Color temperature and white balance can be incredibly powerful tools when it comes to crafting emotion for your scenes.

Today, we’ll be discussing how you can use white balance and color temperature to craft unique looks that work with all sorts of different film genres. Shooting a horror? Romance? Comedy? We’ve got you covered.

We share specific color temperature examples that will help you create a look that will match your scene. We do this by taking you through the color temperature scale and shifting our white balance up and down to create different looks. You can be subtle or stylised, it’s up to you!
