Many wedding photographers shoot everything in RAW format, preferring to take the time to fine-tune each image before processing and printing. Many of those images are made with on-camera flash and sometimes look a little flat.

Like all controls in any Canon camera, I merely ask you to play with them and make your own decisions as to how your vision is to be represented. If you like the concept of changing an image’s color temperature and want to apply it to existing, non-RAW, images, I’ve outlined a simple yet versatile Photoshop formula in my book Photoshop Effects for Portrait Photographers , also from Focal Press.
