White Balance in Photography

ExpoImaging ExpoDisc White balance is an adjustment that accounts for the color temperature of the light in a scene. All light sources emit light at a specific color temperature, which is expressed in Kelvin. As the light travels, it may pass through particles in the atmosphere or a filter on the lens, which filters some of the wavelengths.
