    DefaultQuestion about white balance.

    I have the Canon Rebel XT. I do have a problem with white balance. I am not sure what setting to use. I think I am using the "auto" mode. I have to figure this out soon because we still have alot of snow here. Reading the manual has not helped.
    Thanks in advance.

    take a white piece of paper with you when you think you'll need to change it and use the instructions in the manual to shoot the piece of paper and set that as "white" or I assume you could probably use the snow (wouldn't know...we don't get that crazy stuff here in FL ;D)

    when you say you have a problem with it, what exactly do you mean? Can you post a problem picture so we can see it?

    I just leave it in AWB mode and shoot in RAW. Then I adjust the color temp with the Canon DPP (Digital Photo Pro software) that came with my camera before converting it to a JPEG...

    Before: Default Color Temp 5200k


    After: Adjusted Color Temp 7800k

    raw is really fun because of all the creative control you have after the snap of the shutter. That said, I think learning to adjust in camera is a better option just in case you don't want to shoot in raw. I shoot both just in case
