 Post subject: CPL White Balance
PostPosted: Mon Sep 28, 2009 6:13 am 

In the video explaining how to use a CPL, you mentioned that the Auto white balance should be changed to daylight to avoid the camera compensating for the polarizer.

When I used a polarizer the first time I felt like the camera was really favoring a "cooler" white balance. So, taking this advice the next time out I switched the camera to daylight. Problem was, not every shot I took was in perfect daylight. Some were in shade, some were in cloudy conditions. So, naturally many of my shots have some pretty messed up white balances that I'm fixing in RAW.

So, I'm curious what other people do. Do you guys find you have to disable the Auto white balance on your camera to get the best results?

Once you understand what each WB setting tries to compensate, you will find it easy to pick the appropriate setting. They basically compensate for an overly blue or yellow scene and in varying intensities. Just mess around and you'll soon pick up on which setting to use and when.
