The White Balance Lesson is very straightforward and easy to understand. Ultimately, we want our students to understand what White Balance is, how to set it on the camera, and remember to also set and check the White Balance settings for any and every video production project, big or small. In addition, it’s OK to explain to students when using a specific white balance setting, for an artistic reason in a video. Finally, students will be required to understand the kelvin scale as it relates to white balance as well.
