Easy Photo Tip: Tweak White Balance to Pump Up Colors in Your Images

Tweak the colors of sunrise and sunset images by adjusting the preset White Balance on your digital camera. Choose the Tungsten setting (light bulb icon) to add a bluish morning cast, or the Shade setting (cloud icon) to add the warm brownish tones of dusk. You’ll see a preview on the LCD monitor. The effect will be mild but can be exaggerated by underexposure.

Some cameras allow additional adjustments (as shown here). Experiment and enjoy!
