the color characteristics of light change, depending on the time of day. The environmental conditions on the source of the light and the technical purpose of white balance is to neutralize color caste caused by these characteristics. The white balance presets represented by these icons are the digital equivalent of optical color correction filters. Cloudy and shade of the equivalent of orange warming filters, fluorescent and tungsten of the same as blue calling filters matching the white balance presets. The prevailing conditions. For example, Setting cloudy on an overcast day is how you neutralize color casts. Alternatively, auto white balance may be used to automate the process. Now, while the technical purpose of white balance is to remove color casts artistically, you can use the white balance control to maintain, enhance or even add a color cast on diff. This is your aim.

What a marvelous course! What a marvelous teacher!
When I went to college, my father would always ask me about my professors, more than the courses themselves. He was passionate about learning and although too busy with earning an income to go beyond an undergrad degree, continued to read 50 books a year. I still remember how he'd get almost visibly excited when I'd tell him about some special professor who taught with such enthusiasm and, more than just passion, evident delight and joy in the subject.
'Ah they're the best, son. How wonderful you have such a teacher."
Well, he passed away decades ago but if he were still around I'd get a kick out of telling him about Chris Weston, the 'Prof' of this course. He's one of the very special ones: a teacher who's loved and lived his vocation--his avocation--since he was a boy--and still is as excited about it now as he was then.
The result: a course that seems to be more a labor of love--of pouring far more energy and thought into the details then one typically finds in these courses--than anything else.
Bravo Chris! I'm already on to your next one.
Chris is an amazing instructor who dissects theory giving amazing analogies that bring concepts to life. I have rarely been able to sit through most video course for more than a half-hour but watched this one from beginning to end. A good refresher course if you've been away from the camera for awhile or there are some concepts that still illude you. I highly recommend this course and look forward to watching his others. Thank you for the clarity and great explanations.
This was an amazing class. I have looked at a number of basic photography classes. This one was by far the best I have seen. Chris is an exceptional teacher. He breaks things down into digestible information and then inspires you to be creative. Thank you!
