Understanding White Balance:
The White balance (WB) process removes unrealistic color casts, so that white 
objects appear white in your photos and all other colors look natural. Proper 
white balance has to take into account the “color temperature” of a light 
source, which refers to the relative warmth or coolness of white light.
