    1. Hi Wei, I generally use 5600K colour balance and shoot in RAW then I adjust the colour balance in the software after if necessary. If you adjust your colour balance to compensate for sunset or twilight you can often lose the feeling of the colour of the light, so I prefer to shoot at 5600K (daylight/flash balance) and then adjust after.

  1. So for exposure balance what are you suggesting, and when you say optimum time to shoot. Still working on my twilight shots!

  2. St Ives! Such a vibrant town in the summer. I have plenty of photos taken here and many opportunities for the photographer. Such a good vantage point up high. Some great tips here about timing, thanks.
