So everybody know that if you pick a higher colour temperature than that of the light you are under, you will get a warmer image; vice versa, if you pick a lower temperature, the imagery will end up with cooler light. What I want to know is why does this happen, and is there some sort of middle value the camera is trying to set everything on? That is, if I’m under 6000 K lighting and I pick 10,000 K white balance, is there a way for me to calculate which lighting (colour temperature) will I end up under? This is better generalized as given two colour temperatures, real one and chosen one,
