There are many confusing and difficult terminologies in photography world that a common person doesn't understand at all. One such term is 'White-Balance'. Although it may look simple, but the way it works can confuse anyone. White-Balance actually refers to a setting in your camera which is worth learning. The adjustment in your camera that makes sure the white color we see directly will also appear white in the image is referred to as 'White Balance'. White balance is one of the most important aspect in photography. The white balance of your camera has a strong impact on how your photographs look.
The main reason why professional photographers adjust 'white-balance' is to get the colors in their photographs as real and accurate as possible. So, white balance is the process of eliminating unrealistic colors from your picture so that objects in your picture look as real as they look to the naked eyes. Human brain can quickly adjust to different color temperatures and the result is that the human eye sees the actual, real colors. However, the digital cameras find it difficult to judge what is white under various light sources. That's the reason you sometimes see a blue, or yellow or orange or green tint in your pictures. Having a deeper white balance knowledge can help you overcome these color casts in your pictures, thereby improving your photography skills under a wider range of lighting conditions.
