MOBILE PHOTOGRAPHY — WHITE BALANCE

White Balance in Mobile Photography

How to understand the nature of image ?

We can adjust the kelvin value setting to a higher number, which is cool, or a lower number, which is warm, according to the situation.

Different Kelvin Values in White Balance

Some of the white balance settings are incandescent (2500 to 3000 K), daylight (5500 to 6500 K), fluorescent (4000 to 5000 K) and cloudy (6500 to 8000 K).

Effect of White balance on an image

These are the results of clicking pictures in daylight with different white balance settings and keeping the other settings in manual mode as Auto.

These are the results of clicking pictures in low light with different white balance settings and keeping the other settings in manual mode as Auto.

Relation between White balance , ISO and Shutter speed

So you can see in this image that by keeping the ISO at 1600 and the shutter speed at 2, the image becomes clearer and brighter.
