Color temperature is a numerical system for measuring color on a warm-to-cool spectrum. It is measured in degrees Kelvin (K) with higher numbers corresponding to bluer, or “cooler” tones and lower numbers corresponding to yellower, “warmer” tones. It may seem counterintuitive that color temperatures that are higher degrees Kelvin are considered cooler, but it helps to think of a flame – blue flames are actually burning at a higher temperature than yellow flames.Technical explanation of Color TemperatureWhy does color temperature go from “warm” to “cool”,...

Just remember that even in the 1940’s, Ansel Adams could capture both sunlit snow and deep shade on a single piece of B&W film.)Also thankfully, the psychedelic, over-processed HDR fad... READ MORE
