I'm reading your guys' white balance tutorial, great material!
One part has me confused however, on this page :
Tutorial: White Balance & Color Temperature
Under the "Background : color temperature"
It states "As the color temperature rises, the color distribution becomes cooler." That means as the color temp. rises, the image gets more blue. Correct?
Under the "In Practice : JPEG & TIFF files"
There is a column of camera white balance settings with their icons and says "The remaining six white balances are listed in order of increasing color temperature"
Below it it says "In general, if your image appears too cool on your LCD screen preview (regardless of the setting), you can quickly increase the color temperature by selecting a symbol further down on the list above."
Here is what I don't understand. If my image is too cool (looks too blue) and I increase the temp. won't it make my image even cooler (more blue)?
As far as I know, the temperature is inversely related to the wavelength. Meaning, shorter wave length = cooler/bluer image, higher wavelength = warmer/redder image.
Or am I missing something?
