    How to annoy photography snobs: 06 Colourcasts

    Best white balance settings for night photography: fixing bad colour casts

    An overly orange color cast

    Most photo snobs are obsessed with correctness so colourcasts are anathema to them.

    However, their argument breaks down somewhat when you start shooting sunsets.

    If you set a ‘correct’ custom white balance to render subject neutral you’ll take out all the warmth and ambience, you may as well shoot at any time of day.

    The best sunset results are often achieved by shooting with the Daylight white balance setting as it expects neutral light and will record the vivid, warm colours of the low sun.

    The ‘wrong’ white balance can also work well in other situations.

    For example, you may want to use the Shade setting when shooting in mist to enhance the sense of the sun burning through, or switch to the Tungsten setting to give a strong blue cast in fog and make the scene look colder and more wintery.
