Manual White Balance 1: Choose a Source of Light
Manual white balance means that you instruct the camera how to perform the white balance. The first option is to tell the camera under which source of light your subject is.
To do so you choose a symbol at your camera that comes closet to your situation and the camera will apply a corresponding color adjustment.
Typical choices are sunlight, flash, overcast sky, shade, tungsten and fluorescent light. The choice and additional options for fine tuning are depending on the camera manufacturer and model.
On the right there are symbols as Nikon uses them on the LCD viewfinder displays, the ones on your camera will be the same or very similar.
