kk: Color Temperature: Color Temperature
Color temperature is an objective measure of the color of a light source, expressed in Kelvin (K). Light sources
with a color temperature close to that of direct sunlight appear white; light sources with a lower color tempera-
ture have a yellow or red cast, while those with a higher color temperature are tinged with blue. You can match
color temperature to the light source as shown in the following table, or choose options that di er sharply from
the color of the light source to make pictures “warmer” or “colder.”
Choose for redder light sources
or “colder” pictures
Choose for bluer light sources
or “warmer” pictures
