    Question How to attain filter effects using WB settings

    Hi...

    i managed to add a bluish tint almost similar to using a blue filter in front of my lens by setting the WB to tungsten when shooting under an almost overcast/sunny sky. But how do i control the degree of blueness? also, how do i add warmth (e.g. reddish tint) and the degree of redness?

    I used the alpha for my shots. Will appreciate if the recommended tips can be applied on the alpha...

    thanks!

    not sure whether the Alpha can set custom white balance using colour temperature.. if it can, basically the lower K values give you warmer tones while higher K values give bluish tones..
    correct me if I'm wrong..
