9. Understand Creative vs. Corrective White Balance
Lastly, let’s talk about White Balance. It will help you achieve the correct color balance in your images. To get comfortable with it, we suggest some practice using the Kelvin dial.
Try this inside and outside. The key is to memorize the corresponding numbers to diverse shooting conditions.
For example, most daylight will be 5000-6000K, while indoor light will be 3000-4000K. Then for deep shade, it will be 7000K+. The more you work with this and use it, the more the settings will become second nature.
We hope you’ve found our guide useful for your journey into using flash photography. We always remind folks that photography is all about practice so that settings and conditions become second nature.
It’s never more true than with flash photography. It can be intimidating and even challenging at first. But, eventually, you’ll know just what to do and how to do it. Give yourself some grace, and take your time and practice, practice, practice!
