther side of sun­rise/sun­set, or when di­rect light is ob­scured by thick cloud, it can be tricky to know what white bal­ance to set, as the tech­ni­cally ‘cor­rect’ white bal­ance might ac­tu­ally coun­ter­act the cast that gives the scene its mood and at­mos­phere. One op­tion is to take a ref­er­ence shot of your­self in the scene us­ing the flash or sun­light pre­set, as this will give you some in­di­ca­tion of the over­all, un­cor­rected mood of the scene (as in the cool blues of the im­age above).
