Oh, hello. I'm Dan Reinecke with Unknown Media. Today, I'm going to tell you how to reduce that nasty yellow light when shooting indoors. Now the reason that this light is actually showing up the color that it is is because of your white balance settings. Now each camera is going to be a little bit different in how you accomplish this, but here's what you're going to do. You're going to want to get a white card of some sort. A white piece of paper works, a white T-shirt works, just anything that is white. And you're going to go and you're going to take the picture of it close up. You're going to get a real tight picture of it with that light falling on to it. This is basically telling the camera hey this light that is falling on this nasty shade of yellow is actually supposed to be white. OK this is supposed to be a white piece of paper. And what you're going to do is go into your custom white balance settings in your camera and you're going to find the picture of that white piece of paper that you took and you're going to set that to the custom white balance selection. Now in doing that, the camera is going to know exactly what to do, it's going to go in and it's going to adjust and it's going to take out that yellow hue and switch that to a white light which is going to be a lot more aesthetically pleasing. So that is basically how you are going to change that nasty yellow light coming in with your indoor pictures. I'm Dan Reinecke, take your best shot.
