I've been ask several times, what is the right white balance for shooting in the forest. Here is a sample below.. Whenever I take photograph of forest, I always set my camera's white balance into either direct sunlight, cloudy or shade... depending on the light available that time. The reason why I used mostly warm white balance is because of the green colors of the forest pop out when set to warm white balance. It is also a photographer's preference on which white balance they want to use to portray the photograph mood. Some times using cold white balance can create a very cold feel of the environment and also indicate night scene. It is totally your own personal preference which you experiment first.
